The organizer, Dr. Oni Gbolabo in collaboration with some donors was able to pay the school fees of all pupils in his care, namely: A boy in Ìgbájo, a girl in Paceli School for the Blind and 8 other pupils in Ilesa including their school fees,  hostel fees and provisions required. The school fee for the lady in Federal College of Education and other needs are catered for as well including her bi-weekly upkeep.

"We believe that mentally challenged kids are a gift of god and they are capable of leading a life just like normal kids.

"We used the opportunity to deliver the hotel wears donated by Omo Ijesha and Olarewaju Gbangbala to all pupils living in the Hostel, endless appreciation.

"We used the same opportunity to deliver the school uniforms sponsored by T.A. the first set had been delivered and the remaining ones are delivered today.

"So also, all 4 elderly men and women who are blind are paid their N5,000 stipends.

"I must acknowledge Provost Olajide Enitan of Omofe Cathedral who gave a bag of rice in December which was used for the Children Day Party."
