The Diana Foundation International (DFI) donates psychiatric drugs and items worth over N500,000 to psychiatric patients in ESUTH Neuropsychiatric Hospital in Enugu, Nigeria. DFI focuses on aiding disabled people and the oppressed in their daily lives, improving their economic activities, and providing materials to improve their lives.
The NGO wanted to support the psychiatric patients by donating psychiatric drugs, surgical gloves, disinfectants, toiletries, cooked food, soft drinks, a few bags of rice, beans, carton tin tomatoes, and confectionaries. The NGO also donated to the Federal Neuropsychiatric Hospital in New Haven, Enugu & Primary Health Centre in Ugwogo-Nike near Enugu.
Ijeoma Ede, the founder of DFI, said that she was moved when she gave out the items to the patients on Sunday because she saw the psychiatric patients excited and felt that they had a sense of belonging. She added that she’s happy that her foundation can touch lives, especially patients in the hospital. She noticed that the patients were delighted to see people close and interact as equals and not look down on them. She encourages Nigerians to support their society and bond with each other no matter their social-economic status.
