Speaking with, Abimbola, who is a co-founder of DemiCareNGO, said the non-governmental organisation goes round public schools to give out free uniforms to indigent students.

According to her, she has been doing this for five years without showcasing it on social media.

Speaking about the work her NGO does, she said:

“We normally give out 50 Uniforms and 50 sandals to selected pupils with bad uniforms and those without shoes. I later increased the number to 70 due to large number of children without shoes in all the schools.”

The woman said when trolls attack her online for putting smiles on people’s faces and showcasing it, she respond to some and ignore most of them.

In her words:

“I have been doing this without showcasing it to the world for many years but I have decided to push my work out there even if it's a tiny fraction of what I do.”
