His words: “For us, CSR is matter of life and death, it is not an option. Because we have to answer these simple questions: “did you feed the poor, did you give the thirsty drink, shelter the stranger, did you take care of the sick? did you visit and take care of the prisoners?”
Iluyomade said to be able to answer the questions, the foundation has therefore committed itself to its mission of: “Help for the helpless, Hope for the hopeless, Food for the hungry, Strength for the weak”

…Lauds Senator Tinubu’s Vision To Lift Widows Out Of Poverty

 

Wife of Lagos State Governor, Dr. Ibijoke Sanwo-Olu on Friday called for special care for downtrodden and vulnerable persons in the society especially the widows, with the view to lift them out of poverty and make them live comfortable lives.

Speaking at the commissioning of Patience Home, a facility built to address the plight of widows by New Era Foundation established by Senator representing Lagos Central Senatorial District in the National Assembly, Chief (Mrs) Oluremi Tinubu, Dr Sanwo-Olu said it was important for people to show love to the needy in society and help them to overcome their challenges.

According to Dr. Sanwo-Olu, “We need to love our neighbours as ourselves. There are quite a number of vulnerable and downtrodden in society. I used to be a Medical Doctor and I am still one and so I have seen a lot of people come to the hospital and as small as N200, N500, they can’t even afford to pay for the cards.

“Women, widows, physically challenged, mentally challenged to come to the hospital without relations and people to help them out. I have also been to some orphanages and I found out that there are people out there that have a calling.

“Each and every one of us has a calling and we pray as much as possible that we don’t miss our calling. By the time we are finding ourselves in particular positions, I pray that we will continue to be a vessel of honour, a vessel of blessings to our people out there. The bottom line is that we need to reach out and help the needy in the society.”

Besides, Dr. Sanwo-Olu commended Senator Tinubu for taking it upon herself to cater to the plight of the widows, just as she urged people to emulate her and try as much as possible to be a solution to the challenges confronting others.

“We need to do three things about positioning to be a solution. We must find something to offer and we must love each other. I want to commend our dear Senator, Chief Mrs. Oluremi Tinubu for the vision that she has; for building upon the vision; for not giving up; for being a solution to the various widows out there; for finding something to offer and for not being selfish by keeping all the money to herself.

“We are grateful that we have someone like her in our midst who is always finding something to offer to the people. We are very happy to have her in Lagos State. We thank you for the vision, thank you for keeping the vision, thank you for believing in the vision to take care of our windows,” she said.
