The Month of October is a busy month for Tinsel Actress, Maltina Dance All Host and Former Miss Black USA Queen, OSAS IGHODARO as she embarks on a journey to launch a project that is dear to her heart…’The Joyful Joy Foundation.’
Joyful Joy is named in honor of Joy Ighodaro, sister of Osas, who contracted malaria while pregnant, on a short visit to Nigeria. The disease killed her and her unborn child. The impact of this loss and the need to educate, gave birth to The Joyful Joy Foundation.
Joyful Joy Foundation was launched in New York on the 22nd of May, 2012 (Joys birthday) and is thankful to finally launch in Nigeria.
The Joyful Joy Foundation represents a passion to end hunger, preventable disease and promote sustainable growth and development for communities living under the poverty line in Africa. It is a celebration of life and a reminder to us all to do our best in supporting those who are in need.
The organization exists to leverage broad collaborations among individuals, organizations, corporations and other NGOs to provide communities with little or no access to resources with the basic necessities to live a healthy and productive lifestyle.
This month, Osas kicks off her launch of The Joyful Joy Foundation with a Health & Wellness workshop with the support of the Society for Family Health, on the 19th of October 2013 at the Campus Square, Lagos Island from12pm-3pm and is sponsored by Joyful Joy Foundation, Cool FM, Spotlight Media World Services and Bobby Taylor Company.
The Health & Wellness workshop will include onsite Malaria testing, HIV testing and free consultations and health education from health professionals.
There will be live performances from JJC and other acts.
The aim of this workshop is to reach out to the community to promote a better quality of life through health education. It also intends to offer a variety of interactive instructions on health related topics that teach necessary skills to adopt healthy lifestyle habits.
On the 27th of October, The Joyful Joy Foundation will officially be launched with a private event.
The 26th of October also marks Osas Ighodaro’s birthday and she is celebrated for her initiative to use a strong experience to reach out to her community.
Join us as we launch The Joyful Joy Foundation.
