The Auradicals Foundation for Democracy and Human Rights has donated medical equipment and supplies worth millions of Leones to the Fourah Bay College clinic. The donation is to provide much needed medical items to boost healthcare service to the student populace.
The items were presented to the college administration at the Adjayi Crowther Amphitheater during the 192nd anniversary celebrations of the Fourah Bay College on Monday.
The supplies to the Fourah Bay College Clinic included one medical examination bed, IV stands, bedside tables, injection needles, syringes, personal protective gowns, towels, orthopedic and wound care supplies.
The College administration commended the Auradicals Foundation for their timely intervention and gesture, particularly at a time when the clinic does not have sufficient medical supplies.
The gesture is amongst many other donations the Foundation has made to hospitals nationwide, including the Nixon Memorial Hospital in Segbwema, the Rokupurr Government Hospital in Kambia and the 34 Military Hospital at Wilberforce. Makeni, Kenema and Bo Government Hospitals, as well as Cottage and Connaught Hospitals are also beneficiaries.
The Auradicals Foundation has undertaken various humanitarian drives over the years, including the donation of non-food items and financial assistance to mudslide and flood Victims; donation of food items worth two hundred million Leones to treatment centers and families affected by the dreadful Ebola Virus Disease across the country.
The Auradicals Foundation is an offshoot of the Auradicals Club, which was founded at Fourah Bay College in 1973. The Foundation currently operates in Sierra Leone, the United States and the United Kingdom. It provides services in the areas of education, health, social justice and human development.
