The Olori Aderonke Omolola Erinle (OAOE) Foundation has revealed readiness to sustainably cater for the elderly in Nigeria.
In a press briefing, the founder of the non-profit organization, Olori Aderonke Omolola Erinle talks about the inspiration behind the foundation as she elaborates on the roles the organization will be playing in the lives of the aged Nigerians moving forward.
“The OAOE Foundation was an idea and thought that was borne out of the passion i have for the elderly, having watched my late mother (whom i took over from) been there for my Grandparents, tending and attending to their everyday needs, and it was this that i grew with and after the death of my Grandfather particularly, this led me to adopt the idea of caring for the elderly in the my Church, and from there i took it into the larger Society, it was this attitude of mine way back that gave birth to what we have come to brief you about today.
The Olori Aderonke Omolola Erinle (OAOE) Foundation is a non for profit and Non Governmental Organization that advocates and propagates the need to help, invigorate and rehabilitate the Senior Citizens (Old people) in our Society. With our Motto which is “Positively Affecting Lives (PALs)” ,our mission is to ‘Dispense total care by providing financial assistance and emotional support to the vulnerable and our vision is “Touching lives, Creating Change, Redefining hope and Dispensing hope”, as we engage, help and grant all forms of support to the aged.
The Foundation is also actively involved in various charity programme geared toward assisting the widows, the motherless children and physically challenged in our Society.
Our work so far has been self sponsored, support from few companies and passionate individuals who shares in the vision of the Foundation.
Going forward, we are putting measures in place to build a sustainable home that offers value and pulls in the resources to effectively carry out our mission.
In view of the above, we would like to use this opportunity to invite in-partnership, Prestigious Organization to come sponsor the foundation at our Charity & Fundraising Ball which is scheduled to hold on September 14, 2019 at the Oriental Hotel, Victoria Island Lagos by 4pm.
This event will encompass a number of novel programs around the aged especially the official unveiling of the Adult Care Centre (Old People’s Home) and a fashion line for the aged which has been created to sustain the Foundation. The Home will provide a decent and wholesome environment for the vulnerable aged.
I would like to use this medium to thank the Almighty God for this sustainable vision because without God, we can do nothing. To My Family and individuals involved as volunteers’ of this great mission, i say a big thank you.
