31 Dec A Wish Granted: Christmas with the Wishmaker
Christmas season is always a time to give and the wishwall foundation extended their hand of love and giving to 4 vulnerable homes in Ibadan, South West Nigeria. We visited: Network for inclusion of people with special needs, (NIPSON) Ibadan,Oluyole Chesire Home, Ibadan, Vanguard Vocational centre for people living with disabilities, Ibadan and His Heritage home.
NIPSON HOME, was the farthest so we had to visit there on the 22nd December, 2021. We were well received. We presented our food gifts . We then gave the individual wrapped gifts to the recipients of the home. The owner of the home, Mrs Sekinat couldn’t hide her joy about the personalised item and she made a comment about it in particular.They sang for us, and we interacted with them for some minutes before our departure. We were allowed to take pictures of the recipients and capture their excitement as they received their gifts.
On the 24th December, the set date for project Christmas with the Wishmaker, we visited Oluyole Chesire Home, His Heritage home. We couldn’t take the pictures of the kids but they were super excited and happy that we visited. The children loved their gifts and the management also appreciated the food gifts we brought along. The Wishwall Founder was appreciated and given an Appreciation Letter.
We had an amazing time at the Vanguard Vocational centre for people living with disabilities. We were given a grand welcome and addressed the members of the home that they shouldn’t see their disabilities as inabilities, but an opportunity to impacting the world in their special way. They appreciated the gift received.
It was an amazing time to show love to children and adults in vulnerable homes, it wasn’t a usual stance they get to experience someone showing love to them by gifting them personalize item. A big appreciation to the Wishwall Foundation Founder, Ms Simonetta Lein for her kind gesture and making this year Christmas memorable. We hope to have you grant more of our wishes in the coming year. Thank you.
