WHO donates to victims of Owo Church attack

The World Health Organisation (WHO) has donated drugs, medical equipment, and other consumables to the Ondo State government to restore the health of victims of Sunday’s attack on St. Francis Catholic Church in Owo.

The Head of Mission and Country Representative in Nigeria of WHO, Dr. Walter Muolombo, presented the items to the state government in Akure, the state capital.

Colombo tagged the organization’s donation as its little way of assisting the state government in its moment of grief.

He urged the state government to interact with the officials of the state Ministry of Health in the areas of additional support.

The WHO Country Representative said he had directed some specialists to work with the state’s team to identify other areas of medical needs.

Receiving the medical items on behalf of the state government, the Commissioner for Health, Dr. Banji Ajaka, lauded the organization for the donation, describing it as “a huge support”.

Among the items donated were N/Saline IV, five percent D/saline, D/gloves, S/gloves, infusion-giving set, blood giving set, 10mls, needles and syringes, 5mls needles and syringes, green cannula and sutures.
