It was a mentoring session which borders on the importance of showing up. A session, with a difference! Thank you, Mrs. Olowu & Faloju for also visiting children at Helper's Academy. We love it when friends show up...Find attached Photographs for more updates :)
On the 14th day of December, there was the Pleasant surprise and Christmas gifts for all teachers at Helpers Academy!

It was a gift pack, with live Chicken! Photographs Attached.Thank you, Mr. F.Oloyede.
On the 15th day, we had Mrs. Tolu Onifade Babatunde, one of our pioneer supporter and friend. She was visiting us for the very first time, as most communications has been online. Once again, our appreciation to her. She showed up with her daughter to have fun with the children. Playing toys together etc. Thank you.

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.
