The event was geared towards making the less privileged to partake in the ongoing Christmas festivity.
500 vulnerable widows drawn from Nasarawa and Niger states, as well as the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), benefited from the funfair.
Items donated included bags of rice, tomato, seasonings, vegetable cooking oil, and bundles of cloth (wrapper). Also, indigent pupils in public schools were picked for award of scholarship.
President of the foundation, Mrs Jumai Ahmadu, revealed that most of the donated items were sourced from missionaries and benefactors.
She said the foundation was poised to empower widows and pay school fees for children under the foundation’s scholarship scheme. This year’s event, according to the founder, brought to 400 the number of children on the sponsorship list of the foundation since 2005.
She called on government and other corporate bodies to use the season of Christmas to assist the less privileged, noting that such kind gesture would reduce suffering among people and tame the crime rate in the society.
She said, “In every festive season, the foundation makes it a point of duty to put smile on the faces of vulnerable children orphaned by HIV/AIDS. This year’s event is the 8th edition of the foundation’s charity work towards the less privileged. We’ll continue to sustain the tempo because charity work brings joy to the heart.”
Mrs Linda Uchete, who spoke on behalf of the FCT widows, expressed their gratitude to the NGO for the gesture, calling on other individuals and organisations to follow suit.
Present at the event were the Secretary, Health and Human Service Secretariat,  FCT Administration, Dr. Demola Onakomaiya; the Executive Director, Abuja Geographic Information Systems (AGIS), Hajiya Jamila Tangaza, Special Assistant to the Minister of State for Social Development, Mrs Uche Nwanfo and President, Market Women Association, Mrs Felicia Sani.
