After some weeks of being off-air due to social distancing protocol to prevent COVID-19 spread, “Touch A Cell with Toyin and the Gang” returned to the radio on Wednesday 8th of July. The programme sponsored through the small grant programme of the Public Affairs Service of the US consulate is an interactive edutainment series. It aims to educate people with the sickle cell disorder and families on, their rights, responsibilities and obligations thereby giving them a voice so as to help foster healthy relationships between the health personnel and people with sickle cell disorder.
Incidentally, our return was also the day of celebration of SAMI’s 12th year anniversary so the show was agog with excitement. Presented live on the show were gang members including Lanre Olayokun, Yomi Oyelami and Maureen Nwachi. The ED, Toyin Adesola also called in live to reminisce on the humble beginnings of the organization. She recalled that it started with the review of her autobiography ‘Still Standing’ on Funmi Iyanda’s New Dawn television show on NTA.
The members of the crew present in the Star 101.5FM studio also shared glowing experiences of how they first came in contact with the vision of SAMI.
To listen to the Touch a Cell sho, stay tuned to the educative health program every Wednesday at 7.00 pm. The show also runs concurrently with an online version at 7.30 pm
