Rotary donates hospital equipment, wheelchair to less-privileged
Rotary Club of Festac Town, Lagos, has donated hospital equipment to Blessed Michael Iwene Tansi Clinic/Laboratory, Ezeowelle in Idemili North, Anambra State, as parts of the clubs’ activities/projects to help the less privileged in society.
The equipment included maternity delivery bed, with a climb, medical curtain, wheelchair reagents and drugs.
Speaking during the presentation of the equipment in Lagos, President of Rotary Club of Festac Town, Pantelion Ndubisi Onuoha, reiterated the Rotary’s spirit of giving and impacting positively on the lives of the less privileged in society, adding “We have adopted the clinic for our yearly projects. We will continue to support them in the years head.”
He explained that the interest in the hospital is because of its location in a rural community, where income levels are very low, saying the assistance is to spur the hospital to provide healthcare services to the less-privileged at affordable cost.
Onuoha, who was recently installed as the 36th president of the club, promised to make a difference in this Rotary year by moblising people and resources to touch lives and do good to the less-privileged.
Spokesperson of the clinic, Missionary Daughter of Blessed Michael Iwene Tansi, Grace Opara, thanked the club for standing solidly behind them.
She noted: “We do conduct free medical checks two times a year. We do free prostrate and high blood pressure tests during the year. We have helped many elderly people in our community, courtesy of Rotary Club of Festac Town. I want to thank you all because you have touched many lives.”
She urged the club to continue with the good works and prayed to God to replenish the club and its members.
Representative of the Mission, Emilia Maduewesi, also commended the club for being there for them all the time
“We started in the village and most lives have been saved. God will continue to bless each one of you,” she added.
