Bi-Courtney Aviation Services Limited (BASL), the operator of the Murtala Muhammed Airport Two (MMA2), Lagos, has said that there are great potential among orphanage kids waiting to be tapped.

The Chief Operating Officer, (COO), BASL, Ms. Adebisi Awoniyi, who stated this when she received children from a Lagos-based orphanage, Light for the Lost Orphans Home (LLOH), added that it was part of the organisation’s  demonstration of its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).

Addressing the children and their handlers, Awoniyi, commended the owners of the orphanage for their noble efforts, adding that the society would be better if only the challenges faced by the less privileged are addressed.

According to her, “We can only be sure of having a better society when resources are pulled together to make life meaningful for the less privileged in our neighbourhood. There are great potentials waiting to be harnessed among these kids and it is only reasonable and worthwhile not to allow those potentials to waste away.”

She continued, “The facility tour, coupled with other exposures, will forever remain indelible in their minds. It has opened another vista in their quest for knowledge and this I think will help them as they grow in life and learn more.”

Awoniyi later presented gift items, including foodstuffs, beverages, books and clothing to the visitors on behalf of BASL.

On his part, the orphanage’s founder, Evang. Ebenezer Anyaene, commended the management of BASL for its kind gesture.

He encouraged other corporate organisations and wealthy Nigerians to emulate the gesture by the airport terminal operator, adding that if other companies had been doing this, the challenges of these orphanage kids would be minimised.

Also speaking, the Coordinator of The Divine Eagles Support Ministry, Mr. Sola Ajide, who facilitated the visit by the children, commended BASL for its efforts at promoting the cause of the vulnerable and under-privileged members of the society.

The children, accompanied by their minders, were first taken on a guided tour of the terminal before being hosted to a party at the terminal’s conference hall.

Highlights of the party include fun games, dance competition and career talk.
