Group sponsors twin orphans’ education to university
Weeks after the publication of the story titled: ‘Children made orphans by mother’s death, father’s disappearance,’ in The Guardian, a non-governmental organization, Project Help A Child, is sponsoring two of the six children left behind by late Mrs. Rose Agu.
The sponsorship will cover the children’s education from primary school to the university level, including a monthly stipend given to their guardian for their upkeep.
According to the organization, two good Samaritans have offered to sponsor two of the children, a set of 11-year-old twins, both females – Elizabeth and Comfort.
The Project Help A Child team made this disclosure at the weekend when the group visited the family of the foster parents at their Ijegun residence, a suburb of Lagos. The team’s visit brought fresh hope and succour to a family that was literarily at the threshold of despondency.
The team further assured the guardians that they would get kind-hearted people to sponsor the remaining kids, and considerably relieve them of the huge burden their education was causing to the family.
Leader of the delegation, Mr. Gregory Azemobor, said: “Let me kindly appreciate my beloved brother, Mr. Austin Iyoha, and Paybest Concept Ltd, who have volunteered to take responsibility to sponsor the twins. Iyoha is actually my good brother and also a friend on Facebook, who had contacted me about a month ago and signified interest to sponsor a poor child, as part of his support for this noble vision.
“The second sponsor, Mr. Emeka, who is using his company, Paybest Concept Ltd for the sponsorship, had an encounter with us during the Project-Help-a-Child campaign rally held on May 29, this year. He had contacted us from the flyer he was given, and promised to sponsor a poor child too. With this kind act of love, you have shown to a seemingly hope to some indigent children.”
