A non-governmental organisation (NGO) set up to honour the late Alhaja Wosilat Aregbesola, Alhaja Wosilat Aregbesola Foundation, has reached out to the less-privileged in the society, with a view to identifying with them and alleviate their sufferings.
At a programme recently held by the organisation, material items like cloths, bags of rice, Detol, kegs of groundnut-oil among others were distributed to the needy in Osogbo, while widows were giving a total sum of N150,000 for them to set up business ventures to improve their financial status.
Speaking on behalf of the benefitting widows, Mrs. Ester Akande, thanked the governor and the management team of the foundation for their support and contribution towards the well-being of the widows.
She prayed for the success of the governor’s administration and further admonished the foundation not to relent in its effort to make life more abundant for the less-privileged in the society. Speaking in the same vein, Mrs. Rebecca Ademola, one of the pilgrims who lost her luggage worth N20,000 during the last pilgrimage to Jerusalem has been given N50,000 by the organisation.
Mrs. Ademola expressed her appreciation to the governor and his family for establishing the foundation, with a view to assisting the less-privileged, while praying for the governor’s success and the foundation to be more successful in its entire endeavours.
Speaking at the event, a member of the State Christian Pilgrims Welfare Board, Prophet Adebunmi Alabi, stated that the foundation was set up to assist the less-privileged, stressing that the foundation has the mandate to go through all the nooks and crannies of the state.
He therefore thanked Governor Rauf Aregbesola for his assistance towards the less-privileged.
