Dennis Aikoriogie Foundation, a Non Governmental Organization (NGO) dedicated to meeting the needs of the less privileged as well as providing humanitarian services has organized a Christmas party for children drawn from 24 Orphanage homes in Benin City, the Edo State Capital. The party held at the Edo State Secretariat, on 27th of December, 2021.

The event organized in collaboration with the Edo State Ministry of Social Development and Gender Issues saw the children experiencing the joy of Christmas as they were treated to a variety of fun games and Christmas thrills like Santa Claus and other side attractions such as bouncing castles and popular cartoon characters. 

The Commissioner, Ministry of Social Development and Gender Issues, Hon. Mrs Maria Edeko, thanked the founder of Dennis Aikoriogie Foundation, Mr Dennis Aikoriogie, for putting together an excellent party for the children. She called for more good hearts in the state to emulate the founder.

According to her, "The Dennis Aikoriogie Foundation has done well for organizing this event in collaboration with Edo State Ministry of Social Development and Gender Issues. You can see the smiles in the faces of the children. I call on other kind hearted individuals to take up the challenge to do good to the less privileged. 

She continued, "Orphanages is not a business. It is charity. I want to sound a note of warning to individuals who take up orphanages as a business to desist from it as Edo State Government under Governor Godwin Obaseki does not take the lives of these little children for granted. We will close down any orphanage home found wanting."

A representative of Dennis Aikoriogie, Dr Williams Ihoeghinlan, stated that Dennis Aikoriogie Foundation is dedicated to putting smiles on the faces of the less privileged in the society as their welfare is the priority of the founder. He added that the foundation has engaged in several humanitarian activities like organizing free medical outreaches and paying of tuition of those that cannot afford it. 

The children were gifted items such as school bags, toys and other school essentials. Participants of the various games and dance competition took home exciting prizes. The children also had a lot to eat and drink. 

The visibly elated children thanked the founder of the Dennis Aikoriogie Foundation for putting smiles in the faces of the less privileged in the society. One of the children, Doris Albert, extolled Dennis Aikoriogie, stating that the Christmas party has made them happy, adding that the gifts will enable them have a smooth school resumption.

The event was attended by proprietors of various orphanage homes in Benin City, members of the Clergy as well as staff of Edo State Ministry of Social Development and Gender Issues.
