The Director of Programs for FoodClique Tomi Sadiq was full of encomium for the young students while accepting the food items. “We are so grateful to the students of St Saviours School Ikoyi for holding this food drive to support hungry children and their families who go to bed hungry every night in a country as blessed as ours.”
He further stated that “It was indeed heart warming to see kids give to help their peers who are disadvantaged and this act of charity stands to make a difference in their lives going forward”
He concluded by emphasising the role of charitable acts and donations especially from young and enjoined parents, public and private sector organisations to support FoodClique Support Initiative in its quest to creating a world where no child goes hungry.
