Ishk Foundation, Indian, in conjunction with Hon. Jonathan Shuki, Chun Mada, CAN and JNI, has commenced the processes of donating free artificial limbs to over 300 amputees from Nasarawa and other states.
The three days registration process was flagged off yesterday by Governor Abdullahi Sule, at a brief ceremony at Baptist Church, Akwanga, Nasarawa State.
Gov Sule, represented by Kwanta Yakubu, his Special Adviser on Youth and Sports, said his administration welcomes individual
initiatives to close up gap in health service delivery.
“You are surely on track with our development policies and
programmes in the march to make Nasarawa State a great State” he said.
Earlier, the chief sponsor of the program Jonathan Shuki, said there is no political undertone in the program, rather it was purely service to humanity.
He said after registration and taking measurements, the artificial limps will be supplied within 6 weeks to all the beneficiaries for free.
On his part, the Chun Mada, Pastor Samson Gamu Yare, representatives of CAN and JNI, all expressed their individual desire to attract more of such free medical care for the people of the state.
Some of the beneficiaries, Mr Francis Ogiri and Binta Abdullahi, both thanked the foundation and the sponsor for their kind gesture, as they prayed God to bless them.
The beneficiaries were drawn from drawn from Nasarawa, Benue, Plateau, Bauchi and Gombe States, who turned out in their numbers.
