A young philanthropist, Mr. Scott Tommey has stated that it is important to give to the less privileged in the society. He made this disclosure during the annual outreach to the less privileged organized by GLOBAL INITIATIVE FOR PEACE, LOVE & CARE (GIPLC) (which was founded by Nuhu Kwajafa).
He made this statement while speaking to newsmen at the occasion. He said he was touched to give because he knew what it was like to live in lack. “I came from a humble background and I know what is like to be on the other side of life”, he said. Mr. Scott Tommey said he would make more donations as he felt there is the need to touch more lives.
The founder of the NGO, Mr. Nuhu Kwajafa said he was moved to establish the foundation because of level of poverty that is prevalent in the society. He said it gives him joy to impact on people’s lives. He captures it thus; “Life has been interesting since I started GIPLC because I look at it like a cash register, in that every account, every thought, every deed, like every sale is registered and recorded. The best use of life is to spend it for something that will outlive life itself. I believe at my age I have lived half my life for myself. Right now am dedicating the remaining half for humanity”.
One of Nuhu’s friends, Igho Charles Sanomi, the youngest millionaire in Africa (according to unconfirmed source) who donated generously at the occasion said that it is good to show love to the less privileged, and also to share with them. He asserted that the showing them love will help to put them off the street.
The NGO donated a lot of items to the less privileged including wheelchair, food items etc. The high point of the occasion was the donation of over ten million naira for the treatment of kidney failure of one boy whose parents could not afford the cost in an India hospital.
