Children of Beth Torrey Home, which is home for mentally challenged children in Amuwo, Festac, Lagos were short of words to express their gratitude to the Rotary Club of Festac Town for meeting their basic needs comprising drugs and treated mosquito nets among others.

The club also donated four computers, three printers to Coker Senior Secondary School, Orile. The club members were led by the president, Alexander C. Geonlebedum, in company of the visiting District Governor, District 9110, comprising Lagos and Ogun States, Otunba Bola Onabadejo, to the orphanage.

Administrator of the home, Mrs. Tayo Udoh, appreciated the club for the gesture. “Through the club, we have been able to equip many offices, including the physiotherapy room.”

The District Governor commended the club for their donations to the mentally challenged home and the school. “What interested me most was that this club went to the home and demanded for what they actually needed and they met that need. They did not just give them anything.

“We have just witnessed another donation of computers and printers to Coker Senior Secondary School, Orile, impacting positively in the future of these children who are the future of tomorrow. This falls under an important aspect of Rotary Foundation, which is basic education and literacy. I am impressed with what I have seen so far, which is in tandem with our theme for this year: ‘Be a gift to the world.’”

Principal of Coker Senior Secondary School, Mrs. Yemisi Rhoda Adepoju, thanked the club and promised to use the computers for the benefit of the students. She also promised to establish a Rotaract Club in the school.
