A not-for-profit organisation in Nigeria, Worship4Change, has said it plans to raise N75m for indigent children with special needs through a concert in Lagos.
The organisation also called on corporate organisations to support the cause by attending a free concert and donate towards meeting the objectives.
A statement said the Convener and Chief Responsibility Officer, Worship4Change, Pastor Wale Adenuga, announced this at a pre-concert press briefing in Iganmu, Lagos.
While noting it would take place in October, he said it would have in attendance leading gospel acts from Nigeria and United States, including Nathaniel Bassey, Dunsin Oyekan, Panam Percy Paul, Bob Fitts, Moses Bliss, Victoria Orenze and 121 Selah.
Adenuga called on interested individuals and corporate organisations to register to attend.
He said, “One key additional feature to this year’s event is that we are not just focusing on the event day for donations, we are earmarking the entire month to receive, solicit for and receive donations.
“In addition to taking donations at this year’s benefit concert, we are making the October a month of giving and our hope is that this campaign will enable us to raise robust support for the children we seek to help.”
He added, “We plan to surpass what we raised last year by raising N75m. This amount will go a long way in meeting the needs of the five selected beneficiaries for the Green Worship 5.”
The Founder of Puresouls Learning Foundation, Mrs Dotun Akande, whose foundation engages and supports indigent children living with autism, appreciated the efforts of Worship4Change.
