AGI-Foundation December Outreach, 2018.

 

 

 

 

Alex & Grace Izinyon Foundation (AGIF), A non-profit, non-governmental organization, on Saturday 15th December 2018 visited a community at Gosa kpanyi kpanyi Abuja. They brought festive entertainment, along with basic health services for children and gifts for all to celebrate the season. Over 400 persons participated in the outreach.  The Foundation aimed to address poverty and inequity, provide health services and empower youths through this effort. A representative of AGIF said the Foundation will visit other communities across the country with similar aims and further development projects.

According to Ms. Praise Izinyon, the Foundation was founded with the aim to promote the well-being of the disadvantaged across the globe. A vision succeeded by the original benevolent individuals on which the Foundation is based, Dr. Alex and Mrs. Grace Izinyon.

About 70 percent population of children globally need assistance and majority of them die every year because of hunger and starvation. There is more joy in giving than receiving and majority of children in the country need assistance to survive especially during the festive season. Through the December Outreach, the community received clothings, shoes, bags (for males, females, children and infants). There were educational materials such as backpacks, water bottles, book and sweets. Others included food items such as rice, Indomie, cooking oil, canned tomatoes, Milo, Peak milk, Soaps, toothbrush, toothpaste, Vaseline and detergents were also donated. Toys and many more were also provided.

The community members participated in fun and education activities for gift items; dancing competition, drinking competition, musical chairs and trivia quizzes.

A volunteer said “everybody went home, the children, elderly, youths, pregnant women and nursing mothers were all smiling in fact they got more than they expected. I am grateful for this opportunity to impact lives.” Under its youth empowerment pillar, the Foundation has a volunteer program and eleven volunteers were involved in the outreach.

 

The children were given vitamins and de-worming during the event. The secretary to the chairman, Mr Daniel said health is the most important and we are happy for the health services given to the children. “We lack certain things in the community, we have no electricity despite the proximity of our community to the main road, no water, clinic or school.  We have had no help but we thank God you are here today. We are very grateful for all you have done”

The community further appeal to the government, churches and well meaning Nigerians to support the community to alleviate the suffering of people.
