Today is a day specially carved out by the Klub as a humanitarian service day, that is the day we give back to the society. The theme for this year's celebration is 'inspiring help across the world'. Just as you witnessed, we were at holy innocent motherless babies home, Onu-Ebonyi where we donated some items.We were also at St Vincent old people's home where we donated  3bags of rice, 2bags of garri, 1bag of beans, 20 tubers of yam, 52pieces of tablet soap and 30 plastic buckets.
It just our way of giving back to the society. Every 15th of October every year, we reach out. Last year were at federal teaching hospital where we paid bills of indigent patient who were cured but couldn't pay. By special Grace of God next we will extend this to the people in prison".

For whatever reason they found themselves here, you people have made this place a home for them and in our own little way, we decided to extend hands of help. We have come with just a token, a bag of rice, a bag of garri ten cartons of indomie, a carton of detergent, five packs of different sizes of Pampers, tablet soap and rolls of tissues and 30 plastic buckets. Just to support the service you people has been rendering", he concluded.
