In Celebration of Compassion: Supporting Vulnerable Communities Through Ramadan and Easter Initiatives

Compassion is an act of mercy that knows no bounds. During times of celebration, it is important to remember those in vulnerable situations, including orphans and those incarcerated, in our acts and prayers.

I want to take a moment to express my gratitude towards my dear husband, HE Bukola Saraki, and the Abubakar Bukola Saraki Foundation Nigeria for supporting the Wellbeing Foundation Africa’s Alaafia Kwara Initiative during the ongoing Abubakar Bukola Saraki Foundation’s Annual Ramadan Food Palliatives and Iftar Series.

Thanks to their generous donation, the Alaafia Kwara Initiative Team from the Wellbeing Foundation Africa Field Office was able to continue and replenish its annual distribution of food and clean drinkable water to public-minded groups, institutional care homes, rehabilitative correctional facilities, schools, and health centers across Kwara State. This includes our WBFA Mamacare360 Personal Social and Health Education PSHE Facilities throughout Kwara State.

Initiated in 2004 and sustained to date, the Committed To Caring Alaafia Kwara Initiative is dedicated to enhancing social care, health, and wellbeing of every Kwaran, in alignment with the thematic human capital development programming intrinsic to our Wellbeing Economy Agenda.

The Wellbeing Foundation Africa Team in Kwara State continues its annual tradition of supporting and empowering the most vulnerable, including orphans and those incarcerated, through the Wellbeing Foundation Africa Alaafia Kwara Initiative.

In the spirit of compassion during the Holy Seasons of Ramadan, Lent, and Easter, the WBFA Kwara State Team is donating and distributing food items and clean drinking water to 14 WBFA MamaCare360 Program cluster healthcare facilities, as well as community care homes, orphanages, schools, and youth rehabilitative correctional facilities.

The outreach spans across the State and includes Sobi Barrack Medical Center, Okelele Primary Health Center, Children Specialist Hospital Centre Igboro, Civil Service Hospital, University of Ilorin Teaching Hospital, Sobi Specialist Hospital, Adewole Cottage Hospital, Badari Maternity and Clinic, Ogidi Banni Primary Health Center, General Hospital Ilorin, Surulere Hospital, Ajikobi Cottage Hospital, Tolulope Hospital, Boaz Medical, Kwara State Children’s Reception Centre, Gaa-Akanbi Pipeline, Borstal Training Institution, Ganmo Nigeria Correctional Service, Okekura, Kwara State School for Special Needs, Oyun, Al-Muwahideen Centre of Arabic and Islamic Studies, Ori-Oke, and the Idi-Ori Widows Cooperative, Agbaji.

Through these sustained acts of social care, the Wellbeing Foundation Africa reaffirms its commitment to the health and well-being of the community, spreading goodwill aligned with our frontline programmatic goals and implementation, signifying the essence of benevolence that defines this sacred period.
