This would not have been possible without the support of MMM and we are saying a big thank you to them. As you can see, lives have been touched and the patients are happier. We thank God for this opportunity. We have reached out to many patients and offset the medical bills of 14 of them.”
While reacting to the development, Chief Dental Surgeon at Oyems B Hospital, Dr Donald Chukwuemezie said: “This is a life changing event and we are so happy that it is happening here. The lives of 43 patients from our hospital were impacted today and they are all happy. You can see the smiles on their faces.”
Speaking, Amaka Benson, Offline Secretary & Events Manager for MMM Charity: “MMM Nigeria this year has stepped up activities in communities from the regular peer to peer donation /charity event to a monthly peer to peer donation and monthly charity events/empowerments in various states of the country.
“Today we are happy to sponsor this initiative in conjunction with Life changing Humanitarian Services. Seeing the joy on the faces of these individuals makes us happy and fulfilled as a community that is set to reduce poverty to its barest minimum.” My greatest joy today is the delicate lives that MMM has saved today through this NGO by making funds available for the patients who need blood infusion to survive. I love this job and I thank God for the privilege to serve humanity via this medium. Long live MMM!

Responding on behalf of the foundation, its founder, Rabi Maidunama thanked MMM for the donation, saying but for the timely intervention of the organization, it would have been difficult for the foundation to meet its target on the day. She called on other organizations and individuals in the country to help the foundation meet its needs.
