A support group for the president-elect, Asiwaju Project Beyond 2023, has donated food items to Halal Children’s Home II, an Orphanage in Abuja to celebrate President-elect, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
The group visited the children’s home located at Brains &Hammers Estate and donated bags of rice, cartons of spaghetti, noodles, toiletries and other items.
Speaking during the visit, the Director-General of the group, Barr Rilwan Okpanachi, said the group decided to celebrate the president-elect’s birthday by visiting orphanages and breaking fast with the less privileged.
According to him, the gesture was carried out not only in Abuja but in other parts of the country, saying they have been doing it for years.
“What is happening today is happening across all the geopolitical zones. We started since yesterday and we are still going to other places,” he said.
Speaking after receiving the donated items, the president, Halal Children’s Home, Hajia Ramat Abubakar, commended the group for donating the items to the children.
She said the children’s home was established to assist in addressing the challenges being faced by orphans and less privileged children, especially children of Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs).
