An Abuja-based nongovernmental organisation (NGO), Helpline Foundation for the Needy, has pledged to collaborate with Rotary Club in the nation’s capital to build and equip a modern primary healthcare facility at Sabon-Lugbe community in Abuja Municipal Area Council (AMAC).
Speaking after being presented an award as a fellow of the club in Abuja, the Founder/Chief Executive Officer of the foundation, Dr (Mrs.) Jumai Ahmadu, stated that the NGO will support the project since it would improve the health status of rural dwellers, especially women.
Ahmadu observed that many women in rural communities die as a result
of some avoidable sicknesses, adding that more efforts must be put in place to bring to an end this problem and save more life.
She stressed the need for Nigerians to continue to support and assist the needy and the less privileged persons in their midst, no matter how small, adding that as little as N2,000 can make a big difference in the life of the vulnerable persons.
“Growing up as a youth, I had this believe that there is nobody that is too poor to give and there is nothing that is too small to give. That is my motivating factor and that is why I do the little I can to help people. And I am glad that this is the philosophy of the Rotary Club.”
