According to her, the African foremost monarch through HAI is committed to helping these children who will always be supported in all areas of welfare and will be given hope for a better future."Kabiyesi was so disturbed by the ugly report that over thirty children could be found living in a cramped building with no gate, only being taken care of by a middle aged widow who singlehandedly provides few of their needs with meagre proceeds from her nursing job.These children drink water from a well, sleep in rooms with leaking roofs and no windows, thereby exposing them to malaria, typhoid and other diseases. They have no medical care at all and can barely afford a good meal.We have committed ourselves to helping these children and we will keep supporting and keep giving them hope. Your little help will go a long way in helping these children live happy lives and securing the future" Temitope Adesegun added.Signed:Comrade Moses Olafare,Director, Media & Public Affairs,Ooni's Palace
