Akintayo Akintunde, a renowned Philanthropist, has empowered no fewer than 300 elderly women in Ile-oluji community in Ile-oluji/Okeigbo Local Government Area of Ondo State.

The Philanthropist gave the elderly women cash gifts and food items which includes: Rice, Spaghetti, Maggie, Salt and Groundnut oil.

While distributing the food items, Akintayo said the rationale behind the empowerment was to relieve the beneficiaries experiencing the adverse effects of soaring prices of food items occasioned economic downturn.

“In the face of adversity, we chose not to turn a blind eye but to extend a helping hand. The rising cost of essential food items has burdened many, especially our elderly women, who are often the most vulnerable in our communities. It is with this recognition of their struggle that we embarked on a mission to make a tangible difference in their lives.”

“Through our empowerment program, we have not only provided food items to alleviate immediate hunger but also offered financial assistance in the form of cash gifts. These gestures may seem small to some, but to those who receive them, they represent hope, dignity, and a renewed sense of possibility.”

“Beyond the material support, our program embodies a spirit of compassion and solidarity. It is a reminder that we are not alone in our struggles and that together, we can create meaningful change. By coming together as a community, we amplify our collective impact and sow the seeds of a brighter future for all.

“As we reflect on the journey thus far, let us reaffirm our commitment to continue uplifting those in need, especially the elderly women who have paved the way for generations to come. Let us stand united in our resolve to build a more inclusive and equitable society, where no one is left behind.

“I extend my heartfelt gratitude to all who have contributed to the success of our empowerment program. Your generosity, compassion, and unwavering support have made a profound difference in the lives of many. Together, let us continue to be beacons of hope and agents of change in our communities.
