Nothing says Valentines more than a special act of love to those around us.  In the spirit of Valentine’s Day, Medplus took the initiative to show love to the children of Slum2School and the Sogunro community through its foundation, Medplus Cares Foundation. After last year’s impactful with Chess In Slum.

In a commitment to foster love, hope, positive change and community development, Medplus Cares Foundation announced the launch of the “Love in the Slums” outreach in conjunction with Slum2School in the vibrant Sogunro community. 

Slum2School is a volunteer-driven development organization that aims to transform the society by empowering underserved children in slums and remote communities with quality education, entrepreneurial skills, and psychosocial support to enable them to realize their full potential and become social reformers. Slum2School started a revolutionary project to help the children in the slums of Nigeria gain access to education as a way to impact their lives, and transform them into social contributors to the nation. 

The Sogunro outreach initiative is a comprehensive effort by the Medplus Cares Foundation and Slum2School to address key communities in need and provide medical aids to empower its residents. This program includes providing the children with School supplies, testing them for illnesses or ailments, free medical checkups for the children and free distribution of medicines.

On Friday 16th February Medplus Cares Foundation and Slum2School visited the Sogunro community. This day marked the beginning of a transformative journey, as they worked together to bring healthcare, education and hope to the heart of Sogunro.

Ms Joke Bakare MD Medplus mentioned ‘’We are so grateful for this partnership with Slum2School and to be able to help the Sogunro community. We hope to continue fostering positive connections with like minded organizations, and keep showing love to the communities around us.’’

Jemima Osunde stated ‘’I am so excited to be a part of this amazing community project. Medplus has really done a great job of putting this together, and I love what Slum2school represents for children..’’
