The Southeast Zone Nigeria of De Norsemen Kclub International, a renowned global charity organization, has commenced the disbursement of monetary palliatives to its members and widows of members to cushion the adverse effects of the lockdown response to the Coronavirus, COVID-19 pandemic devastating mankind.
In a statement by the Director, Southeast Zone Nigeria of De Norsemen Kclub International, Comrade Okenwa Uka, he said the zone is compassionately motivated to “cue into the giant strides of the International President of the Kclub in his desire to consider and ameliorate the suffering and hardship of members as a result of the difficult fallouts of COVID-19 pandemic.
As a humanitarian organization, we are poised to give succour to our members and their families.”
Over one hundred members and some widows of members equally drawn from the five Southeastern states through very unbiased internal mechanism, are slated to benefit. Also slated to benefit from this rare act of charity are some members from Abuja and Lagos regarded as the epicenter of the pandemic in Nigeria.
The farsighted and very creative Director mentioned that the huge fund for this laudable project was generated through the philanthropic donation of members who are financially better “through massive consultation, appeal and reaching out by the leadership of the zone.”
He expressed gratitude to God for the inspiration and thanked the International President for his support. He appreciated all donors who despite the business lockdowns and restrictions, were generous in donating to the course. He also applauded the Southeast Stakeholders for standing strongly for the project. He advised that every Norseman should learn the leadership skills and the tenacity of the International President in upholding the motto of the organization which is “service to humanity”.
Reacting to the humanitarian project of the Southeast Zone, the International President of De Norsemen Kclub International, Chief Dr Adeshola Giwa, commended the gigantic efforts of the Southeast Director in uplifting the spirits of members and widows of members of the Kclub through this profound act of charity.
“This project massively blends into the humanitarian standard of the Kclub. This time, we are looking inwards and it is highly commendable.
“The 2.0 Next Level Leadership preaches love and brotherhood. I am particularly impressed that our vision is being driven to greater heights by people like the Southeast Director.”
He called on other Zonal Directors to embark on programmes and initiatives that would help members and their dependants to withstand the unsavory effects of COVID-19 lockdown. “We can’t go down and we can’t deviate from our humanitarian services. Other zones should emulate this great move and let our people smile”, he said.
It will be recalled that many state chapters of De Norsemen Kclub International have embarked on so many internal and external charity programmes to reduce the sufferings of members and nonmembers as a result of the pains associated with COVID-19 prevention and eradication policies.
