Speaking at the event, the convener of the OSM, Mr. Olawale Badmus thanked the home for opening its doors to receive the team and items
He said the OSM was propelled to donate the items because of the need to make the children in the home as comfortable as possible and also ensure that the vacuum created by their situation does not distort their growth and bond with society.

He further said his group was equally propelled by the uncommon and selfless gesture of the vice president who in 2019 while celebrating his birthday, used the occasion to raise funds that were devoted to building schools and homes for orphaned and displaced children in Borno state.
Badmus said that society at every level, devoid of class and status must stand up for one another and make life meaningful for everyone.
In her reaction, the supervisor of the home, Madam Martha thanked the OSM for the heart-touching gesture and prayed that God will replenish the purse of the donors.
The visit was concluded on an emotional note as the children prayed for the OSM and for Nigeria.
