First Visit to NKST Orphanage Home, Mkar
The Francisca Mlumun Ordega Foundation (FMOF) first visited the NKST Orphanage on 16th May 2012. The orphanage which has been renamed the NKST Foundation, Mkar was established in 1940 at Sev-Av, Tombo in the present-day Buruku Local Government Area of Benue State and was later relocated in 1953 to its present location in Mkar, Gboko Local Government Area.
Like any orphanage, the home comprises mainly of toddlers, children and young adults. The home depends mainly on the goodwill of philanthropists.
Moved by their plight and as a way of giving back to the society and in keeping to the core aims of the Foundation, the FMOF visited the home and donated the following items;
- Two (2) prickly heat powder
- One (1) Johnson baby powder
- Three (3) cartons of Indomie noodles
- Three (3) cartons of cabin biscuits
- Two (2) big sachets of washing detergent
- One (1) carton of bar soap
The Director of the Orphanage, Reverend G.O. Uva who received the members of the Foundation that were led by Francisca Mlumun Ordega, commended the efforts of the Foundation and prayed to God to bless the rising football star who is doing Benue State proud.
Thereafter, Francisca Ordega interacted with the children whose joy knew no bound.
