“We, intended to present the items on Fathers’ Day .Due to time constraint we were not able to turn up on that very day.We just want to remember the poor, less – privileged, needy children and other vulnerable people in society who have been neglected in the society”, he noted.

This he said, Men of Integrity would continue to support the vulnerable with their resources on every Fathers’ Day in order to put a smile on the faces of the less- privileged in the country.

They also seized the opportunity to pray for the inmates, the Nurses and management of the Hospitals as well.

Senior Staff Nurse of Pantang Psychiatric Hospital Mr Aboni Samuel who received the items with joy on behalf of the hospital , expressed profound gratitude to Men of Integrity for embarking on such benevolent exercise.

This he said, the items donated will go a long way to enhance their service delivery and also compliment the effort of the government.

He appealed to other benevolent organizations to come to the aid of the Hospital, since the government alone could not shoulder the responsibility.Adding that, that the donation would be used for its intended purpose.

He therefore, cautioned all and sundry especially the youth to live well by staying away from cannabis and refined alcohol and not to bow to peer pressure.

Mr. Aboni, also advised families , and the general public to overturn the stigma associated with mental illness in the country and rather show love and care to persons suffering from mental illness.
