Olori Wuraola of Ile-Ife veers into orphanage aid project
As part of her efforts to put smiles on the faces of the less-privileged, Olori Wuraola Ogunwusi, the beautiful wife of Ooni of Ile-Ife, Oba Enitan Adeyeye Ogunwusi, is on the verge of drawing attention to the plights of orphans and women, especially in the Southwest.
Her organisation, the Olori Wuraola Orphan Aid Project, an initiative under the umbrella of House of Oduduwa Foundation, is working to empower the less-privileged children in Nigeria, regardless of their cultural and religious affiliations.
“The project is committed to helping orphaned children in the country fulfill their potential. We want to assist in the renovation of local orphanages and also provide food and supplies for orphans in rural areas of Nigeria and across Africa,” Olori Wuraola said.
Speaking further, she said: “Orphans are society’s lost children. They are homeless, without parents and often a group without hope due to the devastating effects of war, drought, famine and economic hardships, bringing with them malnutrition, disease and hopelessness. These vulnerable children face a disastrous future without our immediate intervention.
“Our project is able to support these needy children through humanitarian aid and take pleasure in putting smiles on the faces of the-less privileged by reaching out and showing love through a Giveback Concert slated for February 28.”
The concert is planned to create a medium for orphans in the country to have a sense of belonging. According to Olori Wuraola, the concert would also explore the gifts and talents in the less- privileged children and expose them to opportunities capable of launching them into stardom in their various professions.
