“Members of the the foundation came out enmasse to put smiles on the faces of the very old, sick and poor who could barely provide for themselves and family this festive season,as they distributed food items,toiletries and clothings.
The convener of the initiative,Risikat Adisa, said they are engaging in this activities in order to advance social and economic well being of the people.
Adisa stated that “ Nothing is as soothing as when the very old prays for you as most of them expressed their gratitude in prayers.
“From the king’s palace hall,we moved around the kingdom down to the orphanage, Free The child Orphanage (FTC),the gestures was nothing less than the former.
“We made sure that the needy has a reason to celebrate this festive season.
“My daily mission is simple: to put food on the tables of our hungry neighbours and get more people out of poverty and problems. Giving is not determined by how much you have but how much your heart truly desires to sacrifice.
“The full extent of the problem of hunger is not obvious to most of us. We only see the homeless, but there are a great number of working poor, struggling to survive, who don’t have enough money to put adequate food on the table. We must find a solution to this ever-increasing problem and solve it.
Adisa urged Nigerians to imbibe the spirit of being a blessing to others by charting a good positive course. A lot of people need help,food is the major challenge at the moment,we should share with families around us thank u.
She added that the foundation is compassionate about catering for the needy, noticing the pains widows pass through after death of their husbands.
