It was all joy and excitement for the staff of Aviation Medical Clinics, Ikeja, Lagos state, as they received brand new sets of hospital supplies from the MTN Foundation under its What Can We Do Together (WCWDT) initiative.

The equipment included a hospital bed, stethoscopes, baby weighing scale, vacuum extractor, BP monitor, sterilizing set, amongst others, meant to facilitate the readiness of its maternal and child-care ward.

The Aviation Medical Clinics, founded in 1983, has four stations located in each of the four airports in Lagos, and is mandated by the international civil aviation agencies to attend to passengers airborne, ill passengers on transit and also private patients.

The centre is not the only beneficiary of the MTN What Can We Do Together initiative, as numerous communities across Nigeria, nominated by Nigerians, have benefitted from the initiative from MTN Nigeria.

At the handover ceremony of the items, the Head of the Aviation Medical Clinics Ikeja, Dr Mrs Bolanle Olatunji, applauded MTN Foundation for the kind gesture towards the clinics. In her statement, she recalled MTN Nigeria’s impact in Nigeria’s health sector, notably MTNs intervention for people with sickle cell.
