A Non Governmental Organization, All In Islam Foundation, on Sunday, distributed 400 footwears to vulnerable children in Kaduna metropolis.

Nigeria News Agency reports that the Foundation also distributed detergents, clothes, socks, snacks and cash stipends to the vulnerable children.

The Chief Executive Officer of the Foundation, Ms Raliya Lere, said that the gesture was to enable the vulnerable children roaming the streets of Kaduna to have a sense of belonging.

Lere also said that the organisation felt the need to distribute footwears owing to the fact that the harmattan season accompanied by harsh temperature that resulted in feet cracks.

“The hash tag of the excercise, ‘Protect the leg’, would be carried out yearly during the hamatan season, the essence is to achieve a society that has less of shoeless children walking around our streets.

“Pair of shoes will ensure a child’s feet are protected from infection and injuries, our Foundation had pondered this and settled on the procurement and distribution of footwears to the vulnerable children walking bare-footed.

“By the grace of God, upon the huge success recorded in this exercise and subsequent ones, we are planning another one next harmattan season.

“We are planning to distribute not less than 5,000 footwears, cardigans and socks to the vulnerable across the state and orphanages in Kaduna”, Lere said.

Co-founder of the foundation, Abdulgafar Uthman, said that the distribution centres which includes Kano road; Katsina road, Ibrahim Taiwo road, Zaria Road among others were chosen because of the high concentration of underaged vulnerable children.

Uthman also noted that the excercise was planned as an annual event and would continue as such, by God’s grace, to touch as many vulnerable children as possible in the streets of Kaduna.

“The Foundation has a burning desire to touch the lives of the less privileged and vulnerable in the society, as such other initiative will be carried out continuously all through the year”, he said.
