Zaria   –     Ja’iz Foundation has donated 50 sets of hospital beds, mattresses and 30 side drawers to a Muslim Hospital in Zaria, Kaduna State.

The foundation’s Chairman, Alhaji Umar Mutallab disclosed this while presenting the items to the management of the hospital in Zaria on Monday.

Mutallab, who was represented by Alhaji Nafi’u Baba-Ahmed, an official of the foundation, said that the donation was part of the corporate social responsibilities of the organisation.

He prayed God to reward those who initiated the donation process and called on the Muslim Ummah not to relent in discharging its obligations.

The Director-General, Ja’iz Foundation, Amb. Babangida Ibrahim said that the organisation was a charity foundation established in 2012 with the sole aim of rendering assistance to the general public.

“This is part of our corporate social responsibilities. We do assist people in areas of health, agriculture and victims, among others.

“Health sector is one important area we give priority.We donate hospital equipment, ambulances and many other things,” he said.

According to him, the Muslim Hospital had approached the foundation with some requests including hospital equipment and structure for its School of Nursing and Midwifery.

“In view of these requests, the management of the foundation studied the requests and resolved to tackle one of their immediate problems which is scarcity of beds.

“This is because, they have enough space and people are patronising the hospital, hence the need to add more beds to enable them accommodate more patients.

“Therefore, the management decided to come and present 50 beds, 50 mattresses and 30 sets of drawers to the hospital to address some of their immediate needs, “he said.

The Director General appealed to Muslims to extend similar gesture to the hospital considering the services it was providing to save the lives of people.

Earlier, the Chairman, Board of Management, Muslim Hospital, Dr Abdulhamid Bala-Abubakar appreciated the donors for their kind gestures and urged them to sustain the good spirit.

He said that the hospital was founded in 1993 but started admitting patients in 2003 with just 20 beds which increased to 90.

Bala-Abubakar recalled that some years back the hospital had received a grant of $550 million from Islamic Development Bank (IDB) which was used to develop the hospital.

The chairman said that the hospital had established a School of Nursing and Midwifery which would take-off with at least 150 beds.

He, however, noted with satisfaction the recent donation stressing the hospital had now met the requirements of running a full-pledged School of Nursing and Midwifery.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that after the presentation of the items, the management of the two organisations inspected facilities at the hospital.
