For many years, the SOS children’s village, Isolo, Lagos State, lacked a good health care centre. All that was available was a makeshift sick bay that barely catered for the health needs of the little children.

Some children lost their lives to preventable deaths, and the situation could not get worse. It got better, as a mere promise manifested into reality. The children’s village now has a standard clinic, and it is all thanks to a charity that decided to put smiles on the faces of the innocent little ones, who has no one to turn to for help.
On a recent Sunday, at the SOS children’s village in Lagos, the Olubukola Adenike Ojurongbe (OAO) foundation showered love to the children by donating a fully equipped clinic. The beneficiaries of their goodwill; children, and by extension, members of the community, who will benefit from the noble project.

At the event, which also had notable personalities in attendance such as, the First Lady of Lagos State, Dame Abimbola Fashola, the National Director of the SOS village, Mr. Eghosa Agbonlahor, amongst others, as well as distinguished men and women who make up the foundation’s Board of Trustees, who had all come to witness the unveiling of the clinic.
It was a time to show care and love to the set of people most neglected in the society, a time to give back to the society, and the foundation showed the way.

Led by the indefatigable founder, Mrs. Olubukola Adenike Ojurongbe, from which the foundation derives its name.
On the day, Ojurongbe in her usual practice, decided not to take any honour for the feat that was accomplished, instead she attributed it to God and to the efforts of the members of the foundation and to the immense support they offered.

As a principle, Ojurongbe has dedicated her life to supporting others, most especially the under privileged in society. True to that principle, she decided on her 50th birthday to set up the foundation, and asked that all the gifts she would receive be directed towards funding the foundation’s project, a multi-million naira health clinic built for the children’s village.
“I was tired of giving rice and biscuits, and cooking oil, that the children would eat, and then it is finished. I said what is your major need here, and they said they are tired of walking children out of this place in the middle of the night to nowhere, when they fall sick, and you know children don’t tell you when they are going to fall sick.
