The Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), House of Grace Parish, Isolo, has equipped and furnished a private ward in Isolo General Hospital, Lagos, as a way to celebrate the 50th Birthday of the Head of Parish, Pastor Olaolu Oyeleke.
Speaking at the inauguration and handing over of the facility to the hospital, the Medical Director/CEO, Isolo General Hospital, Dr Godwin Akhabhoa, expressed appreciation to the RCCG, House of Grace Parish, for its kind gesture to the hospital.
Dr Akhabhoa disclosed that the Healthcare Centre is among the foremost General Hospitals in Lagos State with adequate and well trained medical personnel offering affordable services to its teeming clients.
He commended the members of the Church for supporting the hospital by fully equipping a Private Ward, assuring that the facility would be properly maintained and optimally utilised for the benefit of all Lagosians.
Earlier, while handing over the facility to the Hospital, the Celebrant and Head, House of Grace Parish, Pastor Olaolu Oyeleke, thanked members of the church who had raised the funds and executed the project without his knowledge.
He explained that he was not too surprised because such gesture is what the Redeemed Christian Church of God, House of Grace Parish is known for, saying “Members of the Church knew that I would be happy with this type of project that was why they went for it”,
The Pastor said: “The donation is in line with the slogan of the Parish which is: ‘To Be Like Christ In Everything’. When the Church was still located at Ile Iwe-Metta Estate in Isolo, we provided street lights for the community, renovated Ile Iwe-Metta Primary School and regularly carried out environmental sanitation in the community”.
“The gesture is part of the vision of House of Grace Parish, which is to complement the efforts of the State government. With this donation, the House of Grace Parish has adopted Isolo General Hospital as a place it will be supporting regularly”, he added.
One of the members of the Church behind the initiative, Ms Omolara Olaniya said that when the idea was conceived, she called the hospital to inquire about some of its needs but chose the equipping and renovation of the private ward among other options.
The Parish equipped the ward with Two new Automatic Hospital Beds, Two Suction Machines, an Oxygen Concentrator, Two Drip Stands, Two Baby Cots, Two Cabinets, Two Standing Fans, Electric Scale, Plastic Chairs, Over-Bed Tables, Window Blinds and general makeover of the facility.
Meanwhile, a special birthday gift was later given to Pastor Olaolu Oyeleke on behalf of the Staff of Isolo General Hospital by the Medical Director/Chief Executive Officer, Dr Godwin Akhabhoa.
