A Non-Governmental Organi-sation (NGO), After My Heart Global Foundation Inc, Nigeria branch, has admonished Nigerians against stigmatisation of discharged corona virus patients. The Administrative Head of the NGO in Nigeria, Mrs. Erhumwunsee Osaretin, who gave the admonition while giving out face masks to the Aiyetoro-Makun Community in Sagamu, Ogun State, on behalf of the NGO, charged the people to use the face masks regularly.
Erhumwunse said the NGO picked Aiyetoro community as first phase for the face masks distribution because the global NGO, which is into provision of welfare for the people, especially the vulnerable and less privileged, to save people’s lives, believes that Aiyetoro people should be reached out to first to save them from exposing themselves to coronavirus pandemic.
Similarly, the National Director of the NGO, Engineer Akhigbe Matthew Adodo, while responding to some of the community people who had requested for money rather than face masks, reminded them that the NGO was in the community to give out the face masks and also to sensitise them of the need to stay safe.
Adodo reiterated that since only a healthy person can think of money-making ventures, wearing the face masks and observing regular washing of hands with running water and soap, as well as maintenance of social distancing, would give them sound health to embark on wealth-creating ventures.
He urged them to know that corona virus is not only rich people’s disease as most people erroneously perceive.
