The Visioner of Olu Kosoko Foundation, Prince Olu Kosoko, during the launch of Rotary Family Health Day programme on Friday 20th November 2020 stated that residents of Badagry deserve a better healthcare structure and charged all stakeholders to rise to the challenge of improving it.

“Sincere apologies that I could not make it in person because of the current Covid-19 lockdown in United Kingdom but charity and humanitarian works can be done from the deepest part of our hearts to anywhere in the world. Hence charity is boundless,” he said.

“Today, we shall give free consultation, free medication to 1,000 persons in the next two days to aged, young adults, teens, children in Badagry. We have a strong medical team of highly experienced and qualified doctors and professional nurses to support the health mission.” Kosoko added.
