The second week of December was our project week and it was a very busy week for team members. The Christmas project for 2021 which was tagged “SIRF Funfair with Santa” was specially designed and organised for kids in public primary school. The main aim of this project was to make the kids smile while giving them a Christmas worthy party that featured a display from “Santa Claus”, music, games and other fun activities.
This project held across 2 states (Abuja and Ibadan) on the 10th of December 2021. Team members in Abuja and volunteers in Oyo state displayed complete love and care for the kids in the schools.
At the end of the project, it was amazing to see how excited the kids were and we are grateful that the project was a huge success and our objectives were met. Video and pictures of the event would be uploaded on our social media platforms in due time.
Regardless of the project activities, cases were still handled from our mail max. On the 1st and 2nd of December, school fees cases were handled across 2 beneficiaries. The first school fees request was resolved with the sum of N45,000 which was disbursed to the recipient while the sum of N90,000 was spent on the school fees of some kids whose parent wrote to the foundation.
Health is wealth and it is for this reason we try our best to cater for people health wise. The sum of N25,000 was disbursed for the treatment of a beneficiary.
Wrapping up the cases for the first and second week of December, we had a walk-in case where a payment of N36,000 was made in other to cater the school fees of a child in secondary school.
Other cases were declined as the recipient failed to contact the foundation at the stipulated time.
We want to sincerely appreciate the efforts of all those who contributed to the success of the just concluded project. That was the last project of the year and we are proud to announce that it was a SUCCESS across both states.
