A Non-Governmental Organisation, NGO, known as NISSI Foundation and based in Ekiti State, has empowered about 150 widows and aged people in the State during its December 2023 Outreach with a charge to them to raise their wards properly. 

The programme, which was held at the main hall of the old Governor’s Office in Ado Ekiti to mark the 10th anniversary and the 4th series meant for the Public Service category witnessed two nominees from each MDAs in Ekiti state benefitting. 

The President of the NISSI Foundation, Mrs Oyeyemi Kayode Ojo while speaking, explained that the programme was organized through her own experience while growing up having been raised by a widow said the move was a way to give back to the society and to keep the instruction of God about caring for the needy in the neighborhood.

We are showing love and encouraging the elderly ones about their health and other challenges that they might be facing while we also use the avenue to remind them to lean on God alone for support.

We have three categories for this program every year, the one for the Church which comes in the mid-year, the one for the public sector and the visitation to some areas where we have a lot of old people to reach out to within the state, particularly in Ado Ekiti metropolis such as Irona, Odo Ado, Ojudo, and other parts of the State capital where you one can find real old people who can hardly go out again. 

She charged the beneficiaries not to lose hope noting that the fact that they lost their husbands does not warrant that they neglect their children. 

She charged them to brace up, take care of their health and see how they can also impact the society positively. 

The aged also must be conscious of the proper management of their bodies and follow the instructions of the health practitioners on nutrition and food intake to enjoy good health. 

She assured them that God’s blessings are awaiting them as long as they hope in God because age is no barrier to what God can do. 

Speaking on the theme of the programme, she charged them to be a blessing within their capacities by reaching out to others whose conditions are more critical than theirs.

She noted, that, by doing that, more people would be impacted. She lauded the various contributions and support received from people. 

She commended the selfless service of Mr Tope Ogundare and other notable friends towards the success of the programme.

In his sermon, Pastor Taiwo Ajobiewe who spoke on the theme of the 2023 outreach, “Blessing Even In Old Age”, gave various biblical examples to show that age does not matter when God is at work.  He charged the participants to keep having faith in God with prayers. 

He also charged them to take cues from the foundation and reach out to other people in critical conditions. 

The programme also featured a health talk by Mrs Funke Martins – Adetoye who spoke extensively on the menopausal and andropausal symptoms. 

She emphasized on the need to take enough water, regular exercise, cultivate the habit of eating well and rightly, avoiding in-between meals, noting that regular medical checks must not be taken for granted. 

According to her, Christians must apply knowledge to faith to avoid illnesses going beyond control. 

The husband of the Founder and President of the NISSI foundation, Mr Kayode Ojo who presided over the prayer session called on privileged people in the society to always remember those in need. 

Meal packaged and raw food items were given to the participants. Some of the beneficiaries thanked the Foundation for the timely assistance they always received while they prayed for more grace over the President and founder of the NGO.
