-Reaching out to the Young (Charity Tour)-
To mark the Children’s Day celebration on May 27, a Charity Tour for children and orphans in particular, was carried out in the city of Calabar, Cross River State, Nigeria. This was organized by an initiative called, Child Rights and You (CRY).
Mr Michael Nsan, Founder and National Coordinator of a charity organization, Child Rights and You (CRY), runs an initiative that “advocates for the Rights of Children, Right to Life, Right to Love and be Loved, Right to Health Care, Education, Training, and Happiness.”
In their branded T-Shirt, Mr Nsan and his team embarked on the Charity Tour which took them across the beautiful city of Calabar with loads of food stuff and gift items for the children.
The Tour bus picked up children and orphans at various orphanages across town. The first stop was at Galapunya Orphanage and next was at CPN Orphanage.
The tour, which turned out to be an exciting one for the children, also included a motivational talk and teaching on Mary Slessor, a great missionary to Africa.
Her first missionary work was “to save the babies that were to be killed or exposed to death. …She succeeded in saving also many of the poor mothers who were to be killed, and these together with the children she instructed in the Christian religion”. She is known to have stopped the killing of twin babies.
The children also paid a visit to the Nigerian Navy.
Catering for the younger generation who look up to us for care, love, guidance and inspiration is an obligation older persons owe the young, dependent, less priviledged and upcoming leaders in our society.
These are the ones who hold our tomorrow, but they need our care, attention and love today.
Please read below Mr Mike Nsan’s feedback on the Charity Tour:
Our event, The Charity TOUR was a huge success!
You needed to see the kids… I’m still at a loss of words to describe their excitement.
They are always confined and have no idea what an outing is. To them, it was strange, and they were amused, curious, and fevers pitch excited…
Finally, I say a very Big Thank you to you all.
