Beautiful and fast-rising Nollywood actress, Colette Orji, has shown she is not just a piece of beautiful body and sexy curves, she is a beauty with a load of heart. Or how else would you describe her reaching out to the special people on her birthday as part of the celebration.
Maybe, a lot of Nollywood people are coming out of the wood to do that these days, for one reason or the other. But this Cameroonian bred Nigerian actress has always told anyone who would listen that she could not stand the sight of people down on their luck.
Long before she came up with the idea of launching an NGO to be an official body in catering to this her secret yearning, Coco, as she is called by friends has been reaching out to the needy. The one she did in Abuja a couple of years ago caught the attention of people and even then, it was just a spur-of-the-moment caper for her and a few friends who hopped on the drive. They visited homes, donating relief goods.
Now on her birthday, Coco has done it the special way by launching her own NGO, known as ‘Coco Medicare Foundation’ to care and manage people with medical conditions beyond their capacity to handle, either financially or otherwise.
