Addressing MTN staff who spent a day with children of Down Syndrome Association Home in Surulere, Lagos as part of their 21 Days of YelloCare initiative, highly-elated Mordi said: “We are overwhelmed by this gesture by MTN particularly by the sheer number of staff that came to visit and spend time with the children, the volume of gifts and for undertaking to foot the surgery bill for baby Ajoke – a child with congenital heart defect. It is totally unexpected but certainly gratifying.”

She added that “MTN is not just giving back to the community but saving lives through its gesture of goodwill and philanthropy.”  

Earlier, Wale Goodluck, Corporate Services Executive, MTN Nigeria, who led the team, said for this year’s edition of 21 Days of Y’ello Care, MTN volunteers were paying attention to the health and the general wellbeing of people and focusing on the environment in line with the global efforts to stem the general deterioration of the environment.
