Adegbehingbe, who led other members of the association to donate food items to Hope Orphanage in Shagari area of Akure, also called for regular payment of medical doctors’ salaries.
She said regular payment of salaries of doctors would prevent their mass exodus in search of greener pastures outside Nigeria’s shores.
“They should provide all the equipment and pay salaries regularly so that they can also access good healthcare here.
“It is not everything that should be taken abroad, we have qualified medical personnel in this country that can compete with their counterparts anywhere in the world,” she said.
Adegbehingbe also urged Nigerians to pay attention to the plight of the less privileged in the country, saying that, “we have many people who are living in abject penury.”
“We decided to come to this orphanage because we have many indigent people in the society. We need to reach out to them regularly by providing food items and other materials.
“Most of them have the challenges in having basic needs, it will be good if we provide for them and also to help indigent children with payment of school fees,” she added. (NAN)
