Voice of Change Network International, a foremost global humanitarian organization; launches Project Help a Child campaign with the screening and profiling of the children of indigent widows in Ikeja – Lagos, on Monday 9th, November, 2015.
According to the International Coordinator of the group, Mr Azemobor Gregory, who spoke to VOCNEWS team during the exercise, said “Project-Help-A-Child was birthed out of the desire to see less privilege children live meaningful lives. The idea behind the project is to encourage men and women all over the world to see every child on the streets as their own. This project encourages every adult to take full responsibility for the well being and upkeep of a child that may not necessarily be their biological child or a child of a relative.
Speaking further, he said “God created a world, where every parent ought to see every child on the street as their own; If we live according to this principle, no child will have any reason to live in lack. What society fails to realize is that those children we neglect and abandon today, would eventually grow up to constitute nuisance to societal peace and security” The vision of Project Help a Child, in is his words is to inspire 100 million people all over the world to care for 100 million children of the poor.
He recognized the following as the benefits of this laudable project to humanity:
. The project will give hope to hopeless children.
. It will promote universal brotherhood.
. It will help to reduce poverty.
. It will be a veritable tool to combat the menace of crime and insecurity, as neglected children easily become criminals and societal misfits.
. Ultimately, it will help to restore the much needed peace and stability in the world.
The screening and profiling exercise for the “Project-Help-A-Child campaign”, commenced at exactly 10a.m with many widows trooping in with their children to be assessed by the Voice of Change Network staff. Many who came, were widows from different tribes and religions affiliation- Muslims & Christians alike, as religion was not a consideration for acceptance. The screening was aimed at ascertaining those children whose condition of living was truly deplorable. At the close of the exercise by 6p.m in the evening, the number of children that qualified to be supported were about 10. This is just the first phase of the exercise. This exercise is on going, in identifying indigent children all over the world that need to be supported by kind hearted people.
