This brings the total number of donated ultra-modern intensive care centres to 15 across the country.
The Assistant Continental Overseer/Intercontinental Overseer, Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), Pastor Idowu, said: “The gesture was aimed at alleviating the sufferings of kidney patients and providing affordable treatment to the less privileged across the South East region of Nigeria and in line with the vision of Adeboye to provide medical intervention to the poor.
“His Love Foundation has worked continuously to improve the well-being of citizens. As a step towards promoting healthcare, we have donated 48 dialysis machines. This will make affordable dialysis treatment
available to patients in towns of various districts, closer to their homes. We believe this initiative will offer conveniences of time and cost for patients, as they no longer have to travel to big cities for dialysis.”
