The Global Initiative for Peace, Love and Care (GIPLC), with the support of Julius Rone, has donated over N50 million to fund critical surgeries for indigent children in Abuja.

The generosity is aimed at supporting vulnerable children with cancerous diseases and other health challenges, enabling them to access life-saving medical care.

Director General and National Coordinator of GIPLC, Nuhu Kwajafa, while disbursing the funds, yesterday in Abuja, said the initiative came from the 50th birthday celebration of Mr Rone who decided to mark it by supporting the poor and vulnerable children who are unable to access healthcare due to financial incapacitation.

Kwajafa added that the organisation seeks to stimulate sustainable and participatory community charity projects which cater for vulnerable children and women of Nigeria, and the world in general.

Founded in 2006, GIPLC has executed charity projects locally and internationally, having raised and expended over $5 million so far, “hence our humble recognition by both the private, public and government sectors of Nigeria as an NGO with exemplary visibility, integrity and prudence in the solemn discharge of our calling which is touching and changing lives,” Kwajafa said.

He said that Mr Rone, although had the opportunity of partying to celebrate his 50th birthday like other privileged Nigerians, decided to contribute to the survival of vulnerable children in various hospitals with different degrees of illnesses and diseases by paying their surgery bills.

Rone, while speaking with journalists after the distribution of the funds, said that the gesture was to honour God and give back to society, especially the children with disabilities and people with special conditions that require medical support.
