The Edo Nurses Welfare Association UPTH branch on Saturday, 25th of March, 2023 conferred an honourary award on the Chief Medical Director (CMD) of the University of Port Harcourt Teaching Hospital (UPTH), Prof. Henry A.A. Ugboma. The event which took place at 50 Peace Drive, Abuloma, Rivers State had the CMD ably represented by the acting Public Relations Officer of UPTH, Ms. Meni Elabha.
The ‘GAME CHANGER OF OUR TIME’ award was given to the CMD as a result of his continued effort towards the welfare of Master Taiwo since he came into office in 2018. Master Taiwo was abandoned at the paediatrics department of the hospital years ago and since then, the hospital has been responsible for him.
Speaking at the event, Mrs. Mbamalu Margaret, the president of the association said the association had a laid down goal of extending a hand of help to the less priviledge throughout their years of existence but this year, they decided to look inward.
The President mentioned that the emergence of Prof. Ugboma as UPTH’s CMD was timely to humanity and the society at large. She profusely thanked the CMD and the hospital management for being there for the child since he was abandoned at one month until now that he is about 15years old.
Mbamalu expressed her heartfelt gratitude for all the good works that has happened during the CMD’s tenure in office and prayed the CMD remembered the association for good by continuously extending his hand of fellowship to them in the association.
She pleaded that the CMD does not forget his recent promise to give support in the repair and closure surgery of Taiwo to enable him live a normal life as other children his age.
She added that the association has been and will continue to be solidly behind the CMD.
Also at the event, the family of Nurse Grace Nwikena was also honoured accordingly for being the family that has accommodated Master Taiwo since 2019.
Mr. Nwikena, the husband to Nurse Nwikena was given a ‘PILLAR OF SUPPORT’ Award for accepting the child in his home despite his health condition stating that in this day and age, not all husbands would agree to this or allow their wives the opportunity to bring a total stranger into their home. Mr, Nwikena thanked the association profoundly for the award given to him and pledged his continued support to the child Master Taiwo.
The CMD thanked the association for the award and asked that the association keep up at their goal of extending a hand of help to the less privildege who live amongst us in the society
