Male and Female residents at the St Georges VI home at Grafton are beneficiaries of food and non-food items from the Adekunle Trust Fund (ATF).

Held over the weekend at Grafton, members of the Adekunle Trust Fund in collaboration with the Deen family distributed 30 parcels of assorted hygiene, clothing and food items to 15 male and 15 female residents aged (60-90) years residing at the home, as a result of various circumstances surrounding their existence.

Home Manager, Christiana John explained to Awoko that the home is finding it difficult to manage the home noting that the administration relies on the goodwill of corporate Institutions and other well-wishers, as a result when food and non-food items run low, God always makes provision through people with a kind heart. “We have made several appeals to Government, but the home is yet to start receiving full support to care for residents, but we commend the private sector and other members of the public”, Christiana noted.

Founder and Executive Director, Adekunle Trust Fund, Alphonso Davies said the gesture was to associate with the residents who found themselves at the home as a result of age and other circumstances. He added that ATF is a charity organization that also depend on other philanthropist to lend a hand to give to others. Alphonso Davies noted that the clothing to residents was made available by the Deen family who admired the work of ATF in remote communities feeding vulnerable children.

Cecil Candy a member of the Deen family during fellowship with residents assured of ATF’s continued support to the home from time to time, now that a bond has been established between the two. “Saving humanity in time of need is the best gift appreciated by God, especially during this lent season, when prayer, fasting, and giving are the three things offered throughout the 40 days of lent”, Candy noted.

A resident of the home who will turn 90 commended the gesture and called on members not to forget the aged, citing that the reflection of the young is seen in the aged.
