The corps members of NYSC Environmental Protection and Sanitation CDS Group, FCT on Friday 16th May visited the Nyanya bomb blast victims at Asokoro District Hospital Abuja.
On arrival, the group was welcomed by the hospital secretary, Mr Iliyasu Mohammed who thanked them for taking time out to visit the bomb blast victims. He took the group on a guided tour around the Accident and Emergency ward of the hospital.
The corps members divided themselves into two teams; while the first team of batch B corps members led by the CDS group’s president, Chibueze Offiah and secretary, Bello Sunday visited with the bomb blast victims, the second team visited the Maternity ward led by their supervisor, Mrs. Busayo Bello Yusuf. In the maternity ward, gift items which had been donated by the corps members were presented to the hospital staff. They included pampers, detergents, rolls of toilet tissue, bars of soap and other sanitary items to aid in the hospital upkeep.
The corps members also spent time chatting with the victims of the blast that rocked Nyanya on the fateful 14th of April, they encouraged them, wished them quick recovery and also prayed for them. The patients were overjoyed to have received such august visitors; an elderly man among them advised the corps members never to allow people lure them into committing heinous crimes. He reminded them that they are the leaders of tomorrow and as a result, had certain responsibilities to live up to.
At the end of the visit, Mr Iliyasu thanked the corps members once more on behalf of the hospital authorities. He prayed for divine reward of their generosity and wished them well in their future endeavours.
