Christmas: Orphanages lament low gifts


Orphanages across the country have said that the gifts they received during this Christmas season are lower compared to previous years.

Pointing at the economic recession in the country as responsible for this, they expressed worry that poor donations to their homes could lead to hunger among children.

The Administrator, Hope Orphanage in Ilorin, Kwara State, Mrs. Grace Yeye, told Saturday Punch that the volume of gifts to the foundation had reduced by 30 per cent in the last one year.

Yeye said that 2016 had been a difficult year for the home.
