Gov. Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu State, has directed that medical care and education be provided for inmates of Abandoned Children’s Home located at Family Support Programme (FSP) Medical Centre, Enugu.

Ugwuanyi gave the directive when he visited the centre on Wednesday to identify with the children and assess the on-going rehabilitation work being executed by a group, known as `Enugu Old Skoolz’ (EOS).

The governor directed that a resident physician and four staff be employed while burglary proof and mosquito nets be installed on the doors and windows of the home.

He also directed that power generating set should be provided for the children.

He directed that children, who had attained school age, should be enrolled into any government school of their choice at the expense of the government.

Ugwuanyi said that the gesture was part of his administration’s social responsibility and commitment to charity and welfare of the less privileged, especially abandoned children.

``After analyzing the condition of the abandoned children; I have instantly approved the provision of some basic needs for them.

``Children are the leaders of tomorrow and deserve to be given adequate care and attention for the benefit of human kind and the society in general.

``I appreciate the humanitarian efforts of the Enugu Old Skoolz group in rehabilitating the centre,’’ he said.

Earlier, the President of the group, Mr Chris Odili, expressed appreciation to the governor for his financial and moral support for the home.

He also lauded the governor for his commitment to the course of charity, which motivated the group to embark on the rehabilitation of the home.

Odili noted that the new look of the home would not have been achieved without his (governor’s) fatherly advice and assistance.

``The abandoned children home deserve the attention of every member of the society who appreciates their potentials as future leaders.

``I, however, appeal to the government to rename the home from Abandoned Children’s Home to Future Hope Children’s Home to reflect the expectations of the public for the inmates as leaders of tomorrow,’’ he appealed.
