Saints care is a humanitarian initiative of the Saints FC designed to give back to the society. The Initiative is a philanthropic act by the team members of Saints FC to provide for those within reach who are needy, with a vision to further expand her range of reach. At Saints FC, we largely believe that a simple act of kindness can go a long way in making the world a better place.
The Saints Care officially kicked off on the 5th of April, 2015 with it’s first visit to the Heart of Gold Hospice in Surulere, Lagos – Nigeria, where each team member brought a little token of their love for the kids at the Hospice. The visit was quite an emotional start for the Saints Care initiative as it got a lot team members fired up upon seeing what some children are going through and this was enough motivation for the growth of the Saints Care initiative with the mandate to help the needy. Saints care has since then been an active part of the Saints FC Culture.
With the recognition of the Community’s need came the initiative’s second act on the 27th of June, 2015 which happened to have been during the Ramadan celebrations. The event was a Saints Care charity match at the home ground of Saints FC (CIS Pitch, Lekki) in collaboration with ‘Stay In School NG’, another well recognized charity organization in Nigeria and the match was between the current TPL(4) champions Saints FC and two-time TPL champions Red Devils FC; after which members and fans of both teams took gift items and provisions to the kids at Motherless babies home, Lion’s village in Lekki, Lagos – Nigeria. The event was yet another successful outreach to the needy.
Saints Care is still quite young and is steadily growing as the will to touch more lives continues to burn with more passion in the hearts of the caring members of Saints FC. Saints care plans on touching more lives in subsequent times, both as a team that cares and in partnership with other Charity organizations with the clear mission of giving back to the society and helping those in need to have better lives.
The next saints care outreach is aimed at giving out 25 school bags each to ‘Lovingaze’ and ‘Stay in School NG’ to be given to school children by the respective charity organizations. Plans to donate N100,000 in cash or food items via Saints care to the Internally displaced people in the northeast are on going and you are welcome to contribute your token towards this cause by filling the Saintscare form here on the site and making payments to the Saints Fc account that would be made available to you afterwards. All contributions towards this cause should be fulfilled on or before the 31st of September 2015 to enable it’s speedy execution.
Saints Care; One team can change the world.
