Trinitas Foundation feeds 6000 families for Christmas
…Canvasses for greater agricultural investment
Non governmental Organisation, Trinitas Foundation Africa has provided food relief and economic support to 6000 families in Lagos.
Chief Executive Officer of the foundation, Ade George, also canvassed for greater agricultural investment in Nigeria as a lasting solution to poverty in the nation.
Themed “Christmas Cheer 2021,” the initiative was set up to restore the hope and spirit of Christmas through the provision of food items, household items, educational materials, and monetary aid to underprivileged families.
“We import more than we export. We encourage more people to go into agriculture,” he said.
He called for better governance and accountability of leaders.
“The level of poverty in this country is scary right now and as much as we try to blame the government, that narrative has become a bit tiresome.
“We are the government. Every official is a reflection of our society. It’s important for us as a people/nation to show kindness in these desperate times; to recognise the power of positive thinking and to act accordingly,” he said.
George added that the foundation also offers entrepreneurship and women empowerment in its battle against hunger and poverty, adding that partnering with Eti Osa Local government, hundreds of beneficiaries and volunteers were vaccinated at the event.
Partners of the event included Binance Charity Foundation, Buhler NG, Altecho Farms, Globatos, Jaydel Mart, Ava and George, George Residence Lekki, Corporate Luxury, Zircon rentals, The Ornate Stop, Pistis Foundation and others.
