Lynx 95 Giving Back with a Large Heart

Graduates of University of Nigeria, Enugu Campus Medical School, notably the Class of 1995 nicknamed ‘Lynx ’95 ‘ have returned to their alma mater to feed the fingers that once fed them.

Having travelled far and wide across their respective destinations and medical callings, ‘Lynx ’95’ has donated a 40 KVA Solar-powered system to the new 120-room Medical Students’ Hostel, apart from renovating the Lecture Theatre at Ituku Ozalla being the new site of the University of Nigeria Teaching Hospital, UNTH.

The renovation works at UNTH by Lynx ’95 included changing of the roof, ceilings, broken windows; refurbishing of electrical fittings and fixtures; repainting of the edifice; repairing of plumbing works, and installation of an overhead water tank.

The official hand-over of the donations and rehabilitation took place at UNTH on Friday, August 5, 2016; with high ranking academics from the Ivory Tower in attendance. Professor Ernest Onwasigwe, Provost of the Faculty of Health Sciences including Professors Ezegui Hyginus and Uchenna Nwagha being Dean and immediate past Dean both of the College of Medicine were on hand to grace the occasion.

The Lynx ’95-powered event coincided with the Re-Union Week with activities including Morning Walk, Heart-Healthy Breakfast, Visit to Charity and Motherless Babies Home and Mentoring for Final Year Medical Students. The week-long event was capped with a Re-Union Dinner and an interdenominational thanksgiving service on Sunday, August 7, 2016.

For Lynx ’95 to have given their widow’s mites at this time underscores Malcolm Bane’s philosophy: “If you wait until you can do everything for everybody, instead of something for somebody, you will end up doing nothing for nobody”.
