Rotary Club in partnership with the Latter Days Saints has commissioned Okwelle I Primary Health care Centre buildings in Onuimo LGA of Imo state renovated and fully equipped with the state of the art facilities.

The official opening of the blocks took place on Saturday and attracted the presence of the Traditional Ruler of Okwelle Ancient Kingdom, His Royal Highness Eze Iheji, Ekweariri II, the Interim Management Committee chairman of Onuimo LGA, Hon. Charles Ijezie represented by the DAGS, Chidi Okere as well as the Executive Secretary of Imo state Primary Health Care, Perry Njoku.

In his opening remarks, the President of Ikenegbu chapter of the club, RTN Tochi Richards said that Rotary Club has come a long way and is gradually extending humanitarian services to all parts of the country.

According to him, the newly commissioned buildings were the second in the state undertaken by the Club after the one in Atta community built a couple of years back.

“When we came, we met totally dilapidated blocks which were worse than a piggery site. The place was overgrown with grasses and there was no toilet facility and running water. It was horrible.

“No one could have imagined saving a life in such a deplorable condition. We took it upon ourselves. God so kind, the Latter Days Saints being a backbone to this noble project, we were able to arrive at this.

“The Centre is well equipped and upgraded. You can now see that people are trooping in for medical attention. Our club has contacted the member representing Onuimo state constituency in Imo House of Assembly, Hon. Paul Emeziem and he has promised to sink a water borehole here within two weeks.

“This is part of our services to God and humanity. We help the government in building the nation. Rotary club is a non political, non-partisan and non-religious group. The door is also open for intending members

“We thank all of you who in one way or the other contributed to the success of this project and we urge the management to leverage on the opportunity to better a lot of the people,” he concluded.

Cutting the ribbon, the District Governor-elect in charge of Southeast states, RTN Ndukwe Chukwu prayed for God’s continued blessings and more noble projects.

In his contribution, the Interim Management Committee chairman of Onuimo, Hon. Charles Ijezie ably represented by the LGA DAGS, RTN Chidi Okere pledged the council’s unalloyed support for the club, urging it to keep on the tempo.

He expressed delight that the people of Okwelle especially the pregnant woman will no longer be travelling far to getting medical treatment, promising to provide adequate security to protect the workers.

The highpoint of the event was the distribution of drugs provided by the club to the people and an award of honour on the representative of Latter Days Saints, Bishop Eze Igwe.
