A charity organization, Daniel Ogechi Akujobi Memorial (DOAM) Foundation, has dewormed vulnerable children in Lagos and Ogun states to enhance their growth and health.

In a two-day outreach held at Out of School Children Centre, Oshodi, Magnificent Therapy Center & Home for Children, Yaba and Christ the Light of Hope Orphanage Home, Akute, multivitamins and other micro-nutrients were also administered on the children to help alleviate some of the healthcare challenges, such as malnutrition and wasting.

The foundation’s programme Officer for Health, Catherine Olukotun, disclosed that the outreach was part of activities marking this year’s Children’s Day. Other activities, she added, included sensitizing citizens on the need for routine de-worming, intake of vitamins, supplements and advantages of physical exercises to combat gastrointestinal worms and boost the immunity of children against infections.
