In a bid to support the Federal Government’s effort in the provision of equipment to hospitals across the country, a Rotary International Polio Ambassador to Nigeria and philanthropist, Dr. Emeka Offor, has concluded plans to distribute medical equipment and supplies to needy hospitals and health institutions in Nigeria.

Dr. Offor, who is also the Founder of Sir Emeka Offor Foundation, and his team have since departed to Atlanta where he is expected to flag-off the shipment of 40ft containers of the Medical Equipment and Supplies.

Speaking with journalists in Abuja on Thursday, a member of the Board of Trustees of the Sir Emeka Foundation, Tony Obi, reiterated that the equipment are meant to be distributed to “needy hospitals and health institutions in Nigeria. “

Obi noted that “The Minister of Health, Dr. Osagie Ehanire and other Federal Ministry officials are expected to represent the Federal Government of Nigeria at the event, as well as the Consul General of the Nigerian Mission.”

He further disclosed that Offor has been honored with an International Humanitarian Award in Biloxi, Mississippi, USA by Andrew J. Young Foundation, Inc of Atlanta, Georgia.

Obi quoted Ambassador Andrew Young, as saying that the honor was in appreciation of Sir Emeka’s philanthropic and public-spirited endeavors in Nigeria, Africa and beyond.

It would be recalled that both Andrew J. Young Foundation and Dr. Emeka Offor Foundation have engaged in humanitarian initiatives to improve the life, health and wellbeing of humanity through programs and initiatives to assist challenged communities.
