Passion To Help Underprivileged Is Our Priority At Omogbolake Foundation- Labake Adeneye

 

 

For Omolabake Adeneye it is not about living a frivolous lifestyle, spending at parties to impress people. One thing that has remained her priority is putting smiles on the faces of the needy. On weekly basis Omolabake gives thousands of naira to her numerous followers on social media and this has endeared her into the hearts of the beneficiaries irrespective of tribes.

 

“Giving is living is my slogan, that’s why I decided to continue where my mother stopped.” Omolabake said.

 

Omogbolake Foundation which has now become an household name didn’t just start overnight and the name was coined putting her mother and her own names together. Her interest is to ensure the less privileged also have the lives of their own.

Just recently, the UK based female entrepreneur and philanthropist gathered over 200 widows as she doled out different gift items, foodstuffs and offer financial assistance. It was a day to remember for the widows in attendance.

 

When asked if she’s doing it for any reason, she explained how her late mother lived all her life caring for humanity.

“It’s a pity mummy could not fulfill her destiny. My mother lived all her life giving to the needy, I must be sincere here that I took after her. I look at this world and agree with the proverb that life is vanity. What’s the essence of that affluence and wealth you acquire when many people out there are suffering. I can’t live to see a fellow human being looking for what to eat when my three square meals are available even with extras. Maybe that’s how God made me to be. I’m not a millionaire, not even up to children of an average Nigerian politician but I’m always heartbroken seeing people suffering.

 

However, it’s going to be a December to Remember again as Omogbolake Foundation is ready to pamper people in hundreds especially the needy .

“We shall be visiting some motherless homes in Lagos and its environs and we are planning to extend this gestures to other parts of the country very soon, our goal is to build a brighter future together.”

 

Omogbolake Foundation started some years ago as an humanitarian organisation with the soul aim of putting smiles on the faces of the needy. In 2021, the charitable organisation was honoured by Africa Leadership Philanthrophy Awards as The Most Outstanding Humanitarian Organisation, Women Affairs. Also in 2022/2023 edition of Toplotech Prominent Personalities & Organisation Award, Omogbolake Foundation for its love and support for humanity was awarded Most Prominent Charitable Organisation.

 

However, the Founder/ Chairperson Omolabake Adeneye who’s fondly called Labby by her close friends has appealed to the Federal Government, individuals and organisations “to render their supports by contributing to our donation drive.

 

“Your generosity will provide essential resources, improve facilities and create a nurturing environment for young minds to thrive,” she concluded.

 

Plan is underway to provide school bags, books, writing materials, mathematical sets etc for students this November at Ojodu Primary School.
