Firms fete orphans, offer scholarships to 10

Orphans go through agonising experiences in life,  particularly at an early age. Being an orphan implies that such a person was or will be raised without the care and love of their biological parents.
This set of people apparently rely solely on the  intervention of other individuals or organisations for survival. Food and other items are expected to be provided by different individuals for orphans.
Periodically, kind individuals visit orhanages and homes to celebrate their birthdays, wedding anniversaries, breakthroughs or during festive periods to share the joy of the season with the less-privileged children.
Some organisations also visit the homes with relief materials and other items, as part of their corporate social responsibility (CSR).
In this regard, officials of New Crystal Communication Limited, last week, took a tour of five orphanage homes in Abuja, donating different relief items to celebrate the orphans, their caregivers and to appreciate God for a successful and hitch-free business year.
The orphanage homes visited were Ark of Refuge, Christ Foundation, Gifted and Talented, Treasure and Talithiacum homes.
Items distributed included schoolbags, toiletries, hostel beds and mattresses, generators, school uniforms, clothes, textbooks and exercise books, as well as food and other household items.
The items, Abuja Metro gathered, were purchased and distributed based on the need of each of the orphanage homes.
The marketing manager of the company, Augusta Ndigwe, said the gesture was not because they made much profit in the outgoing year, but to share love and feel the pulse of the less privileged in the society with the little resources God has blessed them with.
She said: “Our aim was not to display wealth but to show some love to these children who were orphaned by no fault of theirs, and are isolated from the love and care of their biological parents.
“It was also an opportunity for us to celebrate their care-givers, who have been dutiful in their care for these children. We supported them in our own little way with items needed to ameliorate the suffering of the children in their custody.”
She was impressed with the health and mental condition of the children, and encouraged their caregivers to continue to give their best to the children, with prayers that God would reward them abundantly.
She announced that the management of the company had agreed to offer scholarship to 10 orphans who had outstanding academic performance, to aid their academic quest.
The operator of Christ Foundation Orphanage, Gabriel Kuta, was grateful to New Crystal Communication Limited, for remembering them with items that would help them give good care to the children.
He prayed that God would replenish the pockets of whoever was involved in the provision of the relief items. He also encouraged other philanthropists to emulate the company and restore hope in the less privileged children.
Meanwhile, the children used drama, dance and other presentations to solicit increased intervention of government and other Nigerians in issues that concern orphans and other underprivileged people in the society.
