In commemorating the 2018 Children’s Day, YELOTO African Children Foundation celebrates the day with the children at the pediatric ward of Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LASUTH). Also, to share in their pains, the organisation paid the surgeries fees for 10 indigent families.
The Chief Medical Director, Prof. Adewale Oke thanked Yeloto for the gesture in making the donations. He pointed out that “Yeloto has always been a part of success story at the facility and promised that the donations will be used with care.
YELOTO Director of Communications and Public relations officer Mr. Olasunkanmi Idowu emphasized that the organisation has been partnering with Lagos State Teaching Hospital (LASUTH) management for the past six years in bringing succour to the needy who can’t afford the fee for surgeries. He also encouraged the parents of the beneficiaries by saying “I want to tell you parents that hope is not lost, I’m sure this time last week you were not sure of what will happen, but God has used Yeloto for you and I’m sure permanent health will come the way of your children after the surgery we hope to do more of this.”
Dr. Oluyemi Olawaiye, Founder/Executive Director, YELOTO in his remarks welcomed the new chairman of Yeloto African Children Foundation in person of Dr. Fowobi Gbadebo, a child and adolescent psychiatrist based in United States.
Dr. Olawaiye also stated that “We at YELOTO will be celebrating with the children on May 27th 2018, at Lagos State University Teaching Hospital. As part of our annual charity event, we shall sponsor surgeries and associated costs of medications for ten children from indigent families.
With the assistance of LASUTH social workers and its executive management team, YELOTO has been handed the list of ten beneficiaries of this year’s sponsorship scheme.
In addition, YELOTO will provide food and drinks to each child in the pediatric ward of LASUTH, to express our care towards them and to reassure them that they are NEVER far from our minds.
