Davido’s N250m Orphanage Fund Receives 1,234 Applications ~ PressTv


NO Fewer than 1,234 orphanages have applied for a share of the sum of N250 million the award-winning singer David Adeleke intends to donate to charity.

This much was revealed as Adeleke, popularly known as Davido, took to his Instagram page to give an update on how the said sum would be disbursed and how beneficiaries would be selected.

A time frame of three days had been given for registered orphanages in Nigeria interested in the fund to submit their applications.

Writing on his Instagram page, Davido said: “Verification is ongoing and the report will be out by 15th December.

“Selection and disbursement 18th/19th and the press release should be by 20th Dec.

“1,234 responded; 852 without orphanage names; 382 with orphanage names.

“The national association of orphanages in Nigeria sent the list of orphanage homes within their coverage, which to some extent, is helping us in the verification process.

“God bless. We rise by lifting others.”

The fund to be disbursed had come about as part of Davido’s birthday celebration last month, as he said it was his own way of giving back to the society.

The disbursement of the fund will be supervised by a five-man committee constituted by the singer for that purpose.
