The Embassy of the United States of America in Nigeria has commended the initiative of Dorian Home for Charity and Social Development situated in Akure, Akure South Local Government Area of Ondo State.

Mr Aruna Amirthanayagam, the Counselor for Public Affairs of the US embassy in Nigeria, gave the commendation on Friday during his visit to the charity home.

The home, which is almost completed, has the capacity to cater for 600 babies at a time,targetting 0 to 10 years old orphans, and it is being built by an indigene of the town, who preferred anonymity.

” This initiative is very commendable and I have never seen this in the country, even in Africa. I have been to different states in Nigeria in the last three years and I have seen different projects, but this is different.

“I am a testimony to this generosity and commitment of one individual and I wish it is successful,” Amirthanayagam said.
