In a bid to continue to put smiles on the faces of the needy, especially those suffering from cerebral palsy and other disabilities, the Founder of Hayat Foundation and wife of the Kogi State governor, Her Excellency, Hajia Amina Yahaya Bello, has restored the hopes of Mr and Mrs Ernest Aneojo-Bello, who were stranded at the National Hospital, Abuja, after having a set of four babies.
After a careful investigation into the matter in order to know areas of services they qualify for in line with the Foundation’s vision, the family was visited with tremendous benefits ranging from food items and baby materials.
The action of Her Excellency is in line with the commitment of Hayat Foundation to her vision of seeing that every child has all that it takes to live their best lives.
Consequently, on November 10, Hajia Yahaya Bello and the whole staff team executed the intervention.
Her Excellency, who was received by the hospital management led by the Matron in Charge, took time to pray for the well being of the girls and also pledged her organization’s commitment to them and their family. She appreciated the hospital management for doing their job well, especially the level of care and support they gave to the family.
The highly overjoyed couple expressed their gratitude to Hajia Bello and the organization for coming to their rescue.
The father of the quadruplet, Mr. Ernest Amodu, in his happiness, said the foundation’s response was way beyond his expectations, adding that “if this is to be a book, the foundation has covered over two chapters.”
Among the items the family received were: ➢ 16 set Baby cloths ➢ 24 tins of Baby foods ➢ 4 cartons Diapers ➢ Commitment for to better accommodation for 2 years ➢ 12 pieces of Wrappers for the mother ➢ 50 tubers of yam ➢ 2 bags of Rice ➢ 9 tins of versline ➢ 4 set of Shawl ➢ 2 cartons of milo ➢ 2 cartons of Milk ➢ 4 set of baby cosmetics ➢ 12 packets of sugar ➢ 4 set of baby stockings.
In her response, the kindhearted mother told reporters that it is not good to leave people to themselves when they are in need.
“We all should rally round and come to their aid,” she said.
The Hayat Foundation is a non-for-profit organisation set up for the purpose of assisting particularly those suffering from cerebral palsy and other disabilities as well as the needy.
It is a venture in honour of the beloved son of her Excellency and her husband, the Governor of Kogi State, Hayatullah Onoru-Oyiza Bello, who is suffering from cerebral palsy. The Foundation is actually coined from his name.
