Prince Harry visits Kaduna military hospital to Support Wounded Soldiers

During his visit to Kaduna State, the Duke of Sussex, Prince Harry, extended his support to wounded and injured Nigerian soldiers at the 44 Nigerian Army Reference Hospital. Accompanied by his wife, Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, Prince Harry was warmly welcomed by Governor Uba Sani, who presented him with traditional Hausa attire and cherished photo frames capturing moments with his late mother, Princess Diana, and his wife.

 

The royal couple’s visit to Nigeria aimed to raise awareness for the Invictus Games, an initiative founded by Prince Harry to aid in the rehabilitation of wounded and sick service members and veterans, including Nigerian soldiers engaged in a prolonged conflict against extremist groups.

Prince Harry’s tour of the hospital, alongside Chief Medical Director Col. NS Onuchukwu, showcased the facility’s advanced amenities, including a cutting-edge prosthetics lab generously donated by Germany. This lab has revolutionized on-site prosthetic fittings, providing state-of-the-art replacements for individuals who have suffered limb loss.

 

Interacting with approximately 50 courageous soldiers across two wards, Prince Harry listened to their stories of service and sacrifice, offering words of encouragement and wishing them a speedy recovery. Meeting individuals he had encountered at previous Invictus Games events, Prince Harry witnessed firsthand the resilience and determination of these servicemen and women, serving as a beacon of hope for their journey to recovery.

The report partly read, “Designed to help wounded servicemen and women recover after injury, the hospital includes a leading physiotherapy gym and a high-tech prosthetics lab which offers state-of-the-art replacements to those who have lost limbs – a donation offered by Germany that has been transformational for on-site prosthetic fittings.

 

“Prince Harry met up with around 50 courageous soldiers across two wards, hearing about their stories of service and sacrifice and wishing them all a speedy recovery. Two of the men he had seen at last year’s Invictus Games, and their smiles were a reminder of what they’d seen was possible post-injury.”

 

The report also added that Prince Harry “was especially pleased to be able to congratulate Princess Owowoh in person since her graduation from The Royal Military Academy Sandhurst.”
