The Feeders Foundation Distributes Food  Items To Seventy Widows In The  Slum~NEWSEXTRA

By Adeyemi Obadimu

The feeders foundation on Wednesday joined millions of donors Nationwide and distributed food items to more than 70 poorest widow's  in Sogunro Community Ago Egun Iwaya Slum In Lagos.

The Non_Govermental Organization in their little way showed hand of love to the less previledged widows during this Coronavirus Pandemic.

The foundation gave out food items including rice, beans, gari among others to the community as part of their own way of contributing to the growth of the society.

Hunkokoe Aramide the director of programme at feeders foundation said the action was to complement governments effort towards curtailing the spread of the dreaded COVID-19 especially at the lowest level.

Aramide further explained to NEWSEXTRA that the birthday of the founder of this great NGO,  was on children's day and the way he grew up  motivated this idea of giving back to the society since 3 years ago, . She noted that it did not just start during this Pandemic period, but far back as 2017 

"what we do at feeders foundation is to feed the children in those low income area, and why slum is part of them is because people are seriously suffering in those areas and we know government alone can not do it, that is  why we supported the government during this period".

She called on residents to wash hands regularly, embrace social distancing, discourage hand shaking, hugging and promptly report symptoms of any sickness at the nearest health facility. 

She also sensitized the residents on the dangers of the pandemic and the need to pay attention to warnings from government and health officials on the coronavirus disease. 

She  equally enjoined the residents not to panic as government is doing its best to safeguard the citizens.
