The Rotary Club of Fajara in partnership with the Rotary Club of Royden UK last Thursday presented hospital materials to the Edward Francis Small Teaching Hospital (EFSTH) in Banjul.
The donated items included one neonatal incubator, oxygen tubes, masks, resuscitation box and other resuscitation equipment, curtains for maternity ward, towels, doctors and nurses uniforms, among other items.
The donation was made possible by Operation Save the Children on behalf of the Neonatal Ward of the Edward Francis Teaching Hospital.
Presenting the items on behalf of the president, Minyan Jobe, vice president of Fajara Rotary Club, said the Rotary Club of Fajara and Club of Royden Revolve are partners to the country’s main referral hospital as they always support and bring meaningful items to the hospital.
Jobe therefore assured the management of the hospital of the Rotary Club’s continued support to the hospital, saying they are here to complement the efforts of the Government in enhancing quality health service delivery in the country.
On receiving the items on behalf of the hospital management, Professor M I Khalil, Chief Medical Director of EFSTH, thanked Rotary Club of Fajara for facilitating the move.
He affirmed that this is not the donation by the Club.
He thanked the Rotary Club of Royden Revolve through Rotary Club of Fajara for this gesture.
Modou Lamin Jammeh, the Public Relations Officer of EFSTH also thanked the Rotarians on behalf of the hospital management.
The presentation made at the hospital premises was witnessed by officials of EFSTH, and Rotary Club of Fajara.
