Ten million naira has been released by the Plateau State government to support surgeries for ten children affected by various heart ailments in the state.

The State’s Commissioner for Health, Dr. Kunden Deyin made this known on Tuesday in Jos, while handing over new ambulances to five General Hospitals in Mangu, Barikin-Ladi, Shendam, Langtang and Pankshin.

Deyin said: “We gave the ambulances to them because of how busy these hospitals are; the ambulances would also be of benefit to their surrounding communities.”

He promised that other general hospitals would also be considered.

The Commissioner explained further that the Plateau State Government was concerned about the health of its people and would ensure access to viable health care services to all residents.

Dr. Emmanuel Nahu of General Hospital Pankshin, who spoke on behalf of the other recipients, commended the government for making the health sector one of its focal point.
