A non-governmental Organisation, Blessed Hands Ministry (BHM), has urged Nigerians to show concern for the sick.
Its President, Elfreda Akintewe, who spoke when the organisation visited the Children’s Ward C and D at the National Orthopaedic Hospital, Igbobi, Lagos recently, said the sick should not be forgotten.
According to her, the government and well-meaning people should play their roles to help poor patients, especially children.
“I feel this is what God wants people to do. If he blesses you, then you should be a blessing to others,” she said.
Mrs Akintewe enjoined doctors and nurses to continue to support the children so that they can recover quickly.
She described children as the future, saying they deserved care and support.
Mrs Akintewe said times were hard, adding that it takes people with a good heart to help the needy.
She said her organisation has been lending a hand to the indigent since 2011 in villages, but opted to visit the hospital to put smiles on children’s faces.
“We do not expect any recognition, but heavenly reward,” she said.
The team prayed for the sicks’ quick recovery and presented gifts to them.
