Giving a helping hand to a needy one is not only a responsibility but also an act of humanity that we show towards others, making a difference in their lives even with a little.
We have one world that is divided in two, on one side is people living their life in luxury while on the other side is people who can’t afford to live luxuriously, they have little or no food at all to eat to satisfaction,
Welcome to Downtown community, a small community in the city of Lagos Nigeria referred to as a slum where hundreds of people live in houses built with unwanted woods and old fashioned zincs, road filled with garbage as to coal-tar, children playing in the open bare footed and chested, and adults sitting under small trees in deep thoughts of where and how their next meal will emerge.
I believe everybody has equal rights to happiness no matter their situation and financial status, in view of this I wore my shoes of compassion and empathy and ran straight to the downtown community with my team members, my passion for helping people motivated me once more to outreach the community with OFAC , which is geared towards reaching out to kids in the low income communities and promoting zero hunger among kids.
I usually picture the smiles that’s been spread across the lips of the unclad children when they receive food items and it brings joy to my heart.
In summary, I’ll say life is a matter of privilege and it’s more meaningful if we live not only for ourselves but to help others, at OFAC the work we carry out makes a difference to the lives of many within the communities we live and work though little,
Join the train of sensitive people by considering to donate some portion of your money or food stuff by helping no child goes to sleep hungry and stopping the heart wrenching situations of kids suffering from hunger.
