The Rotary Club of Abuja, Maitama, yesterday donated N1.2m to a four-year-old cancer patient, Elizabeth Chineyenwa Nwokocha.

The donation was in form of N1,097,000 cheque and N107,000 cash.

Elizabeth, expected to undergo 24 sessions of chemotherapy, had had six before.

The Rotary Club raised funds for her care at the National Hospital, Abuja.

Speaking during the presentation, the president of the Rotary Club of Abuja Maitama, Rtn Yusuf Alli, said: “As part of our humanitarian focus, we decided to rally round Elizabeth because of the trauma she is going through and lack of funds to bear her burden by her parents.

“It’s our calling to save lives. For Elizabeth, we’ll do all we can to put her back on her feet. No kobo is too small or big to assist the needy like our little girl.

“If all Nigerians can lend helping hands to those disadvantaged, our society will be better.”

Chairperson on Empowering Girls, Rotary International District 9125, Rtn. Lovina Okon-Ntui, said: “We commend RC Abuja Maitama for accepting the challenge to assist Elizabeth who has been struggling to survive.”

The mother of the patient, Franscica Jecinta Nwokocha, said she was happy that the Rotary Club of Abuja Maitama intervened on time to save Elizabeth. “I had lost hope, but Rotarians have brought me joy.”

The girl’s father, Ikechukwu Justice Nwokocha, said he would forever be grateful to Rotary International for coming to the aid of his family.
