Enugu State Gov­er­nor Ifeanyi Ug­wuanyi yes­ter­day ap­proved some ba­sic needs of the in­mates of an aban­doned chil­dren’s home at the FSP Med­i­cal Cen­tre in Enugu, as part of his ad­min­is­tra­tion’s so­cial re­spon­si­bil­ity and com­mit­ment to char­ity.

Gov­er­nor Ug­wuanyi who vis­ited the cen­tre to in­ter­act with the in­mates and as­sess the on-go­ing re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion work at the place, ap­proved the re­cruit­ment of a res­i­dent physi­cian for proper med­i­cal at­ten­tion.

Also, the gov­er­nor ap­proved the em­ploy­ment of four staff for the care of the gen­eral wel­fare of the chil­dren and gave di­rec­tives for the en­rol­ment of the in­mates who have at­tained the age of school­ing into any gov­ern­ment school of their choice at the ex­pense of the gov­ern­ment.

He de­scribed the chil­dren as the lead­ers of to­mor­row, stress­ing that they de­served to be given ad­e­quate care for the ben­e­fit of mankind.

Ear­lier in his speech, the Pres­i­dent of Enugu Old Skoolz group, Mr. Chris Odili, ex­pressed grat­i­tude to the gov­er­nor for his fi­nan­cial and moral sup­port as well as his sense of di­rec­tion towards the ex­er­cise of char­ity, which he said in­spired them to em­bark on the re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion of the home.

Odili stated that the aban­doned chil­dren de­served the at­ten­tion of ev­ery mem­ber of the so­ci­ety who ap­pre­ci­ates their po­ten­tials as fu­ture lead­ers, ap­peal­ing to the gov­ern­ment to re­name the home from Aban­doned Chil­dren’s Home to Fu­ture Hope Chil­dren’s Home to re­flect the ex­pec­ta­tions of the public for the in­mates as lead­ers of to­mor­row.
