The clinic belonging to The Methodist Theological Institute (MTI) Chaplaincy is now in a good stead to offer improved healthcare services following a donation of medical equipment and supplies by a United States-based philanthropic organisation, The Nwadinobi Foundation.
The equipment and supplies worth millions of naira include beds, orthopedic mattresses, clutches, walkers and various medical supplies and consumables.
Founder of Nwadinobi Foundation, Dr John Nwadinobi said he feels a sense of joy and fulfillment by giving back to the society, especially the church, adding that he was determined to assist the MTI clinic to offer standard healthcare services.
He promised to bring more hospital accessories and medical supplies to the clinic, adding that he would also assist in training the staffs of the MTI clinic, including physicians and nurses while updating them with latest development in healthcare services.
Rector of MTI, Very Rev. Okechukwu Ogba, was excited to receive the donations and thanked Dr. Nwadinobi for the gesture, which he said would attract divine rewards as the donation is good works.
He said that a member of the church, Dame Ngozi Chikwendu, who is a former head of service, Abia State, had built the clinic for MTI and had promised to bring her cousin, Dr. Nwadinobi to equip it.
According to him, the promised has now been fulfilled with the coming of Dr. Nwadinobi with the equipment and medical supplies. He expressed gratitude to Dame Chikwendu, who even in retirement has continued to offer services to God and humanity.
In her remarks, Dame Ngozi Chikwendu said she was happy her cousin, Dr. Nwadinobi has fulfilled the promise he made, urging him to continue to offer assistance to the MTI clinic on regular basis and to attract other philanthropists to the clinic.
She said that God would “align the clinic with the right personnel to convert the clinic into a centre of excellence for physical and spiritual healing.”
