With less than a year following the establishment of the Oil Money Foundation, the humanitarian activities of this non-profit organization have been felt by many Nigerians in dire need of financial and humanitarian assistance.

The foundation, founded by a UK-based entrepreneur, Alafaa Kariboye-Igbo, has paid several visits to orphanages where handsome donations and gift items were generously handed out. When Oil Money Foundation visited Friends of Jesus Orphanage, in Lekki, Lagos, it was a day of joy at the home as the foundation gave out food items and cash gifts.

“We assist the children to live more productive and healthier lives. We support their education, safety, early preparation against pandemics. We also focus on the wellbeing of families for them to start their own businesses and also help many pupils in paying their fees in many schools across the country,” said the entrepreneur fondly known as Oil Money.

Continuing, Kariboye-Igbo said his pet foundation has been touching lives, especially “widows, which we did in Lagos and Edo states recently. The widows were assisted with donation of food items, mattresses, among other items to now fewer than 20 of them.

“We did this to show the widows that the foundation cares for them, and more importantly to assist them and cater for their needs, particularly things that they can’t afford.

“At Oil Money Foundation, we preach love and we let love live in us. We are a philanthropic organization that gives support to the sick and the extremely poor in society,” added Oil Money, while speaking with journalists recently.
