Speaking at the event which held on Saturday, July 6th 2019, the Chief Operating Officer, Mr. Joseph Baiyekusi said that the IYW day initiative was designed to impact communities and areas of operation across our ILC chapters as well as make significant contribution to society; “Leadership is not by position; it is by service. Nothing gives more joy than the opportunity to serve” he said.
In her welcome remarks; Mrs Odusote, Director of the Winiseph Care Home, at one of the elderly homes visited in Lagos, expressed her deepest appreciation and showered encomiums on the team’s laudable project. She emphasized on the challenges facing todays elderlies saying “aging comes with many challenges. The loss of independence, diminished physical ability, deteriorating health, and financial incapacity are the most common problems that senior citizens all over the world face today.”
