Pastor Adeboye Donates Kidney Dialysis Machine As UCH Marks 62 Founder’s Day

The University College Hospital, Ibadan marked its 62nd founder’s day on Tuesday, the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adeboye donated a dialysis machine worth N10m to help patients with kidney problems across the country.

Pastor Adeboye, who was accompanied by the top management of UCH led by the Chief Medical Director of the hospital, Prof. Abiodun Otegbayo said the donation was necessary for view of the vital role that kidney plays in the life of to human being.

Unlike what operates nowadays, the prominent cleric said going overseas for treatment was not common during his childhood days.

He said, “people didn’t think of going abroad for their treatment when we were young, they believed once you come to UCH, they would be healed.” Talking to kidney patients and the teaching hospital, Pastor Adeboye said, “I rejoice with you that we have already had one on ground and we will have another two by the end of this year. I promised to do more because kidney is vital to human existence looking at the challenges people living with kidney problems are facing”. Making allusion to the Holy Bible where a woman with the issue of blood ran to Jesus Christ for healing, he enjoined those with problems to Jesus. “If human being can’t help us, then we can go to the all-sufficient God and we keep crying to him”. The Chief Medical Director of UCH, Prof. Abiodun Otegbayo made a clarion call to well-meaning Nigerians to donate generously for the development of the hospital.

Otegbayo who took over from Prof Temitope Alonge stressed that funds remained the greatest challenge confronting the hospital.

Other challenges militating against the hospital, he noted, include payment of huge amount of money for the supply of electricity, buying diesel for generators, lack of adequate equipment, problem of water supply, training of staff and absence of good infrastructure among others.
