History was made in Enugu on the 30th of March 2017, when the prestigious and one of the most sort after awards – the Margarette Golding Award of the International Inner Wheel Clubs – which affirms the highest form of selfless service and personal sacrifice to humanity, was bestowed on Lady Pharmacist Ifeoma Atuegwu, the initiator and founder of the not for profit organisation Bina Foundation. Her NGO focuses on people with special needs. This award is one of the highest forms of honour given to persons by the International Inner Wheel Clubs, worldwide.

Lady Atuegwu’s certificate was presented to her by President of the International Inner Wheel Clubs, Mrs. Oluyemisi Alatise, who happens to be the first African and a Nigerian to emerge as the president of this global initiative since inception. In February 2017, the National representative of the clubs in Nigeria Mrs. Uche Agbim played host to Mrs. Alatise, during the club’s 30th National Rally in Enugu.

It was during this visit of Mrs. Alatise that the charity works of Bina Foundation towards people with physical challenges and special needs were seen first-hand by the president, which inspired her recommendation for this highest honour. It was after this victorious resolution at the highest decision making body that Lady Atuegwu emerged as the 5th Nigerian to join the list of 200 distinguished personalities worldwide who have bagged this meritorious Margarette Golding Award. [Continue]
