Smiles, joy and hope was the underlining objective as YELOTO AFRICAN CHILDREN FOUNDATION spent the 2014 children’s day celebration with pupils of Children Centre (an orphanage) Idi Araba, Lagos.
Gift items, music, games, refreshments and fun packed activities were lined up for the children aged between 5 and 10 years to enjoy their day.
Dr. Oluyemi Olawaiye, founder of YELOTO foundation says “it’s an opportunity to invest in the development on the Nigerian child, as it seeks to positively impact lives of impoverished children through provisions of health care needs, nutrition and education”. In similar developments, cheques were presented to children and adults with surgical problems to cover expenses of their operation at the Lagos State Teaching Hospital (LUTH) Idi Araba. This is the second year running the foundation will be involved in such humanitarian gesture.
Chairman of Yeloto foundation, Dr. Jaramide Onakoya reteriated the fact that the foundation goals are met through orphanages, children’s homes and educational programs. She said “ our programs will enable the children to achieve their maximum potentials in life through educational success and increased self-esteem.
