In her speech, Mrs Osinbajo said: “For any country to achieve meaningful development, its citizens must have required necessities to drive the economic potentials. If I was homeless, I wouldn’t have achieved so much in life.
Dr Churchill commended Mrs Uloma Nwosu for embarking on such initiative, it worries me a lot about the level of homelessness we currently have in the country, thank you for being an outstanding pillar of support to the needy, he added.
Mrs Uloma Nwosu who spoke to journalists at Trade & Investment Center Owerri, prior to the launch, said the foundation would focus on four major areas – providing shelter for the homeless, Food Bank Provision, Thrift Store and Counseling.
