Students Organize Food Drive To Mark #ChildrensDay

As part of its 2017 Children’s Day celebration, Students of St. Saviours Primary School Ikoyi organized a food drive to help FoodClique support their "Children Helping Children Program".

With hunger on the rise especially among children in our society today, students of the elementary school were encouraged to bring any non-perishable food items for distribution to disadvantaged kids.

This food drive was promoted by President of the Students Council Layomi Odusanya while her efforts resulted in the donation of several hundreds of food items such as Noodles, Bread, Spaghetti, Beverages,Bags of  Rice,  Biscuits  and Fruits.

The  Director of Programs for FoodClique, Tomi Sadiq  was full of appreciation for the young students while accepting the food items.

“We are so grateful to the students of  St Saviours  School Ikoyi for holding this food  drive to support hungry children and their families who go to bed hungry every night in a country as blessed as ours."

He further stated that “It was indeed heart warming to see kids give to help their peers who are disadvantaged and this  act of charity stands to make a difference in their lives going forward"

He concluded by emphasizing the role of charitable acts and donations especially from young and enjoined parents, public and private sector organisations to support FoodClique Support Initiative in its quest to creating a world where no child goes hungry.
