To commemorate Good Deeds Day, the foundation celebrated by organizing its volunteers into two groups, who simultaneously visited both the Clapai orphanage home and the Jos University Teaching Hospital (JUTH).
The first group of volunteers, while visiting the Clapai orphanage home, engaged in various tasks related to environmental clean-up. They diligently swept inside and outside the house, washed the restrooms, and took care of the dishes, among other things. Additionally, they showed their care for the children by grooming them, plaiting, and barbing their hair.
During their visit, the volunteers noticed several challenges within the orphanage home that posed potential harm to the children. These challenges included faulty drainage in the restrooms, the absence of doors in the restrooms, the use of laundry soap for bathing, a lack of shoes for some of the children, insufficient cutlery, and unclean, unhealthy, untreated drinking water that should not be consumed.
The next group of volunteers went to the pediatric department at the Jos University Teaching Hospital (JUTH), Jos, Plateau State, where they visited three different wards. During their time there, the volunteers interacted with the kids through fun and playful activities, bringing smiles to their faces. They also presented gifts, offered prayers for the children’s well-being, and shared words of affirmation stickers and toiletries. By the end of the visit, all 78 children were filled with happiness and joy.
