As part of its 7th Anniversary celebration, Konga, Nigeria’s foremost composite e-commerce giant, embarked on a visit to orphanage homes in Lagos and Abuja to spread love to the needy and less-privileged.

The event, which saw Management and staff turn out in their numbers at both locations, was held on Saturday, July 6t, 2019.

The visit was anchored under the auspices of Konga Kares – a Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiative through which the company has identified with and empowered critical segments of the population in need of a helping hand.

With the theme, Sharing the Konga Love to Help Alleviate Poverty, a visit was made simultaneously to the Heritage Orphanage Homes in Lagos as well as the Abuja Children’s Home, Karu and the Christ Foundation Orphanage Home and Widow Outreach, Abuja.

In their numbers, Executive Management and staff of Konga stormed the orphanage homes with household items, consumables, educational materials and other items to support their physical, mental and emotional needs.

Leading the Lagos team was Co-CEO, Konga Group, Prince Nnamdi Ekeh, who did not fail to engage and interact with the children of the Heritage Orphanage.

Ekeh expressed excitement and satisfaction about the visitation, describing his interaction with the children as an overwhelming experience.

“Giving material support is fantastic but providing opportunities and other forms of empowerment is critical.

“You cannot over-emphasise the generational benefits of creating a life-changing platform which focuses on abandoned and vulnerable children who are future leaders.

“We hope to embark on this kind of visitations on a regular basis and also partner with other institutions that are need of encouragement and empowerment such as skill acquisition which will have great impact in transforming their lives,” Ekeh said.

In Abuja, hundreds of lives were touched at both orphanages as the Konga team put smiles on the faces of children at the centres.

Led by Business Manager (North), Yvonne Enwerem games, Konga made it an enriching experience for the children with several fun activities including musical chairs, card games and board games such as Chess, Checkers, Scrabble and Ludo.

Furthermore, a quiz competition was organised for children within the ages of 7 and 17. Winners of the quiz were rewarded with mouth-watering prizes including Kiddies Tablets and writing materials, among others.

Essentially, the visitation did a lot to lift the moods of the children across all the beneficiary homes and imbue them with hope in a brighter future – a point that was not lost on the recipients.

“We are so grateful to the management of Konga for this gesture. The happiness and joy on the faces of the children is proof of how delighted we all are. May God bless Konga and continue to elevate the business,” said an obviously elated Mrs. Agho.

Also speaking, Mrs. Attah who oversees the Abuja Children’s Home expressed deep gratitude to Konga, even as she disclosed that the memories of the visit will remain indelible in the minds of the children.

“I am indeed overwhelmed by this show of love from Konga and so are the kids. In fact, I have never seen them this happy. Our appreciation knows no bounds and our prayer is that Konga reaps bountifully from this gesture,” she said.

Through Konga Kares, the company hopes to reach millions of needy, disadvantaged, physically-challenged and voiceless members of the society nationwide and give back in line with its mission of spreading love and alleviating poverty.
