The SOS Children’s Village in Lagos was selected as a worthy beneficiary for the Mandela Day activities by the team from Aspen Nigeria.
This organisation cares for orphaned, abadoned and socially challenged children from birth to approximately 18 years. The Village in Lagos looks after the needs of some 100 children and also attempts to facilitate in the adoption of the children to foster families, who want to take care of the children as their own.
Reaching out to these children helps to give them a better chance to become productive and stable adults who will be able to take up employment and function as effective members of society rather than turn to criminal activities as a means of sustenance.
The Children’s Village was extremely grateful for the much needed donations of medicines, infant milk formula and food which will greatly assist them to care for some of the basic needs of the kids.
