Sallah: Foundation feeds over 500 children, PWD, others in Abuja community

The Queen Adenike Tejuosho (QAT) Foundation Sunday feted children and People with Disability (PWD) and the less privileged in the Karmonjigi community in Abuja.

The gesture by the foremost Foundation in Nigeria is in commemoration of the Eid el Kabir festival.

Speaking for the Founder QAT Foundation, Dr. Halimat Adenike Tejuosho, during the gig, Agatha Abdulahi said the Foundation fed over 500 children, PWD and others at the Sallah party.

According to her, the Foundation was at Durumi, Kuchingoro and now in Karmanjigi community to celebrate Sallah with the children.

She said, “I am here to represent the founder who sent us to come and celebrate with the over 500 children of this community, gift them with school bags, writing materials, foods and other items. In short, our founder is the reason we are having this gathering on a Sallah day.

“We realisd that the government cannot do it alone, hence our intervention through this foundation across the country.”

Responding on behalf of Alhaji Suleiman Katsina, Emir of People with Disability in the community, the Secretary Alhaji Muhammad Dantami thanked the Foundation for the gesture, saying in the last twenty years, no Foundation has ever done this for us.

He appealed to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) to continue to empower the PWDs so that they can also empower their community via skills acquisition.

“As you can see, everybody is out here and happy with what Alhaja Halimat Asenike Tejuosho Foundation has done for us and our children most especially.

“This humanitarian activity is rare as virtually all the states of the federation have had a taste of her Foundation gesture,” Danrami added.

Dantami, who described Tejuosho as their ‘mandate’ joined others in calling on President Bola Tinubu to consider Tejuosho for the Humanitarian Minister position for better delivery.
