AWOTUNDE sent a message to Sheldon Adelson Chairman and CEO, Las Vegas Sands Corp. – email address that said:
My name is Ebenezer. I am a citizen of Nigeria.
I studied Health Information Management / Health Record, I graduated from ABU Teaching Hospital, Zaria, Kaduna State.
I am the type that likes education and also like helping people that are in need.
I am contacting your foundation for two important issues.
In South-West part of Nigeria, especially in my environment, there are no hospital for poor and less privileged people. This causes a lot of death rate and transmission of communicable diseases.
People die young because of poverty and absence of free health care delivery system.
We have government hospitals and private hospitals, but people in my environment can not afford to pay hospital bill. All the hospitals will request for money before attending to the patient, even if the patient is at the point of death. This causes a lot of death and transmission of communicable diseases in my community.
Majority of people in my community are practicing small scale farming, just for them to survive.
Secondly, In this same area, there are children that are brave, brilliant, intelligent, etc, but end it up with nothing, I mean without using their brain for anything.
This is another problem my people are facing in our community and no one to help.
The government and the wealthy people of this country are not ready to help poor and less privileged people, they are just using money on irrelevancy.
I wrote letters to the federal government of this country on this issues, but no reply, no action. I also submitted proposal for collection of grant from NGOs, for we to carry out the project, no positive answer.
This poor and less privileged people in my community are willing to go to school but they can not afford to pay school fees because of poverty.
PLEASE, My people need free health care delivery system and free education for poor and less privilege people.
I will like your organization to help us to solve one of this problem, either you build hospital for poor and less privilege people with facilities, equipments and drugs OR you build well equipped school for the poor and less privilege people in our community.
You can come down here to help us on this issues OR you give us grant to carry out the project, for we to eradicate this problem my people are facing.
PLEASE, We are pleading for your support, help us.
