The CMD also solicited for the continued support of well-meaning individuals and organisations in the ongoing battle against the Coronavirus pandemic, saying that “we are not at the end of the COVID war yet, but l pray that God will continue to enlarge the coast of donors as their assistance is vital to reducing the spread of the disease in Nigeria”.
Responding, the representative of the Church, Pastor Grace Ofili stated that concern of the Church for frontline health workers in the fight against the pandemic reinforced the decision and choice of donation to the hospital.
She thanked the management for the good work done and prayed that God will multiply their efforts.
