Just few days after her birthday, the much talked about ongoing distribution of food palliatives by Dr Siju Iluyomade of Arise Women, tagged; Arise Pink Bucket, has again moved to Ikeja and Ajegunle area of Lagos State in continuation of the act of giving succor to the needy.
The initiative is part of Arise activities in celebration of its 12th anniversary of impacting many lives across the country through different empowerment, skill acquisition, enlightenment programmes and so many activities to support the effort of government.
Earlier during the week, the team stormed Murtala Muhammed area of Ikeja, Lagos Airport, where over 1000 of the Pink Buckets were distributed for people.
The Ikeja distribution of the goodies was dedicated to the soul of one of the prominent handlers of Arise Women activities, Mr Bolaji Salu who died a couple of weeks ago.
Over the weekend, over 2000 of the Arise Pink Buckets were distributed at Ajegunle, in Apapa area of Lagos.
The Arise Pink Buckets comprise food stuffs like rice, spaghetti, groundnut oil, tomato paste etc.
The distribution in Ikeja and Ajegunle followed the earlier ones distributed in Lagos Island, Surulere, Epe and other communities in the State.
Expressing joy and appreciation over the gesture, some of the beneficiaries showered encomium on Dr Iluyomade and the Arise team for the gesture, while also urging other well meaning individuals and bodies to emulate the yeoman’s job spearheaded by the delectable lawyer of 35years of experience.
