+ Govt should come to our aid, foundation cries out
The Resident Association of Ogun Properties Investment Corporation, Agbara Ladies (RAOPIC Ladies) has rallied support for the Lady Atinuke Oyindamola Memorial Home from government and well-meaning Nigerians. The group, which lamented the bad condition of the home for children with special needs, called for immediate intervention.
Founder of the orphanage, Mrs. Elsie Akerele, urged the state government to come to the aid of the home to avert more death among the kids, adding that about eight children died in the foundation last year due to congestion.
We are grateful to RAOPIC. Last year, they gave us cerebral palsy chairs; this has helped in correcting many of our children. Many of them can now sit, because they have gone through the support of these chairs. They are corrective chairs. This is the third year that they have been coming.”
