The Edo State Government has graciously approved funds for the welfare of persons suffering mental disorders undergoing treatment and rehabilitated at the Omon Oleabhiele Herbal Healing Home.

Presenting the approved funds to the Manager of Omon Oleabhiele Herbal Healing Home, the Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Social Development and Gender Issues, Mrs. Barbara N. Osobajo, said “it’s in recognition of the good work you have been doing in taking care of mentally ill persons in the State that justified the memo raised by the Ministry to His Excellency, Governor Godwin Obaseki, and was graciously approved as encouragement for you, to continue the good work and support in moving the state forward”.

Mrs. Osobajo added: “No society wants to lose its citizens so this financial support is to encourage you to rehabilitate persons living with mental disorder as citizens of Edo State because the Ministry will reintegrate them into the society and we need them whole and sound for them to be able to be productive for Edo State.”

She expressed government’s gratitude for all the services rendered over the years.

On his part, the Manager of Omon-Oleabhiele Herbal Healing Home, Dr. Jude Omon-Oleabhiele, thanked the Governor for recognizing their efforts in the treatment and rehabilitation of persons living with mental disorders and further thanked the Staff of the Ministry of Social Development and Gender Issues for the selfless services being rendered to humanity.
