Nigerians who graduated from universities in Turkey has donated various items to some orphanage homes in Edo and Delta states.
Coordinator of the group in Delta State, Mr Emmanuel Orugboh said that the idea was not to impress anybody with the amount of money and items donated to the charity homes but to complement various efforts.
He said, “The idea is not to impress anybody with the amount of money and items donated but to complement various efforts by good-spirited individuals to make life meaningful to these vulnerable members of the society.
“The less privileged children’s homes targeted by the Nigerian graduates from various Turkish universities is to share the joy of the last Christmas and New Year celebrations in Nigeria.
Orugboh harped on the generally unfriendly economic situation in the country, saying that there was an urgent need for Nigerians to reinvent the culture of caring for others no matter how little they had.
In his goodwill message, the founder and worldwide coordinator of the group, Germany-based journalist and author, Frisky Larr and Dr Ogundigie, said that the donation to the orphanages was just a gesture of love, adding that the Turkish universities alumni across Nigeria had resolved to increase the donations in future.
