This hospital when completed will serve the entire Katsina State and the neighboring States that will have easy access to medical facility.
A good donor projects of this nature could not be possible without the encouragement and supports of other people who makes it possible to be a dream that comes true.
The history of this hospital can not be completed without mentioning our grandfather, the elder statesman Alhaji Sani Zangon-Daura (Danmasanin Daura) whom played multiple roles towards the realization of this project. First of all, the hospital is his brainchild out of caring, concerns, love and wellbeing of our people, he comeup with the idea to have such a hospital which we believed will reduce the difficulties, harship and sufferings of our people and neighboring communities in accessing health care facilities particularly the poor and less-privileged ones who cannot afford traveling to distant places to access health care facilities.
Secondly, he approached donor, the philantropist without a border and sold the idea to him which he agrees and responded positively.
Thirdly, Baba Danmasani donates multi-million Naira land for commencement of this important project that will be part of his legacies as one of the most illustrious sons of Daura that formed part of our trios who puts smiles on our faces.
Our appreciation also go to our elders and members of Daura Emirate Development Forum Abuja Chapter who spares their times to attend meetings with the donor in planning and making this noble project a successful one.
Our appreciation goes to the entire management of Belema Oil and Foundation who found it worthy of their moral supports to encouraged the Chairman to build this standard world class hospital.
As for the Philantropist Without Border Mr T.S. Jack-Rich we runs short of words to express our profound appreciation and gratitude to you for donating this ‘CHILDREN’S SPECIALIST HOSPITAL’.
However, listening to your speech at the occasion is a rare privileged to tapp philosophical ideas in shaping the worldviews of those who listened to you attentively. What he displays on that important day is humility of the highest order where the rich should not think their wealth is for them alone, but should share it with others. We thank you for all what you are doing to improve the qualities of life of people in different parts of Nigeria. May Almighty Allah continue to protect and bless you.
We are grateful to the Governor of Katsina State His Excellency Rt. Hon. Aminu Bello Masari, His Royal Highness Alhaji Farouk Umar Farouk the Emir of Daura and all the dignitaries that spares their times from far and near to attends and witnessed this occasion.
