The ongoing distribution of food palliative for the under privileged in the society by Dr Siju Iluyomade tagged ‘Arise Pink Bucket’ which commences in Lagos last year has moved to Abule-Egba, a community in Lagos State.
The team of Arise Women returned to Lagos for the distribution of the food basket after taking the palliatives to Ibadan, Oyo-State couple of weeks ago.
Residents of Abule-Egba and environs trooped out on Sunday, 3 April, 2022 with excitement around the Kofoworola Street in the community to get their pack of food palliatives even as many were seen pouring encomiums on the Convener of Arise Women, Dr Siju for always coming to their aid.
It will be recalled that the Arise team had sometime last year built a massive borehole for the people of the community to ease water shortage in the area.
The package which consist of couple of items like spaghetti, rice, tomato paste, groundnut oil among other items put together in a pink bucket, is now a regular activity of Dr Siju to reach out to lots of under privileged in the society in a bid to cushion the effect of strangled economy on many people.
Though distribution of the food basket started on 1st of December during Dr Iluyomade’s championed Handmaidens weekly event at the COD Redeemed Christian Church of God, Victoria Island, where people trooped in to pick up the ‘Arise Pink Bucket’ palliatives, it has moved to some local governments in Lagos State including Amuwo-Odofin, Lagos-Island as well as Ibadan in Oyo-State where it was distributed to lots of people.
Lots of women were seen on the streets of Abule-Egba in happy mood as they are holding on to their package, while also appraising the Convener, Dr Siju for deeming it worthy to come to their environment.
Over three million of ‘Arise Pink Buckets’ are expected to be distributed in many parts of the country in the next few weeks according to Dr Iluyomade.
