The O. B. Lulu-Briggs Foundation, one of Nigeria’s leading humanitarian organizations has clocked 20 years of charitable work in the country.
Founded on the 21st of September 2001 by Dr. Mrs. Seinye O. B. Lulu-Briggs, to institutionalize the legendary philanthropy of her husband, celebrated nationalist and statesman, High Chief Dr. O. B. Lulu-Briggs of blessed memory, the foundation has in the last two decades, in alignment with global goals of the United Nations, gone on to leave indelible imprints in the lives of hundreds of thousands of people across the country, especially in communities within Nigeria’s Niger delta region.
With a mission to implement sustainable interventions that enhance the quality of life for under-served persons, the O. B. Lulu-Briggs Foundation continues to offer hope, succour and support to at-risk and vulnerable persons. It achieves its mission through 5 distinct programmes which include its flagship eldercare programme: Care For Life and its Free Medical Mission, a 5 day pop-up health camps held in peri-urban and rural communities.
According to a statement released by Mr. Oraye St. Franklyn, Spokesperson to Dr. Seinye Lulu-Briggs, the Chairman Board of Trustees of the O. B. Lulu-Briggs Foundation, the 20th anniversary celebration would be marked by a series of yearlong events that begin with a thanksgiving service on the 21st of September 2021 at the Chapel of God Int’l worship center in Port Harcourt.
“A one-day Free Eye Clinic will also hold on Thursday the 23rd of September 2021 to offer free eye care to members of the public. Other events lined up for the yearlong celebrations are a Law Clinic scheduled for the 24th of November 2021. The Law Clinic will ride on the back of the foundation’s landmark investments in law education in the last 13 years. It would see members of the Foundation’s Law School Grants Alumni, in the company of legal luminaries, giving back to society through pro bono services on that day,” Oraye revealed.
The statement also enjoined members of the public to take advantage of the free eye clinic for their eye checks and treatment.
The high point of the 20th anniversary celebrations according to Mr. St Franklyn would be an anniversary lecture and gala night to hold in February 2022.
According to him, the gala night would appreciate the volunteers, staff and partners of the foundation who have contributed immensely to its 20-year success. The event would also signpost the direction of the foundation for the next twenty years especially in the face of new and emerging global humanitarian challenges.
