Hope For The Old Foundation launches in Victoria Garden City

On Saturday 24th June, Winix Hope for the old International Foundation opened its doors to the Senior Citizens of Victoria Garden City (VGC) in Lagos State of Nigeria.

This makes VGC the second Centre where HFTO has reached its tentacles in its deep desire to reach out to the elderly. The first Centre which hosts almost 200 members , is currently in Diamond Estate Isheri Idimu in Alimosho local government area of Lagos State in Nigeria.

At the kick off edition in VGC, the seniors came in spite of heavy downpours and they had some sessions with the Founder, Wunmi Cosmas. They also enjoyed dance aerobics, mental exercises and interesting games.

At hand to welcome them was the very amiable Vice Chairman of VGCPORA , Mrs. Rita Obidike and the Administrative officer of VGC Management, Mrs. Amaka.

It became very apparent at the end of the formal launch that VGC needs to offer a very conducive space for their seniors… a place where they can have privacy for counselling and short activities designed to help them in their old age.

We will be having meetings with them twice a week for now.

Here are some pictures of the day:

Hello, this is wishing everyone a lovely week ahead from all of us at the Hope For The Old foundation.

MAY 28 IS OUR MAY DAY @ HFTO.

On May 28, the HFTO CENTRE marked its first anniversary.

Activities were lined up by the old people to welcome our guests and partners.

Theydanced, sang, did a special BEAUTY PARADE as well as FASHION EXPO! It was to say the least, highly impressive.

We used the occasion to appreciate families.  Children came from far and near to CELEBRATE THEIR AGED PARENTS ALIVE.

We thank many of our sponsors who rallied round to support the day.

 

 

OLD AND HELPLESS AT HOME….
