The Insurance students of the Redeemer's University have donated gifts worth several thousands of naira to Hope Villa Orphanage Home in Akute, Lagos, as part of the activities to mark its annual Insurance Week recently.

The Insurance students' gesture was borne out of the need to impact their environment by helping orphans, one of the most vulnerable members of society.

Responding to the donation made by the students, the founder of Hope Villa Orphanage Home, Pastor A. O. Atunde, stated that the home has been enjoying the support of kind-hearted Nigerians and organizations through their  donations in cash and kind.

He thanked the students for their generosity to the home and appreciated them for taking time out to remember the less-privileged.

While speaking on the modalities for the adoption of children in the home, he advised foster parents to adopt children within the age of  two years. "People who come for adoption of children fill forms. The children have opportunities to stay here till they can stand on their own, emotionally, financially and spiritually. They don't compel the independent children or adults to bring a percentage of their salaries," he added.

He advocated for more financial intervention from government and well-meaning Nigerians in the provision of daily needs for the children in the home.
