As Nigerians join the rest of the world to commemorate this year’s World Orphans Day, a non-governmental organisation, NGO, Chadash Empowerment Foundation, has provided succour for orphans in the Federal Capital Territory with relief materials.
In a bid to show compassion towards the less privileged, the Chadash Empowerment Foundation, donated food items and materials to orphanage homes in the Darlez Orphanage Home in Area 8, Abuja, the Adorable Angles’ Orphanage Home, in Lugbe, Abuja. The Foundation went further to build and commission a borehole flowing with fresh water for the Adorable Angels’ orphanage home in Lugbe.
Fielding questions from journalists on what prompted her to make kind donations to orphanage homes, the Founder, Chadash Empowerment Foundation, Mrs. Temitope Adeola, said she was moved with compassion as to the lack of love extended towards orphanage homes and orphans generally.
This was as she called on well-meaning Nigerians to join the race in providing solace and succour for several millions of orphans in Nigeria.
She said, “We’ve been in existence since 2004, what we do basically is to help the widows and orphans. Today being the world orphans day, we decided to celebrate it with the people of Adorable homes and Darlez orphanage homes.
On his part, the Pastor-in-charge of the Adorable Angles Orphanage Homes, Pastor James Onu, appreciated the effort of the Foundation in showing love and kindness.
He said, “Today we are so excited, of course today is World Orphans Day, we want to thank God for the foundation that have come to help us with what we do by supporting us in diverse areas today. I’m happy about everything.”
In the same vein, he called on Nigerians to emulate what they(Chadash Empowerment Foundation) did by helping the orphanage homes. “In anyway you can, help to add to the value of lives and rekindle hope to the hopeless in Nigeria.
