“I am here to encourage people to adopt, to bring these children into their home for a few months to show them love, to bring them into their family.

“They did not choose to be in the situation they are in, but Allah chose you to be the one to lighten their load, support them and show them love.

Getting more people to care and understand that these young children, if neglected, become easy targets for violent extremism, where radicals can easily recruit them.

“They are vulnerable and easily influenced and we have to start to realize that if we ignore them and what we feel is someone else’s problem will end up being our problem,” he said.

Lemu also called on the government to implement policies and programs that protect the lives of children and ensure that their rights are protected.

Abiola Abdulrasheed

Ms. Abiola Abdulrasheed, Vice President of the organization, said that Hala Children’s Home is an Islamic-oriented children’s home to rehabilitate and reintegrate orphans and vulnerable children into society.

Abdulrasheed insisted on the need for each individual to make the world a better place by ridding themselves of ills, helping the underprivileged and developing society.

“We must not make them feel as if they are responsible for what fate has bestowed upon them.

“All children need a home, someone to look up to, someone to be responsible for, if you talk to any of these children who are having problems now, they will tell you that nobody told them what to do, how to do it.

“Having a father and mother figure goes a long way in raising a good child,” she said.

According to her, they have a school, a skills acquisition center and designed a path for the children to reintegrate into society.

Sheikh Abu Mazeeda

For his part, Sheikh Abu Mazeeda, rector of the Abuja International Institute of Islamic Therapy, encouraged the public to adhere to the teachings of Islam for the underprivileged.

He said that no one was disadvantaged as an orphan since Islam admonished everyone to take care of them.

“When you pick up these children, house them, dress them, take care of them and take them to live with your children, Allah’s mercy will follow the family.

“And the house will be filled with the mercy of Allah, which is why these sisters have chosen to do this and we have also decided to support them,” she said.

Other highlights of the events were free medical consultation and lectures.
