Agbara Women Donate, Seek Urgent Intervention For Orphanage (PHOTOS)

+ 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.

President of the group, Mrs. Kuti Serifat Olubunmi, stated this during a humanitarian visit by members to donate goods worth hundred of thousands of naira to the orphanage to mark Nigeria’s 59th independence anniversary.She said: “The orphanage is one in a million. The condition and standard of living in that place calls for immediate assistance from government, individuals and corporate organizations. They need a lot of things. We have come to do our bit; others need to follow the same footsteps. There is no need to amass wealth to the fourth generation when we can help our neighbours and less privileged around us. The home needs a conducive atmosphere for children, especially children with special needs.”

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.”
