The Give and Let Give initiative by Nigerian movie star Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde, has made quite the difference in the lives of many widows and orphans in Nigeria.
Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde helped renovate the home of Folashade Chijioke (a widow) in just four days. Folashade was nominated after many entries via emails by another widow. Some of the criteria for selection were that the widow being nominated must be hardworking, giving back to the community and doing a decent job in raising her kids.
Folashade’s home was repainted and new furniture were brought in. Her bathroom fittings and kitchen were upgraded, and bunk beds alongside cozy mattresses, a TV, fridge, and gas cooker were given to her.
Folashade and her four kids were taken from the hotel they were lodged in during the renovation and were shown their new home on the 31st of December. The joys on their faces knew no bounds.
