In wake of the devastating El Paso shooting on August 3, the Southwest Association of Nigerian Physicians (SANP) donated $15,000 to assist victims and families of those affected by the massacre.
In expressing condolence to the victims and their families, SANP President Dr. Emmanuel Anekwe said, “We in the SANP have made El Paso our home; we are a testament to the welcoming and loving nature of El Paso and we will do all in our power to ensure this sad event does not define El Paso.”
Members of the SANP presented the gift to the El Paso Community Foundation Shooting Victims’ Fund on Wednesday, August 28.
