National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) member, Dr. Esther Akpan, has built and donated a clinic to Adiadia community in Uruan Local Government of Akwa Ibom State.

Akpan, who is serving at the Nigeria Medical Association Clinic, also donated desks and sick bays to four schools in Uruan, as part of her community development service.

She told reporters in Uyo yesterday that she was motivated to make the donations because of dearth of health posts in schools in the local government.

The corps member lamented that pupils sit on the floor to receive lessons.

She said she had executed other life-impacting programmes, including de-worming of pupils of Government Primary School, Ibiaku, Issiet, liaising with the government for the provision of desks to primary schools, setting up sick bays at Adiaha Obong Secondary School, Ekpene Ukim and Methodist Secondary School, Ibiaku Issiet, conducting free treatment for adults and children at Adadia, donation of drugs to schools, among others.

Akpan said she was moved to take the steps because when she visited schools in Uruan Local Government, she realised none had a sick bay or First Aid Box.

The corps member, a graduate of Zaporozhye State Medical University, Ukraine, said her humanitarian gesture followed the favour she received while growing up.

Head of Adadia village Chief William Udobot, represented by Chief Essien Asuquo, thanked Dr. Akpan for initiating the project and bringing it to the community.

NYSC Coordinator Mr. Julius Amusan described Akpan as one of the outstanding corps members.

He said her achievements were a pride not only to her, but also to the corps.
