In memory of late Mr Olalekan Ogunsola of TOS Funerals, the Olalekan Ogunshola Memorial Foundation, on behalf of the family has donated 40 automatic hospital beds and 100 bedsheets to the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LASUTH).
The Chief Medical Director of LASUTH, Prof. Adetokunbo Fabamwo duly appreciated the Ogunsola family and describes the effort as a giant leap in helping the hospital achieve its goals. He said, “The relationship between LASUTH and TOS funerals led by Mrs Ogunsola, has been long-standing; the introduction of ultra-modern morgue services, the knack for success and the courage of the family has helped the hospital to grow.”
In her response, Mrs Taiwo Ogunsola, owner of TOS Funerals, made note that the urge to give back stems from her gratitude to God and to the hospital for giving them an environment to thrive and use their expertise to serve.
While promising to do more CSR in the future, she noted that this phase of the donation will be extended to the Gbagada General Hospital and Mainland Hospital where 100 bedsheets (each) would be delivered “We want to make our presence known and we also want to give back to it”, she said.
The representative of the Commissioner for Health, Dr Emmanuela Zamba, gave accolades to TOS Funerals, “when it comes to Private-Public Partnerships (PPP), TOS Funerals is the success story of the Lagos State Government, it was the first PPP we had in Lagos State and that relationship is still thriving. I salute Mrs Taiwo Ogunsola’s spirit of entrepreneurship and CSR. It is truly worthy of commendation.”
In her closing remark, the Director of Hospital Administration, Mrs Olatokunbo Adio thanked Mrs Ogunsola for her generous donation to better the life of the hospital’s patients and the community at large.
Mrs Adio also thanked the representative of the Honourable Commissioner for Health and the Permanent Secretary Lagos State Ministry of Health, Dr Emmanuella Zamba for gracing the occasion.
