By Elijah Ugani

As part of the efforts to commemorate the 2020 world patient’s day, The Akpanke Foundation paid hospital bill worth 3M for indigent and vulnerable patients who could not afford their bills as well as donated over 150 crutches, 3000 alcohol based sanitizer and 5000 facemasks during this Covid-19 pandemic.

In a statement made available to The Lumine News, and signed by the President/Founder of The Akpanke Foundation, Mr. Peter Akpanke, indicates that thousand of patients across the world suffer avoidable harm especially during this Covid-19 era or are put at risk of injury, while receiving healthcare every day.

The release reads “The 72nd World Health Assembly adopted resolution WHA 72.6 ‘Global action on patient safety’ on 25 May 2019. The resolution recognizes patient safety as a global health priority and endorses the establishment of this day 17th September, to be observed annually as the World Patient Safety Day.

“World Patient Safety Day calls for global solidarity and concerted action by all countries and international partners to improve patient safety. Furthermore, the Day brings together patients, families, caregivers, communities, health workers, health care leaders and policy-makers to show their commitment to patient safety.
No one should be harmed in health care. Yet thousands of patients across the world suffer avoidable harm especially in this Covid-19 era, or are put at risk of injury, while receiving health care every single day.

“The Akpanke Foundation in the virtue of prioritizing patients health and safety has donated over 3000 hand sanitizers, 150 crutches, 5000 face masks and paid hospital bills of patients under clinical care.

“We shall continue to lend our supportive hands to the lees privileged and the needy”
