As part of their social responsibilities to the Nigerian society, members ofÂ Nigerian Football Supporters Club yesterday donated gift items to the motherlessÂ babies home, Heart of Gold in Surulere, Lagos, Nigeria.
The gift items, which included toiletries and food items were given to theÂ management of the Home, led by Administrative Manager, Mrs. Funke Bankole. SpeakingÂ during the visit, the clubâ€™s 2nd Vice Chairman, Chief Isaac Ebi Siawe said that aÂ committee for the end of the year activities of the club suggested that theÂ supporters club celebrate with the less privileges as part of the activities toÂ round off the year.
â€œI want to commend members of the committee for giving us a good suggestion to beÂ part of the life of these abandoned babies. This is not the first time that membersÂ of the club will come here,â€ he said.
Responding, Admin. Manager of the Home, Mrs. Bankole thanked the supporters club forÂ the gift items. â€œIâ€™m so grateful for what the club did here today.
“Iâ€™m particularly touched with these pampers because pampers are part of what weÂ need most here. We thank you for helping us,â€ she said.
Some members of the club, including the Social Secretary, Mrs Kemi Popoola were inÂ Â tears when they saw a three weeks old handsome boy, who was abandoned in a LagosÂ hospital and being catered for at the Home.
