When Yemisi Wada, started visiting boys at Kuramo Beach many years ago, it confirmed what she always knew: that raising a child took a lot more than money; it took a big heart able to love even the unloved.

On the latest episode of “The Heart Of The Matter”, she talks about how she is doing her part in finding a haven for many street children in Lagos and how Haven for the Nigerian Child is giving them hope.

Watch below.

    This woman’s grace and her heart of gold sha!

    I follow a number of “charitable” causes on social media and you can’t help but sense that some are in it for the buzz-worthiness or photo ops. Not Yemisi Wada.
    I’ve followed her work for long enough to know she’s the real deal.

    She, Slum2School and UKF are giving kids another chance. Seriously…God bless you!

    Correct Mrs. Wada. Not a twang in sight, yet well spoken.
