NIGERIA’S 63rd independent anniversary turned out great for Bethorey Home for Challenged Persons as Ultimate Circle of Nigeria (UCN) reached out to the charity in Lagos in celebration of the National Day.
UCN, one of Nigeria’s leading socio-philanthropic family clubs, did this as part of its dedicated activities in marking this year’s nation’s independence, when its members paid a scheduled visit to the home to celebrate the anniversary with inmates and the special workers.
Representing UCN president Hon. Lukman Olumoh, his predecessor Adelaja Adeleye, who led members to the home, commended the challenged residents of the home for staying happy and praising God not withstanding the conditions they have found themselves in.
Said he: “That you all remember to celebrate Nigeria, even in your challenged positions, calls for more reason to celebrate with you.”
Corporate social responsibility
Adelaja who presented the home with a UCN cheque of N250,000 among other gifts, including food items, beverages and toiletries, advised the administrators of the home to phantom ways by which they could reach out to more organisations which may wish to include the Bethorey home in their yearly corporate social responsibility activities.
Adeleye commended all the workers of the home for their dedication, perseverance and passion with which they exemplify love and thoughtfulness in taking care of the needs of the inmates of the home.
Prayed he: “As you dedicate your time and energy in showing love to, and taking care of these needy ones, God Almighty will surely take care of your needs.”
He assured the home of UCN’s continued support as the home had been adopted by the club many years back.
Persistent support
Earlier in her welcome address, the Bethorey Home administrator Mrs. Tayo Udoh, thanked the UCN for its “unrepentant” and persistent support for the home.
She commended UCN for always coming to the aid of the home at all times and also lending the shoulders of the club to the home to lean on.
Mrs. Udoh appealed to the UCN for continued and more support particularly from friends of the club to help the home attain international standard.
Other members of UCN in the delegation included Segun Owokade, Sunkanmi Ologundudu, Bernard Eboreime and Adegboyega Ogunosun.
