- Legit.ng has used money donated to its Patreon's programme to get displaced kids of Calabar new items
- Part of the things bought was a freezer while the remainder of the donated sum was given to Basic Rights Counsel Initiative
- The children who were visibly happy picked items they loved among the pack and one of them held on to a fine footwear
As part of Legit.ng’s programme to humanity, we have put smiles on the less privileged kids of Calabar. The items were given to Basic Rights Counsel Initiative (BRCI).
In a video, Legit TV lead correspondent, Damilare Okunola, could be seen with a cart shopping for the children
Members of the NGO assisted in the shopping so that basic needs of the children will not be left out. It should be noted that the children with the BRCI are kids who have been displaced and abused.

Legit.ng went to Calabar with the sum of N200,000 and shopped for items worth N147,590. The balance was given to the organisation.
"Some of you contributed so that we can come here. We came here with a total of N200,000. All of these items you are seeing here cost us about N147,590. The balance will be sent to the organisation's account so they can get other items for some of these children."
Another thing worth knowing is that some of those children were supposedly sent out by their parents. The Legit.ng Patreon has been effective in supporting the NGO.
The co-founder of the organisation appreciated Legit.ng. He said that the children were happy that they were able to decide what they wanted.
When one of the kids was asked what she would use a bus for, she jokingly said “to take it to spa.”
