The District Governor of Rotary International District 9110, Rotarian Omotunde Lawson has visited the first female baby born in Lagos State in 2023. She also made donations to the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LASUTH).

At a short ceremony held at the Ayinke House Auditorium, the District Governor, who is the first female to hold that esteemed position in the 42 year history of the District, noted that the visit was part of Rotary’s Areas of Focus, one of which is Maternal and Child Health. She said her visit was also an expression of compassion, love and kindness.

Lawson noted that her visit was specifically about the first female baby born at the beginning of the year because of her passion for the elevation of the girl child and to congratulate the mother, Mrs Deborah Omirin.

The District Governor also said that the birth of a child requires that the mother is adequately taken care of, to ensure the baby is healthy and well, noting that the arrival of the baby was not by chance and thus her care was a huge responsibility on the parents.

She advised mothers to live healthy lifestyles, embrace cleanliness and ensure that they exclusively feed their babies breast milk. She also enjoined them not to miss doctor’s appointments and immunization days.

While thanking the LASUTH management for facilitating Rotary District 9110’s visit, the DG thanked the Chief Medical Director, Prof. Adetokunbo Fabanwo, himself a Rotarian, for his commitment and leadership which has seen a remarkable improvement in the facility, and also his ability to rally his top staff to be present at short notice.

In his response, Fabanwo thanked Rotary District 9110 for the visit and presentation of assorted equipment to the hospital. He stated that such donations go a long way in helping LASUTH maintain its pride of place as top-rate health facility, insisting that government cannot do it alone.

The Professor of Obstetrics and Gynaecology stated that LASUTH has been undergoing substantial upgrade over the years and is not only equipped to offer advanced treatments but also have experienced consultants and medical professionals at the disposal of patients.

The elated mother of the lucky baby thanked Rotary District 91110 for the charitable gesture and said the donations will help  her family ease some financial stress.

The District Governor was accompanied on the visit by Past District Governor Deinde Shoga; Past District Governor Yomi Adewunmi; Assistant Regional Public Image Coordinator, Rotarian Michael Effiong; District Secretary, Assistant Governor Azuh Arinze; Past Assistant Governor Lanre Kassim; Past Assistant Governor Busola Satuyi; Past Assistant Governor Segun Adewakun; Assistant Governor Valentine Shomoye; Past President Kefe Adedibu; Rotarian Tunde Olaleye; Past President Bisi Taiwo; Rotarin Alozie Nzirim; and members of Rotary Club of Gbagada, among others.
