Oxbridge donates to Lasuth

In what has become a healthy culture of imbibing compassion and giving back to our community, students of the college, under the auspices of Humanitarian Club, visited the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital, of June, 2014.

A group of students and some members of staff didn’t go empty-handed, but with drugs, food stuffs and other provisions to alleviate the plight of the less- privileged and the indigent in the hospital. The donation was specifically given to the HIV/AIDs section of the hospital. It is must noted that the funds for the donation were raised by both students and staff of the college.

Dr. (Mrs) Ibitoye, a consultant paediatrician, and Dr. (Mrs) Akinwumi, the head of the Paediatrics Section of the teaching hospital, received the visiting students and some members of staff led by Mr. P. O. Adeleke. In a formal, short presentation, the students had a rare opportunity to interact with the medical personnel, who gave professional advice to some of the students that may want to pursue medical careers.

The team was subsequently conducted round the wards of the hospital by the Chief Matron. The reality of many sick children barely hanging on to life left an indelible mark on the students and they truly realised the virtue of doing something no matter how small.
