Hello friends, hope this finds you in good spirit. It’s another year end & we give thanks. The year has meant different things to us all & we’ve also experienced a lot in almost 365days. One of my personal experiences is the IWS Luth Trolley Library at LUTh hospital Idi Araba, Lagos, Nigeria. I joined the IWS society earlier in the year & was inducted a member. This experience has brought me plenty joy, sorrow & most of all taught me to appreciate humanity on another level. At the Luth Trolley library, a few of us gather every Wednesday from 1pm -3pm to give out old or new Books, Magazines, Children Books, Crayons, Puzzles, Bibles, Qurans, Devotionals, Novels, Comics to our sick patients from ward to ward. From the Children’s ward to the mental illness, Women/ Men with Cancer, Accident ward, Newborns with complications & so on. We give books/magazines to read & some are read to by their loved ones. A lot of times we forget those that are sick not because we want to but the hustle and bustle of life has dimmed the voice of humanity or some just have a phobia for hospitals, some want to help but scared of fakes(pple who loot from the sick) and some just don’t care cos its not their family. Well, today I beg you to CARE...as we all know our health system is not entirely the best but we have good men/ women who make sure our sick find the best care. In your own little way, just as you read or watch TV at home kindly remember that our sick would love to have that privilege as well. So kindly contact me via DM if you have old or new books/magazines you’d like to give away, rather than burn or use as bag puffers, shoe expanders, cupboard layers or even sell to the Akàrá woman. Your books would go a long way & would definitely put a SMILE on a patients face. Thank you & God bless Nigeria.
P.S Water, Toilet Roll, Latex gloves, Bath soap, Pillows, Water Mattress(For bed sores) are some of the things patients appreciate too, just in case you want to do more.
