- The ponzi scheme said it is committed to putting smile on faces of Nigerians
- The school applauded MMM for the good gesture
The popular Ponzi scheme, Mavrodi Mundial Movement (MMM), has brought smile to the faces of children as it donates food items, gifts to Igbehinadun Special School for the Deaf & Dumb and physically Challenged Children.
The Nation reports that MMM in conjunction with Life Changing Humanitarian Services visited the school on Saturday, April 8 in Okokomaiko, Lagos and unveiled a rehabilitated playing ground and basketball court
They also presented food items, beds and gifts to the children.
Amaka Benson who is the offline secretary & events manager for MMM Charity said the Ponzi sceme was out to put smiles on the faces of Nigerians.
She said: “We were brought here by Community Development Workers called Life Changing Humanitarian Services. They wrote a letter to us and we approved it to help them carry out some of their projects.
“Today we are unveiling a new playground with swings for the children including a basketball court. This place was nothing to write home about, It had been abandoned and the kids had nowhere to play so we raised money to assist them. Basically, at MMM, we are out to put smiles on the faces of people and we do this every month across Nigeria.”
Mr O. Joseph of Life Changing Humanitarian Service said: “Life Changing Carries out humanitarian services. We chose this school because we believe that Igbeyi Adun Special School needs help. They have been abandoned for years so we came in here to see what we can do for them. You need to see the condition of some of the children, it is very terrible.
“We want to say a big thank you to MMM. We were shocked when they agreed to sponsor this project because many organisations turned us down.”
Mrs Victoria Cotonu who is the founder of the school said it was focused on challenged children.
She said: “After my training in America and the UK, I came back to Nigeria and founded this school. I realised that we have these children in our midst and we have to cater to them because they are part of society.
“We used to have support from government, churches and individuals but since the recession, it has taken a down turn and this has affected us negatively. I appreciate what MMM has done through Life Changing Humanitarian Services today. Only God can reward them. God will continue to bless guide and protect you and reward you abundantly.”
