These last few weeks, I along with Save The Children have been working on something very specific, a breath of life. We plan to set up a 100-bed Covid facility in the city. This emergency medical facility will have experienced medical professionals, medications, and its own oxygen plant. For patients at home, we will give Covid home care kits, teleconsultations, and much more. Me and my family have donated, but I will need your help. Every contribution saves a life and no donation is too small. So, please I urge you, help us, help each other. Thank you.”
