Some members of the management team and staff of Midwestern Oil & Gas spent time visiting the children of Heritage Homes Orphanage, Anthony, and Arrows of God Orphanage, Ajah on Wednesday the 22nd and Thursday the 23rd of January respectively.
The Midwestern delegate to the Heritage Homes Orphanage on Wednesday was led by Yemi Koleosho, Head of Finance & Commercial. The team included Omatsola Ogbemi, Love Uchegbu, Adejoke Oyebanji-Umaigba, Omoefe Udom & Jumoke Lawal.
The team was received by the Manager of the Home who told us about the history of the facility while showing us around. We met some of the children especially the ones who were either too young to go to school or did not have sponsors yet for their education. Situated in a calm environment in Anthony, the Home serves as the home to 23 motherless children.
On Thursday, Oluwakemi Uddin, Head of Budget & Planning led a team comprising of Love Uchegbu, Tunmise Adekoya, Kelechi Ezem & Jumoke Lawal to the Arrows of God Orphanage, Ajah.
We were shown around the Home by Mrs Deborah O. the Daughter of the Founder who doubles as the Director of the Orphanage. She told us of the history as well as the numerous achievements of the Orphanage which includes but is not limited to having some of their highly intelligent children in various international high schools like Day Waterman College, Abeokuta and St. Francis Catholic Secondary School, Idimu.
