The Minister of Women Affairs and Social Development, Dame Pauline Tallen has donated food items to the Plateau State School for the Deaf located in Bassa.
The Minister made the gesture through the Beautiful Gate Handicapped People Center Jos to ameliorate the food challenge affecting the school.
Speaking during the presentation of the food items at the school premises, Chief Ayuba Burki Gufwan, the Director of Beautiful Gate Handicapped People Center extended Dame Tallen goodwill to the students, stating that the Minister as a mother is concerned about their welfare and well-being. He tasked the students to take their studies serious so as to make the Minister and other donors who have been assisting the school proud.
According to him, the Minister contacted him to take delivery of the items to the school as her modest contribution to the students who are writing their terminal exams and had been handicapped by food.
Principal of the School, Mrs Tabitha Silas appreciated Dame Tallen for her kind gesture, pledging the judicious use of the items. She applauded Chief Burki for his consistent show of love and support to the school.
John Davou, a student of school who could not hide his joy expressed gratitude on behalf of the students of the school, praying for God’s abundant blessings on the life of the donor and Chief Burki.
