Federal Capital Territory (FCT) and some neighbouring communities in Niger and Nasarawa states.
Items donated include; books, clothes, writing materials, and water dispensers among others.
Presenting the items to the beneficiaries at Nyanya, Abuja Coordinator of the group, Mr Archibong Anderson  called on Nigerians not to donate to orphans and vulnerable children only during  festive seasons but at all times because many children are in dire need of empowerment.
He said when members of the public cannot reach such needy children directly they can always come to the organization for assistance.
He said some of the children live with care givers, widows and their grandparents, who cannot afford to fend for them properly.
Anderson said the water dispensers were donated because children need to drink clean water always, adding that the organization will be going to the home of the beneficiaries to teach their parents or caregivers how to use them.
A beneficiary, 12 year old Blessing Abu said she came from Masaka, in Nasarawa State to receive the items because she and her siblings live in abject poverty with their widowed mother.
Another beneficiary, Elvis Ernest said though both his parents are alive, his family is very poor. The eight year old said he is an apprentice mechanic at Under Bridge, near Area 11 Junction in Abuja. He said he is always shouted on, knocked on the head and beaten on daily basis by workers there even when he has done nothing wrong.
