—How Poor Nigeria’s Health System killed a Young female Philanthropist, Kaffy Harbdul

YBTC News—Kafayat Abdulazeez, 25 years old Muslim lady was not feeling too fine on Valentine’s Day, Thursday, February 14, 2019. She left for Asokoro General Hospital, Abuja, where she was admitted, and the doctors diagnosed that she had pneumonia.

After the initial treatment she regained her strength. But painfully, the following day, Friday, her situation became worse and the hospital was no longer as responsive as they were supposed to be.

Miss Kafayat would have been alive today if her treatment was taken seriously at Asokoro General Hospital, Abuja.

A patient in the hospital had to place a call to doctors and kept begging on her behalf just to be treated, but all efforts proved abortive.

A lady who impacted communities and the less privileged. She had a lineup of community projects for this month under her foundation, Al-imran Islamic foundation. So many indigent people depended on her to put a smile on their faces. She is also a volunteer with Devatop Centre for Africa Development and Project Pink Blue and more....
