Singler Lami adopts orphanage

Soul singer, Lami Philips, did something quite unusual and grand. In a spontaneous act of kindness, she adopted an entire orphanage.

The orphanage, the Nigerian Red Cross Society, Motherless Babies' is located at Makoko, Adekunle, Lagos and has been in existence for more than 25 years.

The  UN ambassador decided to adopt the orphanage as her pet project after visiting the home and seeing the situation on ground. Lami spoke briefly on the development

"I have been seeking to support a specific cause in the society and have considered a number of institutions. But when I visited the Nigerian Red Cross Society, Motherless Babies' Home, Makoko and shared experiences with the kids, my heart settled on them." 

The adoption is done through her NGO BeTheChange and she intends to use her large circle of friends to raise the much-needed funds to ensure that the children get a better life than the one they are presently forced to.

Her activities would include monthly gigs whose proceeds would go towards the upkeep of the place and she also hopes that other celebrities, especially those with NGOs would come on board or take up similar causes in the society.
