Olalekan Samad is a five year old boy who lost his left leg as a result of accident. The mum Mrs. Abdullahi explained that lekan has been out of school since due to the accident, both her and his dad had spent all they had in the hospital, so they are so broke that they can’t afford to pay his school fee, and also the father’s work (carpenter) is not doing well. the father also on how well his business is doing and why he is not able to provide for his family. The father bitterly explained that his business is not doing fine, as a carpenter, contracts have not been coming in for him, the little income he gets goes for feeding.
The mother’s was enquired about her job, She responded soberly that she was a small scale food stuffs seller, but spent all the fund for her business on her son’s accident. The executive director (Mr. Bakare) asked how the parents of the child would like to be supported. They responded that they would like their son to go back to school. Mr Olatunbosun then announced that the organisation (ASPIRING GENERATION FOUNDATION) is willing to help them sponsor the child’s education by paying the school fees and other school materials. Both parents were happy and thankful. Pictures were taken afterwards.
