The Millard Fuller Foundation, in its usual custom, donated relief items to about 50 widows and aged women in Luvu Community.
The event which took place on the 20th of December 2019 is part of the organisation’s effort at giving back to the host community of Luvu Madaki at Christmas.
Presenting the gift items on behalf of the organisation, the Ag. Head of Marketing and Communications of Fuller, John Olugbemi, noted that though it was the aim of the organisation to build truly affordable homes for low-income earners in the country, this would not have been possible without the support of the host community.
Olugbemi further used the opportunity to introduce the empowerment scheme of the organisation – More Than Houses – to those present, urging them to inform their children and wards, as it is intended to give them the much-needed skills to become self-sufficient while also assisting in contributing to the growth and development of the community.
The resident pastor of the ECWA church in Luvu, where the event took place, thanked Fuller for making a difference in the community as the housing projects have not only employed their youths but have also exposed the community to the outside world, locally and internationally.
Some of the beneficiaries, who could not hold back their emotions, were full of praise and prayers for the organisation.
