Instead of going to the club to blow thousands on alcohol, and spend without gain, the president of ACORN Foundation for the poor, Mr Etido on December 29,2021 made a stop over at Saint’s Anthony Destitute home, no. 5 Uruan street Uyo to celebrate with the less privileged Children on his nativity Day.
Mr. Etido, a born youth advocate, humanist and philanthropist who is good at giving back to society as a way of thanking his God for preserving his life till date and in good health said items donated were part of activities commemorating his birthday anniversary.
He encourage the children not to look at their current situation as a setback but have confidence that they have a bright future as they were qualified to become important personalities in society if they stayed focus in their endeavors.
While advising them to desist from any form of crime as well as intake of hard drugs stressing that such vices could ruin their chances of leaving the street life and amounting to nothing in the society
In her appreciation, the matron on duty at the Motherless babies home Sister Veronica Edet, thanked the leadership and members of the ACORN Foundation for remembering them and prayed God to reward their effort with prosperity and long life. She promised to put the items donated into judicious use. The children in their own appreciation sang a happy birthday song to the celebrant.
