Chairman of the Prince Ned Nwoko Foundation Hon. Ned Nwoko and his wife, Regina Daniels, have reached out to orphaned children in Abuja as the lockdown over the coronavirus pandemic continues. They both visited three orphanages in the Federal Capital Territory Abuja, where they donated foodstuff and cash. Items donated include bags of rice, garri, detergent, spaghetti, vegetable oil, noodles, beverages, napkins, toiletries among others.
The orphanages visited are Destined Children’s Orphanage in Kado, Heritage Home Orphanage in Gwarinpa and Hope for Survival Orphanage in Maitama Extension.
While the first two orphanages were promised a monthly subvention of N500,000 by Prince Ned Nwoko, the third orphanage was given N1million on the spot as a result of more number of kids in the facility totalling 69.
“The reality of the current lockdown is that many are going to bed hungry every night, but not these babies, not these kids. They will have something to eat tonight and beyond the lockdown,” Nwoko told journalists after donating the items.
It is also worthy to note that the Philanthropist, through his foundation, is currently embarking on a mission to eradicate malaria not just Nigeria but the entire continent of Africa.
