NGO distributes items to orphans, widows in Auchi


EDO-A Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO), the Hallmark Advocacy, on Thursday distributed food items and other materials to orphans and widows in Jattu-Uzairue in the Etsako-West Local Government Area of Edo.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the items distributed included bags of rice and beans, mattresses, stationeries, clothing, shoes, toiletries and provisions.
Speaking during the donation, the founder of the NGO, Mr Mike Aliu, urged well-meaning Nigerians to assist in catering for the less-privileged in the society.
“Nigeria gives little attention to the less privileged and this set of people require much attention.
“As a philanthropist, I deem it fit to help the orphans and the widows by helping to meet their needs,’’ Aliu said.
He said that he was passionate about making a positive impact on people and the society as a whole, adding that this gesture originated from his concern for the less-privileged in the society.
The Ogieneni of Uzairue, Chief Kadiri Imonikhe, responded by thanking the charitable organization, for coming to the aid of the orphans and widows in the area.
Imonikhe urged other eminent sons and daughters of the community to emulate Mr Aliu.
Some of the beneficiaries also thanked the Hallmark Advocacy founder and wished him well in his endeavours. (NAN)
