“I urge you to rather stand out and be the best you can at school and contribute to the growth of the society at large,” she said.

Mrs Hannah Omeiza, the founder of the orphanage, lauded the members of club for their visit and the donation to the home.

Omeiza also prayed that God would replenish and restore the club’s members for their gesture.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that after the donation, members of the club proceeded to St. Leo’s Catholic Church Hall for an exclusive party to round-off the event.
