As O-Onofe graduates...
We wish to thank everyone who supported and donated towards the education program of O-Onofe. Especially, Mrs. Ochonogor Tolulope and Mr. Odewale Olaniyi. Thank you so much for your unfeigned support .
O-Onofe who lost his single parent and father (financier) some weeks after gaining admission into the University in 2010, was one of our high school mentee in 2009.
He was one of the best graduating high school student from his school Education District and we were invited to attend his award giving ceremony held at Unilag. Also, he got a high JAMB score, then, which made JAMB to keep a close tab by calling his school administrators, to investigate and inquire about his academic history.
Despite all, he was undaunted in his aspiration to study Agricultural Science at the university.
Today, he graduates with a cumulative grade point of 4.16 from the Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta. (Formerly UNAAB).
In his words, he says...."I am so grateful to God and the people He used over the last five years...".
Heartily, we use this medium to thank everyone of you for your support, prayers and act of kindness towards the less privileged. Thank you for rekindling hope. Thank you for showing up when needed. God bless
She was only 7+years old.
She fell ill 2weeks ago.
Maybe, for lack of hospital in the community.
Maybe, for lack of adequate knowledge.
The parent resolved into spiritual intervention.
It must be a spiritual attack.
Mary couldn't move again.
Yesterday, Mary died in the church.
Where her parent had taken her to.
Today, I crrrriiieeed. Still tear-dropping.
I weep because we just lost a friend .
one of our coolest friends.
I weep for what ignorance could bring.
Last three years, we had a similar case where one of our girls was also 'abandoned' in the church for spiritual healing. She had her legs swollen as a result of the illness. It was a mild fracture, mama assured us. Everything would be fine. Haaa! Fracture? But this is not an hospital. Swiftly, with friends help, we got them moved to a hospital where it was diagnosed that our little friend had kidney problem. She spent more than 4months in the hospital! Today she is alive and in JSS 1.
