He said: ‘’At Rotary Club of Ikeja, we always extend our love and support to the indigent children and the hospital, especially during Christmas. We celebrate in our different homes, but we should also extend such celebrations to the indigent and disadvantaged, which has become a tradition in our club.
‘’LASUTH has also become one of our star projects and year in, year out, we donate medical equipment to the hospital to demonstrate our commitment and compassion to ensuring that in every sphere of the society, we continue to take action to create lasting impacts in our communities.”
