In line with the vision and mission of Life Support Network (LSN) to reach out to the less privileged, both young adult and children to have access to basic right in the country, the Non- Governmental Organisation (NGO), on Friday donated food items and relief materials to orphanage homes in eight states of the country.
The outreach took place in Oyo, Lagos, Ondo, Ogun, Niger, Edo, Delta States, as well as the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.
Speaking on the development, the Chief Executive Officer of LSN, ItunuOluwa Ajayi-Albert said the outreach was different from every other orphanage outreach they had ever embarked upon, adding that the title of the outreach is, Help Empowerment: “Lifting Lowly Orphanage.
She said: “We are reaching out specifically to orphanages across the country, especially those who do not have the privilege of luxury and government frequent donations.
“This is why we specifically picked orphanages that are small and have less visibility to the public and government, and who don’t enjoy the hand of help and comfort that is available to other luxurious orphanage homes.”
The Chief Executive Officer explained that the development is in line with LSN 2021 vision to reach the lowly orphanage home in the country.
She revealed that Life Support Network will embark on Feed A Thousand Project in April 2021, adding that the NGO will go out into the street to reach out to the vulnerable ones like women, children, widows among others to give them free food and support.
While appealing to spirited individuals, government and philanthropist to support LSN with funds to enable it to reach out to more vulnerable people across the country, Itunuoluwa said fund has been a major challenge in the outreach programmes.
“Some people have been supportive but we still need more support to enable us to do more in our outreach to help others.”
