This initiative he said, “Is in furtherance to our initial support to SOS Children’s Villages Nigeria a few months ago.
Having visited their facility in Gwagwalada, Abuja, we realized there was need for further support the centre in ways that touches beyond the components of our MOU especially in the area of healthcare for some of children in the facility, hence the decision to give more funds towards this course.”
