Valentine's Day Orphanage Visit at Ibadan: First video, pictures and how we connected with the kids.

in charity •  9 months ago


I posted earlier of my visit to Ibadan and plans to join the team to visit the Jesus Children Mission Home, JCM orphanage and these are first photos and video from the visit.

First of, it was a fulfilling experience having to be there to be part of their lives on this day that love is preached and perceived as the order of the day.

The Ibadan Steem community are an amazing breed, and the organizers put together this event with so much love that the moment we entered the home, we immediately connected with the children. And of course we came bearing some goodies.

Unlike the Government Orphanage Home I visited in Ikot Ekpene with the FETCH team, this one was more sane and the children were actually being well catered for. I didn't cry and no one in the team cried because we were smiling all the way.


I Feel Blessed!


At the orphanage I had an amazing time and was able to connect for the first time with more Steemians like @Mosunomotunde and her lovely daughters, @Arogboolabisi, @Stacey31, @Deronke, @Olawalium, @Bisodun, @fadiji09 @Aristokratos, @Gloviss34 and @Olufisayo. @Tojukaka @Phait, @Adejoke16 and @Fisteganos were also there.


My Valentine day celebration was complete with this visit and looking back now, I think we need to give more to society so we are able to truly leave lasting imprints on the sands of time.


There was this time the children sang and I was like, waoo!!

Watch out for the video where these lovely angels sang.


I had fun with the less privileged today and I am still relieving the moments because it just makes sense to be a part of someone's life and really do some good.
More Photos.

Point, I agree with you @ejema et al are doing great

This is really heart warming @ejemai. What better way to celebrate valentine's day.
God bless u sir

Thats the real spirit, we all have to do such contribution to the society, and if anyone has no money to contribute in such way, then it will not just be done in shape of money and to fulfil the needs of those little orphans, there are many ways to contribution, if we just spent some time with them, that makes them enough pleased.
Ejemai i really glad what you did today, thats the real thing which that day made for, I encourage to others to do the same things as Ejemai did, make yourself lovable for the happiness of someone, thanks for your great and epic contribution, its really appreciative, i love those things to do ever, keep sharing and keep in touch,
Steem On

upvote and resteemit done dear......
keep it on...

It's a remarkable experience meeting with you @ejemai, you inspired me and shed light to secrets. Thank you sir

It's such a beautiful thing giving back to the community! A very good way to celebrate the significance of Feb14! Kudos to the team

I love the way you celebrated your Val.

Instead of being sad, it’s good to hear that your visit had ended up with of joys and smiles. Social visit at the orphanage involves lots of emotional feelings and the probability of crying is usually high.

This is definitely the more appropriate way to express love on Valentine’s Day, not just by spending time with your couple but by giving something even bigger and meaningful to the more deserve people like the orphans community. I admire your good deed.

Wow!!
This is so thoughtful of you sir.
More grace to you for more good works.

I've been challenged

God bless your heart sir.
Thank you for all you for us.
