Nollywood actress, Rukky Sanda yesterday, Sunday, February 14 paid a surprise to the D2 ward of the Lagos University Teaching Hospital. She spent some time with doctors, nurses and children in the spirit of Valentine.
She donated and install fans to the whole ward, got toys and activity books for the kids and also gift hampers for the nurses and doctors working in the ward. This inspiration came after she visited her niece who was referred there from a private hospital.
She shared these photos and message on her Instagram page.
“I want to give a big shout out to these beautiful amazing doctors & Nurses at the D2 children’s ward in LUTH and every other amazing doctor/nurse/individual that has dedicated their lives towards saving lives, esp the those working in the govt* teaching hospitals… Wow! What more can I say? May God bless ur hearts and fill ur homes with joy, favor, happiness & bliss cos it’s not easy doing what they do and for that reason I applaud them greatly. It’s funny last Tuesday for some reason my niece was sent there from a private hospital (she’s perfectly fine now by d way) so I had to visit her & spent an hour there which made me a lil sick for d past couple of days… No ventilation, ppl had to buy their own personal table fans upon admission. Something had to be done & I decided to donate and install fans to d whole ward which I did today in addition to getting toys & activity books for d kids & gift hampers for Ds beautiful nurses & doctors working in such harsh & uncomfortable conditions… Ok this is getting long & I’m tired of typing Ds story. Bottom line is the ward I visited is just a tiny little fraction of the general children’s ward* Tz 4 floors and I did one. That building is only a tiny little part of LUTH and LUTH is only a tiny little part of the rest of the govt hospitals in Lagos let alone d country. I did the little I could today and it’s definitely in my top priorities to do more every single time I can but together we can achieve greater things. The little u give and do goes a long way. It’s high time we stop yelling govt*** cos if it’s by our voices being heard a lot of things should be in order by now in this country. It’s time we as individuals, not only celebrities it’s time we all start to lend a helping hand and together we will achieve #Greatness. God bless u guys, happy14th…💋”
