A Chinese company, KEDI Healthcare, on Tuesday donated learning and feeding materials worth millions of naira to Bauchi state Orphans and Vulnerable Children Agency, BASOVCA, to alleviate the sufferings of children in the orphanage.
Anthony Yongo, Manger, KEDI Healthcare in Bauchi, said that the donation was part of an outreach by the healthcare and a deliberate effort to contribute towards providing basic education to children in the state.
According to him, the gesture is part of the annual social responsibility programmes of the organisation for children in the state.
“This year we selected the orphanage home to provide orphans with incentives such as learning and feeding items.
Hassana Arkila, Chairperson, BASOVCA, commended the organisation for the gesture, describing it as a great move to bring succour to the orphanage.
She said that the learning materials would compliment government’s efforts in providing basic education for the children.
The officer commended KEDI Healthcare for identifying with them by bringing donations and describing it as a great service not only to the children but to the immediate society and humanity in general.
Mr Arkila said that the present administration was focused on giving adequate education and care to the orphanage to ensure that the children were well placed in the society.
She said Bauchi State Government had launched a Strategic Development Plan, SDP, for Orphans and Vulnerable Children, OVC, activities in the state to ensure a better future for them.
