Rotary Club of Bauchi Central district and three other foundations, Heart That Truly Cares (HTTC), Alwadata Lifeline Initiative (ALLI) and ASHH Foundation, yesterday paid fines to secure the release of 21 inmates from the Bauchi Correctional Centre.
Speaking shortly after the presentation of some items, president of Rotary Club of Bauchi Central district, Rotarian Pam Dauda said that the club collaborated with the foundations and was able to raise the amount spent for the payment of the fines as well as the purchase of the items donated to the inmates.
He stressed that Rotary Club as a humanitarian organisation is interested in the wellbeing and peace of the people, the more reason it collaborates with like-minded organisations to better the lives of the people.
The executive director of Heart That Truly Cares (HTTC), Josephine Ibinola said they spent over N700,000 to settle the fines apart from the other items brought for the inmates to make life at the correctional centre bearable for them.
“We discovered during our visits before today that some of the inmates can become better people outside the walls of the correctional house. We then decided to pay the various fines for 21 of them,” she stated.
She added that the collaboration was a success because all of them are Rotarians hence it was very easy for them to bond together in the service of humanity which is the cardinal service of Rotary Club all over the world.
