A Non-Governmental Organisation, Cancer Enlightenment and Support Foundation (CESUF), has made a cash donation to cancer patients at the Pediatric ward of Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LASUTH), as part of its charity and empathy gesture, as well as to mark the Foundation’s third anniversary on Tuesday, 19th January, 2021.
Representative of the Chief Medical Director, Prof. Adetokunbo O. Fabamwo, and Director of Hospital Administration (LASUTH), Mr. Kehinde Gbajumo, who received the cash donation on behalf of the Management, applauded the Foundation’s efforts to uplift the indigent patients.
He assured them that the children will surely get good care as the donation will be put to good use and called on other philanthropists to emulate the kind gesture of the Foundation by supporting the less privileged in the society.
Earlier, the Chairman, Board of Trustees of the Foundation, Elder Adegboyega Adepitan, appreciated the Management of LASUTH for its kind reception, noting that he is a colon cancer survivor and that his fight and covenant with God gave birth to the Foundation.
He said, “For the past three years, LASUTH had been our major concern and we run with the theme ‘Having Cancer is not a Death Sentence’. This had enabled us to reach out to society to educate the citizens that they can live in spite of the illness”.
“We have continued to receive fund requests from indigent patients from various hospitals and our most pathetic findings were that children as young as three years old have one form of cancer or the other. This is why we are celebrating our third anniversary with these children in order to lift up their spirits and give as much financial support as we can”, he added.
