Israeli Community visits Orphanage, donates items
A delegation of the Israeli Community resident in Abuja on Tuesday they visited the Anawim Orphanage Home (Poorest of the Poor) in Gwagwalada and donated tons of food stuffs, clothing, toiletries, medicines and baby toys to the inmates.
The Israeli Deputy Head of Mission to Nigeria, Mr. George Deek, who led the delegation, explained that members of the Israeli community in Abuja decided to put their resources together and give something back to the society where they live.
According to him, the idea of showing love to the less privileged members of the society was initiated by one of the Israelis, which the Embassy immediately embraced and supported as a worthy cause.
Mr. Deek commended the Missionary Sisters for the Poorest of the Poor, MSSPP, managers of the Home for rehabilitating the destitute who according to them are picked up from the streets.
The General Coordinator of the Orphanage, Reverend Sister Oresoa, Selo-Ojeme, while responding, thanked members of the Israeli Community for their magnanimity, even as she disclosed that the items, especially the food stuff and medicines would go a long way in taking care of its 97 inmates.
The Orphanage she further explained, was established in 1995 to rehabilitate abandoned children, orphans, psychiatrics, the aged, pregnant teenagers, as well as prostitutes.
