The little Nigerian woman has made a positive contribution to the development of her company by raising £ 200 (over £ 100,000) for charity.
According to NAN, 11-year-old Nigerian student living in the UK, Fodun Olanrewaju raised money through fundraising to support a charity hospital for patients with disabilities in her area.
Ms. Olanrewaju said in a telephone interview to a Nigerian news agency in Lagos on Friday that she raised funds by setting up a GoFundMe page with the help of her parents.
He said the money was raised to help the Lewisham and Greenwich National Health Service, NHS, trust fund.
“Since 2020, things have not been easy, and I thought that some people will not have the opportunity to meet their families and friends due to the COVID-19 blockade, especially with children with disabilities.
“I am shocked and grateful to those who supported my fundraising campaign.
“I hope to continue to make changes in my community and make parents and school proud of it,” she said.
Miss Olanrewaju advised people to strive to change the world for the better by always showing love and care for their fellows and communities.
Fodun’s father, Olanrewaju Sharafa, said he is very proud of her for caring so much about other people and making a positive contribution to her community.
“All of Fodong’s friends and family are so happy and proud of her. It touches me that she constantly wants to influence society.
“We hope that he will enter the list of candidates for the mayor’s title and win,” added Sharafa.
NAN reports that Fodun is a six-year student and prefect of St. Matthew’s Academy in Blackheath, London.
