Some individuals who took the opportunity provided by Dr. Siju praised her for always intervening positively in any public health activity that benefits the downtrodden and general public.
According to one of the beneficiaries who was excited to have finally received her dose, Oluwayemisi Ekundayo. ” I really appreciate Dr. Siju for this opportunity, I have not been available for the previous one but I thank God I was able to make it this time around” Also, an American who married a Nigerian Mr. Trevor Keeney also took the injection. He has nothing but appreciation for the Convener of Arise women. He said ‘ Dr. Siju is a wonderful Nigerian that should be emulated by privileged people or organizations in the country to do more for people in my second home, which is Nigeria”
Participants on the day were also given free food as part of a method to make the exercise hitch-free.
