The Lagos Port Complex (LPC) Apapa has donated pharmaceutical products in multiple units to the General Hospital, Apapa and the Ijora Oloye Primary Health Centre.
LPC Port Manager, Mrs. Olufunmilayo Olotu, who presented the items during a visit to the medical facilities on Tuesday, said the initiative was part of the organisation’s Cooperate Social Responsibility (CRS) aimed at giving back to the society and to further boost the readiness of the facilities to serve Apapa community.
She said, “It is our goal to see how we can reach out to the less privileged because whoever comes to the general hospital is coming to a place they feel that at minimal cost, they will still get medical attention.
“We want to seize this opportunity to appreciate you because sometimes we have had emergencies beyond what the port clinic could readily attend to, and I was told that often times they rush them here, you have always been supportive.
“It is also our time to give back and we looked at things that will be quite useful in the hospital and we have come with them.
“I want to assure you that we are ready to partner with you, we are ready to see whatever we can do to make sure that we attend to issues in and around Apapa, with hope that this comes in partnership that will endure and be lasting.”
At the General Hospital, Apapa, the Medical Director, Dr. Ajibola Keshinro, who received the Apapa port team, appreciated the gesture, while also urging the public to leverage on the health insurance policy introduced by government.
At Ijora Oloye Primary Health Centre, the doctors and matrons also expressed appreciation for the donations.
