Hajia Habiba Abubakar’s Milk of Kindness
Goodness begets goodness. If this is the philosophy on which the philanthropic gestures of the famous Abuja-based Hajia Habiba Abubakar are hinged on, then, anyone can understand why she is never tired of doing well to the hoi polloi in the society.
It is heart-warming that her philanthropy, which has endeared her to the common people in Abuja and some parts of the North, has not gone unnoticed. How? The woman of substance has several times honoured with humanitarian awards at home and abroad for her activities.
The award, which was organised by Africans in Diaspora, was in recognition of the contributions of her 10-year-old foundation for the elderly and the poor, a Non-Government Organisation (NGO), founded in 2006 in India when her husband was the High Commissioner to that country. The NGO transcends national, ethnic and religious borders.
Spy Glass also gatherer Hajia Abubakar has also donated five hectares to build a school and an elderly home for the less privilege.
