Covid-19: Ariyibi foundation distributes food items to 400 in Ogun 

No fewer than four hundred less- privileged persons in Abeokuta have received food items and free hand sanitizers from Lanre Ariyibi -Foundation, a non-governmental organisation.

In an address by the founder of the foundation, Lanre Ariyibi said the gesture is part of efforts to support the state government to provide means of survival for the less privileged people during the lockdown period.

Ariyibi added that his foundation is ready to cushion the effect of the lockdown in Ogun State, saying that Ariyibi foundation will continue to put smile on people’s faces.

In his words, ”Since Government can not do it all alone, the goal and focus of my foundation is to assist in eradicating poverty, reducing child’s illiteracy and sensitizing on proper hygiene in Nigeria.”

While speaking with one of the beneficiaries Ahmed Okanlawon, he described the gesture as a welcome development in the state, saying such philanthropic gestures should be embarked upon by well doing people.

”I want to tell you that I have been thinking of what to feed on when during the lockdown but this gesture came at the right time”, another beneficiary that prefers not to be mentioned added.

Another beneficiaries who spoke with our correspondent, Mrs Onawale thanked the foundation for the gesture. She noted that the foundation has been putting smiles on many people’s faces in the state.
