Former First Lady and founder of the Women and Youth Empowerment Foundation (WAYEF), Hajia Turai Yar’Adua, will, on Tuesday, in Abuja, donate medical equipment and consumable items to nine benefitting hospitals selected from around the country.
According to a letter by the coordinator of the programme, Maryam Umaru Yar’Adua, the event comes up at the office of the non-governmental and non-profit making body.
Hajia Turai Yar’Adua has concluded plans to construct a world-class cancer center along the airport road, Abuja before her spouse, the late President Umaru Musa Yar’Adua, passed on.
Tuesday’s event would be Hajiya Yar’Adua’s first public engagement after she went with the body of her late husband from the Presidential Villa, Aso Rock on 5 May, last year to their Katsina residence for burial.
