Worried about the prevalence of water-borne diseases, such as ring worms and typhoid fever among others, a non governmental organization has vowed to eradicate the diseases, which have become endemic in the country.
According to the Founder/Head of FKO Foundation, Mr. Folawiyo Kareem Hassan-Olajoku, the objective of his NGO is to “provide clean and portable water to thousands of communities so as to positively impact the lives of the people of those communities in their quest for better living conditions.”
He said his organization was deeply concerned about avoidable deaths recorded especially in the rural areas in the country over the years due to water-related diseases and assured that his “Desire was to reduce ignorance among the people, expose them to better community health management, while partnering with the federal, states and local government in Nigeria.”
Hassan-Olajoku said that his involvement in the Osun State’s Calisthenics Implementation Committee, set up by Governor Rauf Aregbesola was to contribute to the inculcation of teamwork and team spirit in the youths with a view to empowering them for national development.
He said his organization would soon set up Alabi Hassan-Olajoku School of Management and Financial Studies to immortalize his late father, Alhaji Alabi Hassan-Olajoku and to enhance capacity building among the youths in the country.
He urged young enterprising Nigerians to muster the courage to set up organizations like his with a view to contributing to the development of the Nigerian society, especially in the areas of employment, poverty reduction and capacity building.No tags for this post.
