Evangelist Adekunbi Akin-Taylor, the owner of Charlie Marie Group of Schools, Likosi in Sagamu, Ogun state, has lightened the burden of many parents.
The proprietor gave out palliatives to 27 of her workers and 100 parents whose children are in her students, she told The Nation.
“I gave all members of staff food palliatives - gari, rice and beans. They were appreciative. My first daughter sponsored the April food palliative; while my other daughter sponsored same for May.
“I did extend palliatives to all parents. I know how hard it will be on them, especially feeding the children. Most of them were struggling to make ends meet even before lockdown,” she said.
She said that some of her students come to school really hungry and giving out the relief materials was her own way of contributing to their parents' welfare in this trying time.
It should be noted that each package contained rice, beans, indomie, oil, salt, biscuit, sweet, and garri.
She said she paid her workers full salary in March and 60% and 70% respectively in April and May respectively.
Olajumoke Amos, a parent, thanked the proprietor for taking care of their needs, saying that despite the fact the woman is not in the country, she still extended her love to them.
Akin-Taylor has not been able to take her school’s learning online because she said parents cannot afford it.
