On Thursday May 24th at the Kumba District Hospital, there was a welcoming ceremony for Mr. Nkwadi Pius, who donated 8 hospital beds and 24 mattresses, along with other hospital equipment, like crutches, to the hospital. Nkwadi lived most of his working life in the United States of America, working as a Nurse in various hospitals. He said that throughout his travels he always had Kumba fresh in his mind, and he will keep it in mind for the rest of his life.

The Divisional Officer’s representative was very grateful for the beds and mattresses donated. She stated that the hospital is a place that “restitutes health” and the patients should feel well after leaving.  To achieve this goal, with the help of the donation, the representative encouraged all of the staff to give their best possible effort to keep the hospital maintained.

Following the speeches, the group went outside and the reverend father John Tchamda blessed the new beds and mattresses. Along with the blessing, the members of the group offered each other a sign of peace and sang a couple of songs over the new beds.

Following the blessing, Mr. Nkwadi announced that he intended to adopt one of the wards in the near future.  The director of the District hospital asked the audience to encourage their friends to be as generous as Mr. Nkwadi and donate items, even if their items were not as expensive as the beds, to the hospital. The Government Delegate, Victor Ngoh Nkelle was happy to celebrate this child of the city, who had not forgotten the needs of his home community.
