Christian Botany Students Visit Covenant Orphanage Home

The body of Christian students of the Department of Botany, Obafemi Awolowo University on Sunday visited the Covenant Orphanage Home in Moro, Osun state to reach out to the children there.

The Botany Students’ Christian Fellowship (BSCF) in her usual manner was again in Moro with scores of her members to have a nice time with the children there and also to give to the Orphanage home. The children were treated to a great delight as the event set them on a high to participate in various fun-filled programmes including riddles & jokes and quizzes. These children rejoicingly told their visitors and aspirations not minding their current circumstances. “My name is Oluwasanjo, I want to become a Pharmacist” One of the children opened up.

The President and Coordinator of BSCF, Samuel Alabi while giving his charge to the children encouraged them to see themselves beyond their current state as the outside world cannot wait to see their manifestations in no time.

“These are some things in our lives that we cannot control. I want to tell you that you are not the only one in this journey, we all have our stories”

He however prayed for the children that the giant lying in their lives will rise. The woman in charge of the Home, Mrs E. O. Oroyomi in her words appreciated the Christian botany students for sparing their time to come and bless them spiritually and materially. She also referred back to the time she was young as she was always visiting orphanage homes the way the botany students do, not knowing God was preparing her to set up something like this.

BSCF Sisters’ Coordinator and Chairperson of the Orphanage Home Visitation Committee, Temitope Olatunji in her Vote of Thanks remark appreciated God, the Home, lecturers of botany department that supported the project, all executive members of BSCF and all students of OAU who were part of the trip for their time and sacrifice. The event came to a close with a photo session where everyone joyously participated.
