12 Dec OCI Foundation joins other NGOs to visit Orphanage in Abuja, Nigeria (December 12th, 2020).
On Saturday, the 12th day of December, 2020, the OCI Foundation was part of a coalition of NGOs that visited the Queen Esther Orphanage and Children’s Home in Kabusa, Abuja, the Federal Capital of Nigeria. Food, laundry and bedding items, among other materials, were donated.
The coalition was led by the Comfort Ngumimi Jebe Foundation (CNJF), whose CEO is Mr Jebe Tevershema. On September the 15th, 2019, Mr Tavershima lost his wife, Mrs. Comfort Ngumimi Jebe (32 years old) along with all 3 of his children: David Iorwuese Jebe Junior (10 years old), Jebe Iwueseter Beauty (7 years old) and Jebe Favour Muthel Dooshima (2 years), in a ghastly motor Accident. Since their death, Mr Tavershima has continued the work of the CNJF, which was initially set up by his wife before her death, and have now expanded its activities to assist sufferers of various forms of emergency trauma cases, especially accident victims and their survivors.
