Glo spreads Christmas love to orphanages

Nigeria’s national telecommunications carrier, Globacom, has lit up many orphanages across the country with the donation of household goods and goodies worth millions of naira in the spirit of the Christmas.

Items donated include edibles, household utilities, body care products, toiletries and other essentials used by the orphanages in their day-to-day operations.

The gifts were handed over by Globacom officials in different locations across the country, including Lagos, Ibadan, Benin, Enugu, Abuja and Port Harcourt.

Among the charity organisations, which benefitted from the Yuletide largesse are Little Saints Orphanage, Palmgrove and Heritage Homes, Anthony Village, both in Lagos; Oluyole Cheshire Home, Sango and the Ibadan Motherless Babies’ Home in the Oyo State capital; Zion Orphanage, Lugbe and St Mary’s Children’s Home for Orphans in Abuja.

Others are Oronsaye Orphanage Home, Agbodo and Edo Orphanage in Benin; Nigerian Red Cross Motherless Babies’ Home, Ogbette and Abandoned Children’s Home in Enugu and Port Harcourt Children’s Home, Borokiri, as well as Lifeline Orphanage in Port Harcourt.

The company said the donations were part of its initiatives of reaching out to the less privileged in the society.

‘’This is part of our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programmes. It is meant to give the less privileged a feel of excitement during this festive season so that they are assured that they are neither forgotten nor abandoned”.

According to Globacom, the Christmas period is designed for spreading love and goodwill and showing care and concern for the less privileged in the society.

‘’As we give our families and friends gifts to make them know that we love and care deeply for them, we must not forget that some children are out there lacking in several respects. Some lack food and good clothing while some lack the love of their biological parents,’’ said Globacom in the statement.

The operator called on privileged individuals and companies in the country to remember less privileged children at festive periods, saying, “We must spare a thought for them as we enjoy the good times with our loved ones”, the release added.
