While inaugurating six new wards and two laboratories built by Dangote Foundation at the Murtala Mohammed hospital, Kano State, the Commissioner for Health, Dr. Kabiru Getso, has said that the Hospital takes delivery of not less than 2,000 babies every month, saying that between 60 and 70 babies were being delivered by the day at the hospital.
The Commissioner has noted that these 2,000 monthly indices of new delivery were just the ones recorded at the hospital, adding that the intervention by Dangote Foundation in renovating and building the six wards and two laboratories was a great relief to the government that had become overburdened by the challenges of the maternal wards.
The units build and renovated include two post-maternal wards, one antenatal ward, eclimpsia room, theater and labor room, maternal blood bank and maternity laboratory. Fatima Aliko Dangote, daughter of the President of Dangote Group, said they provided support to the less privilege ones as their social and corporate intervention in Nigeria.
She said the foundation was created by their family to impact on the lives of the common man and intervenes in all sectors of human endeavor.
