The mark of Godly and absolute philanthropy goes beyond lip service, but more in action as has been proved by Reverend Mother Esther Ajayi, the Founder and General Overseer of Love of Christ Generation Church, Clapham, London.
Among many of her enterprising welfare outreaches is the newest in the kitty, the Esther Ajayi Foundation, which was launched on Sunday, November 12, 2017, at the prestigious Shangri-La Hotel at the shard London.
Reverend.Mother Esther Abimbola Ajayi, whose generosity speaks volumes, believes in the power of what can be achieved when a good Christian places giving at the centre of their lives as well as how much change an individual can bring about through giving.
At the event, which drew the best of individuals in the care giving sector, the soft-spoken woman of faith, disclosed that the Foundation is keenly interested in helping the indigent in the society to overcome homelessness, poverty, in addition to reaching out to those in detention camps, offenders who need rehabilitation, people with disabilities, as well as supporting other forms of charity and projects.
The scope of the Esther Ajayi Foundation is unlimited as it will be supporting projects in the United Kingdom, Africa and the rest of the world.
In his remarks, Abiodun Enilari Paseda, Founder of Focus on Disability Foundation United Kingdom, congratulated Rev. Mother Esther Ajayi on her giant strides, saying that his foundation looks forward to working with Esther Ajayi Foundation to improve the lives of people with disabilities in Africa.
The event was not devoid of special guests as notable individuals like Lord John Taylor, Hon Shimon Shetreet, Hon Nadeem Ammar, Mr. Charles Khiran, Pastor Olatunji Adebayo, Cllr. Ade Aminu, Dr. Anna Mbachu, Princess Moradeun Adedoyin-Solarin, Princess Toyin Onagoruwa, LOC members, Focus on Disability Foundation team and many more, added glamour to the event with their gracious presence.
The Esther Ajayi Foundation, which recently dished out a N10 million largesse for the medical expences of a four-year-old boy with brain tumour, is passionate about providing support and resources to the needy in addition to eradicating poverty and inequality from the world. It also places emphasis on absolute philanthropy, volunteerism, and making a difference in the world.
Iya Adura, as she is fondly called, has entertained notable personalities in her London Church, among whom are former President Olusegun Obasanjo, former Governor of Osun State, Prince Olagunsoye Oyinlola, the Ooni of Ife, Oba Enitan Adeyeye Ogunwusi, Evangelist Ebenezer Obey and many more.
Her charisma, and more importantly, her unquenchable faith, has created in her the grace to handle almost any human situation, using God as her back bone.
Reverend Mother Ajayi also runs the Fit Faith Club, created to physical body in complementation of the building of the spirit.
Her vision is to build an empire for Christendom in the coming years, knowing that if God can do what He had done in her life in recent times, then there is absolutely nothing God cannot do.
“I have got dreams; if He can do this, He can do greater things. That is how I see Jesus,” She affirmed.
