During the visit, members of MMM and the foundation unveiled a rehabilitated playing ground, basketball court and also presented food items, beds and gifts.
Speaking at the event, Amaka Benson, Offline Secretary & Events Manager for MMM Charity said: “We were brought here by Community Development Workers called Life Changing Humanitarian Services. They wrote a letter to us and we approved it to help them carry out some of their projects.
“Today we are unveiling a new playground with swings for the children including a basketball court. This place was nothing to write home about, It had been abandoned and the kids had nowhere to play so we raised money to assist them. Basically, at MMM, we are out to put smiles on the faces of people and we do this every month across Nigeria,” Benson added.
Also speaking, Mr O. Joseph of Life Changing Humanitarian Service said: ”Life Changing Carries out humanitarian services. We chose this school because we believe that Igbeyi Adun Special School needs help. They have been abandoned for years so we came in here to see what we can do for them. You need to see the condition of some of the children, it is very terrible.
“We want to say a big thank you to MMM. We were shocked when they agreed to sponsor this project because many organisations turned us down.”
Founder of the school, Mrs Victoria Cotonu disclosed that the school was founded in 1990 to cater to challenged kids: “After my training in America and the UK, I came back to Nigeria and founded this school. I realised that we have these children in our midst and we have to cater to them because they are part of society.
“We used to have support from government, churches and individuals but since the recession, it has taken a down turn and this has affected us negatively. I appreciate what MMM has done through Life Changing Humanitarian Services today. Only God can reward them. God will continue to bless guide and protect you and reward you abundantly.”
This is coming as it is presumed the ponzi scheme is dead and planning to relocate from the country.
