...as the importance of showing love to special kids returns to the centre-stage

Extending hands of love to children especially  those with Special Needs  should be a priority of all.

It is on this heels that the Ogun state Broadcasting Corporation, OGBC, in conjunction with well spirited individuals and organisations, including the Save Her Foundation, Rejoice House, Abeokuta, the Adele Oloko of Orile-Oko, High Chief Olakunle Olalekan put together  a Christmas funfair  to show love to pupils of  Daniel Akintonde Model School for  Children with Special Needs,Abeokuta. 

Speaking on the importance of charity especially to children during this period,  the Founder of the Save Her Foundation, Reverend Fola Achudume pointed out that every child, irrespective of their status, must be given a pride of place and they should not be left unattended to.

Advocating adequate care for children with special needs, the Save Her Foundation Founder  who  was represented by Engineer Mrs Adeoye  noted that if children were given the right attention, they would be productive and become responsible adults.
