Gbani Foundation, an Ogun State- based non-profit philanthropic organization, over the weekend visited the popular Hearts of Gold Children’s Hospice in Lagos.
The foundation donated cash, food and relief items in large quantity to the Palliative and respite facility for abandoned children with mental and physical disabilities
Founder, Gbani Foundation, Mrs. Oreoluwa Opatimehin explained that the motivation behind the outreach is that she believes everyone should have a reason to live, as every life is important and deserves better.
She said the recipients of the foundation’s gesture totally deserved it, adding that it only further underscores their commitment to helping the needy and less privileged in the society.
Her words : “We are here to reach out to the children under the care of this facility. We have gone round to see them and I daresay we were touched. There’s no act of kindness that is too much for these kids. They deserve all the love, care and help they can possibly get.”
Continuing, she said “It is our own belief that everyone should have a reason to live, abandoned children, the less privileged, particularly those living with physical and or mental disabilities. Asides the cash we gave the home, we have also provided and made available food items, beverages, and other support materials for home use.
She however pledged that the foundation would stay true to helping the needy and seemingly hopeless people in the society as this would go a long way in making the world a happy, better and conducive abode for all and sundry.
