Ugwuanyi recruits staff for abandoned children’s home
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.
