The Rotary Club of Jos Central has unveiled some of its projects, including kitting of 30 pupils of LEA Primary School, Kufang, Jos South Local Council area of the state.
The event which was also the investiture of the Club’s President Iyke Ofoegbu, took place on Saturday in Jos.
The event included the handing over of 8 wheelchairs to physically challenged persons in Jos.
Mr Kayode Fashua, President-elect of Rotary Club Jos Central who spoke to NAN on the sidelines of the event, said watching the joy from the recipients made them feel fulfilled.
“Of course, this makes us feel fulfilled, because it’s part of what we are here to do.
“Rotary Club is all about service to humanity, It’s about identifying the less privileged and meeting their needs as much as we can.
“We can’t leave everything to government, from the little that we have from ourselves, as club members, we identify key areas of focus of Rotary and we attend to them,” he said.
Mrs David Garos, headteacher of the School, thanked the club for its magnanimity towards the school, adding that the children were elated about their new look and writing materials.
She added that this would motivate them to do better in their academics.
Some of the recipients, 11-year old Emmanuel David and Plangnan Tokpan primary 4 pupils of the school, expressed gratitude to the association for the support.
They promised to put in their best to make the club proud for supporting them.
Similarly 28-year old Munir Iliya, a physically Challenged man who spoke on behalf of other recipients of the wheel chairs, thanked the association and prayed that God replenished what they had used.
Mr Ikey Ofoegbu, the newly-inaugurated President of the Association, thanked the association for its support and promised to continue to push the good works that the club was known for.
