A nongovernmental organisation, Kehinde Salami Foundation, (KSF) has set up machineries for the distribution of palliatives to indigent members of the Ojo Local Government in Lagos State as a way to assuage the sufferings of the masses, particularly in the month of Ramadan.

Salami, who will lead the team to ensure effective distribution of the palliatives on Thursday said no fewer than 300 indigent people, comprising of widows, widowers and sundry less privileged shall benefit from the package which was structured to coincide with the end of the Holy Month of the Muslim faith.

The KSF boss urged the people of Iba Local Council Development Area (LCDA), where the items would be distributed and Ojo local council, in general, to abide by the stay-at-home order, maintenance of personal and public hygiene as well as maintenance of social distancing order by the government so as to curb the spread of the infectious virus, stressing that the best way to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 disease is by adhering to directives by medical experts.
“Our foundation is set out to be a frontrunner in humanitarian activities as well as making life meaningful for the less privileged irrespective of their political, religious and social affiliations in the society. Our mission is clear and with the support of God, we are gradually achieving our goals of bridging the wide gaps between the poor and the rich.
“Majorly, this intervention programme will go a long way in providing reliefs to our brothers and sisters, young and old as well as the downtrodden who have been subjected to hardship by the outbreak of COVID-19 which eventually led to lockdown and movements restriction order imposed by the government.”

Salami however commended the Lagos State Government, Iba LCDA Bosslady, Hon Ramota Adedayo Oseni, community development associations and other philanthropists for their efforts in the distribution of palliatives to the people, saying that the Kehinde Salami Foundation will continue to help the needy.
