BEFTA award-winner and Rave TV presenter, Kevwe Ogunje, in conjunction with Ofure Global International Services recently feted kids living with Down Syndrome as part of activities marking his birthday.
The event took place at Down Syndrome Foundation Secretariat, Surulere, Lagos. He also donated food items to the inmates.
Speaking on what inspired his decision to put smiles on faces of the kids, Kevwe said: “When you get to a certain level in life you realize that even if you don’t have too much, you need to start reaching out to the less privileged. The objective is to show the kids that they are loved and truly cherished. The difference between the rest of us and these kids is just one chromosome.
“Most times people see orphanage homes as the only place where people need relief but they forget that children with Down Syndrome need special care and love. We need to integrate them into society,” the Ofure Global Holdings Ambassador said.
Muyiwa Majekodunmi, Coordinator, Down Syndrome Foundation Nigeria said: “God bless you and your family. I want to thank Kevwe Ogunje and Ofure Global Holdings for choosing to celebrate with the kids. We are looking forward to a wonderful relationship with you. We have a maxim here which says ‘accept, educate and inspire.’ It is about giving them opportunities to work as dancers in your music videos and acting in your movies. Please give them opportunities to work and showcase their talent.
