I would say on behalf of everyone who has benefited from the fund, we are sincerely grateful to have been chosen. It would also be great if it could continue because apart from the continuous need for the allowance, It could be used as a ‘war-chest’ for interventions in the heath sector or for health workers. Once again, thank you very much for thinking about us.
Giving.Ng has stood out for their consistency and support since the COVID pandemic hit the shores of Nigeria. Their support through the Health Workers Fund is unrivalled and should be applauded by all and sundry. As a beneficiary of such funds, i would like to express my sincere gratitude for their consistency and continued support.
I want to thank all Nigerians especially, those who understand the sacrifice the Frontline Health Workers in various COVID-19 centers are making for the patients. I, on behalf of other beneficiaries and myself, appreciate your cash/monetary sacrifices to us through donations to Giving.ng and also thanking, in anticipation, many more donors that will join this train in showing appreciation to the COVID-19 Frontline Health Workers. We appreciate the donations a lot more than you can imagine
