Always aiming to put smiles on the face of inhabitants, Members of Ikorodu Pioneer Virtual Lions Club touched down at Ikorodu Senior Grammar School on the 4th of March 2023.
Led by the club’s President, Lion (Dr) Bola Shogbesan, the organisation, fondly known to alleviate hunger, directed its service towards empowering female students of the institution.
In orientating and supporting the girl child, the Club provided over 100 sanitary pads for senior female students of the school, seizing the medium to also enlighten them on how to keep their bodies neat and prevent themselves from illnesses.
Before distributing the pads to the students, the club was warmly received by Mrs A.O Adeyemi, Principal of the school, who lauded the team for making out time to cater to the growing number of female students and educating them to become responsible women in the future.
Mrs Adeyemi also told the club to continue in their act of kindness and generosity, asserting that only God can reward their continuous efforts to improve humanity.
Speaking to the students afterwards, Lion (Dr) Bola Shogbesan, the Club’s President, notified them to preserve their neatness even when they go through their normal menstrual cycle.
Explaining that even though some parents do not have enough money to buy pads for their children, which results in using napkins, she said constant washing of their personal belongings will help them to live a healthy life.
She proceeded, “Pads are absorbent materials that attach to the inside of a girl’s underwear and catch menstrual blood“.
“It is disposable, with arms to manage menstruation and maintain menstrual health” she added
Furthermore, Lion Shogbesan concluded by indicating that the club provided free sanitary pads for the students, as a form of reminder for them to always take their health seriously and avoid infections of all sought.
Dignified By Grace, a London Based Foundation, convened by Mrs Temi Koleowo procured the sanitary pads for the Club which more than 100 students benefited from.
Former Ikorodu Pioneer Virtual Lions Club Presidents, Lion Adeola Rotinwa NLCF, and Lion Princess Adebukola Adefolayiga NLCF were also present to execute the project.
