China calls for improved health, well-being of orphans
The wife of the Chinese Ambassador to Nigeria, Liang Huili, has called for action on the health and well-being of orphans across the world. She made this known during her visit to an orphanage home, Victorine Home for Children in Abuja.
Speaking on the theme, ‘Warm Children’s Hearts, a China-Africa joint action’, the Ambassador’s wife said China is ready to work with Africa, including Nigeria to improve the well-being of orphans, as well as build a stronger China-Africa relationship.
Huili said,”On behalf Chinese government, I want to donate love packages to the beloved Children, as a symbol of our efforts to keep the fire of love burning. I hope this could convey warmth and care to the children and help them grow up healthily and live happily.
“China is ready to work with our Nigerian friends to encourage all parties to take actions to improve the health and well-being of African orphans and contribute more to build the China-Africa community with a shared future.
“We hope that children can get more help and they can grow and secure the future of the country. We took time to select what the children need for their studies because it can change the fate of the children. They need more love and we hope for a bright future. China and Nigeria have a lot of collaboration and we hope to continue with our friendship,” she added.
The Matron of the Orphanage Home, Jovita Nzeduru, expressed gratitude to the Chinese Embassy, noting that it takes a lot for the home to cater to the needs of the children.
She said, “We thank the Chinese Embassy for this. There are 25 children in his Home. We have been catering for the well-being of the children. However, funding has been a major challenge because we send them to school. We feed and clothe them as well,” she stated.
