Smiles for the Children – Pink Pearl Foundation and Oaken Events Rekindle the Spirit of Giving



Pink Pearl Foundation in collaboration with Oaken Events reached out to 300 children from different orphanages around Lagos on the 31st of December 2011.

The “December Giveaway” event took place at the King’s College Annex, Victoria Island, Lagos. Children from different motherless babies home and correctional facilities such as Special Correctional Centre for Boys – Oregun, Children Centre – Idi Araba, Girls Centre – Idi Araba and Girls Remand Home – Idi Araba were treated to a fun time and given lots of gifts including shoes, clothes and other items.

Today was yet another eye opener for me and a lot of people who came out,” noted Patron of the Pink Pearl Foundation Orode Ryan-Okpu in a post event interview. “Some kids came with no shoes and left with new pairs. We should be grateful for what we have, because the things we take for granted are dreams for some others.

The event was supported and attended by the First Lady of Delta State, Roli Uduaghan, and the First  Lady of Lagos State, Abimbola Fashola.

So great to see the smiles on the faces of the children. God bless them!
