The St. Mathew’s Anglican Church, Phase 4, Kubwa, Bwari Area Council, at the weekend paid a visit to the Divine Orphanage Kubwa as part of activities to mark the church’s 10th year anniversary celebrations.
The church, which presented some gift items including bag of rice, toiletries, clothing, shoes and cash donations, also offered special prayers for the less privileged children.
Making the presentation on behalf of the church, the Vicar-in-charge, Canon Babatunde Oyesina, said the choice of visiting an orphanage was to demonstrate her love for the children who are most times forgotten and neglected by the society.
“The church in its wisdom, decided to include the orphanage as part of the activities for the anniversary to extend our hands of fellowship to these little ones who the society, often do not remember they are existing,” he said. 
He said it would be unChristian for the church to be wining and dining in the midst of the less privileged ones who may not know where their next meal would come from. 
The cleric, who attributed the increase in number of children in the orphanages to poor family planning, called on parents to produce the number of children they would be able to cater for. 
The chairman of the planning committee, Barr. Ahmed Maiwada, said the anniversary also offered the church the opportunity to give awards to some members in appreciation of their immense and outstanding contributions to the growth of the church. 
Responding, the representative of the orphanage, Mrs Uwakwe, expressed gratitude to the members of the church for their charity, praying that God would reward  them immeasurably.
