- Some Corp members have decided to mark this year's Valentine's Day celebration different from past years
- The unidentified Corp members took to the streets of Kano to show love to 50 almajiri kids by treating them to nice meals
- They intend to take it up from there and make it a monthly exercise
Corp members doing their National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) programme in the northern state of Kano have celebrated this year's Valentine's Day in a unique fashion.
The Corp members whose identities were still unknown as of time of filing this report identified with almajiri kids and showered them love in their own way. They gathered 50 of the kids and gave each one of them a plate of food.
The leader of the Corp members - and brain that conceived the thought of starting it - that embarked on the humanitarian exercise took to Twitter, with the handle @proudyeyebf, to share the news of the exercise which held some minutes before the hour of 12 noon.
He said he felt delighted and fulfilled at conducting this exercise. @proudyeyebf narrated what informed his decision to spend Val with the kids.
The Corp member stated that he was touched by how these almajiri kids begged alms and even dwelt on the left over of others. At that instance he conceived the idea to start what he tagged a mission to feed 50 kids.
Thanks to support from other Corp members who believed in the project, money for the exercise was raised and they got a vendor to make the food.
His post read in part;
"My fellow corp member decides to join so we split the bill.
"It was very easy to organise, all we did was talk to a food vendor to prepare 50 plates of food at #300 each, she (food vendor) was also the one who helped us talk to the master of the almajiris."
Following the success of the project, he said he was considering making it a monthly exercise.
"I felt delighted and fulfilled when those children smiled while receiving the food. My goal is to make it a seasonal or probably monthly thing but my income is unstable."
