Bauchi hails RCCG on dialysis centre donation
Bala Mohammed, the governor of Bauchi State, has hailed the Redeemed Christian Church of God for donating a dialysis center to the state.
The governor, who was represented by the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Health, Alhaji Ali Babayo, hailed the gesture as an initiative that would boost service delivery in the health sector during the presentation on Saturday at the Abubakar Tafawa Balewa Teaching Hospital.
To have a stronger impact, he added, the health sector needs more coordination between the government and other key organizations such as religious organisations.
“The government is willing and it is embracing the opportunity to work with the church to implement social-intervention programmes that would be beneficial to all residents of the state and we urged other religious bodies to take a cue from RCCG’s intervention,” Mohammed said.
The initiative was facilitated by the charity arm of the church, His Love Foundation as part of its medical intervention programmes, bringing the number of dialysis machines commissioned across Nigeria to 37.
In a statement on Thursday, the Assistant Continental Overseer in charge of CSR, Pastor Idowu Iluyomade, said the donation in Bauchi was specifically to ensure the impact projects of the charity organisation, continue to spread across the length and breadth of the country.
Iluyomade explained that the center in Bauchi has three Dialysis Machines, one Medical Water Reverse Osmosis Purification System and one dedicated 30KVA generator to complement Bauchi State Government efforts in the critical health management system.
He said, “The church is committed to impacting lives in all ramifications as the case burden for kidney disease management is quite heavy, but with the special grace of God, the Christian Social Responsibility arm of the Redeemed Christian Church Of God will continue to uphold the divine mandate of our Lord and Saviour.”
