About 100 students of Mount Olivet Grammar Olivet School, Bodija, Ibadan, have received free supplements from Longrich International.
The donation was facilitated by Mrs Modupe Kolade, an alumna of the school and member of ‘Team Awesome,’ a group with Longrich Bioscience International.
Kolade said the donation was part of the team’s drive to help with the health of children across the country.
She said: “We are motivated by the need to give back to society. I am here today to give back to my alma mater. While I’m here, other members of the team have gone to give back to their schools.
“I left this school 40 years ago and I am back to give back to the school. Right now, we are targeting 100 students per school. And we are presenting them with Longrich Calcium, an organic four-in-one product that contains components such as calcium, magnesium, zinc and iron. These components are essential vitamins in the formation of bones, teeth and blood. They also help to prevent arthritis.
“We have sensitised the students about their health and encouraged them to take the crusade to their parents. Mere looking at the children, you will see some of the physical health challenges that they have. Some of them have broken teeth, loose dentition, while some are wobbly. I’ll go back to the team, led by Mrs Adebisi Kuforiji to see how we can help improve on this. This is not a one-off drive, we will keep assisting in this regard but we can’t do it all.”
Principal of the school, Mrs Omowunmi Ogunrotimi, appreciated ‘Team Awesome’ for the donation stating that the supplements will help boost the children’s energy and rejuvenate them when used appropriately.
