COMMUNITY PROJECT

COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT
The HLF Empowerment Scheme, which took effect in 2008, has provided
relevant equipment, cash and various other items to several widows and
indigent individuals.
Despite the challenges of topography and terrain, the Foundation has
also made positive impact in quite a number of communities in the
Niger Delta region. In 2009, it commissioned a bore-hole in Jakpa,
Warri North LGA, which is today the only drinking water bore-hole on
the Benin River axis — a sad irony of a people who are surrounded by
water.

FREE BASIC MEDICAL SERVICES
In 2012, the Foundation — in partnership with Focus Community
Initiative — extended basic medical services to a number of
communities in the Niger Delta area. The pilot programme covered a
period of 9 [nine] days and the exercise recorded a large turn-out of
people of all age groups. In addition, people were enlightened on the
implications of diabetes and high blood pressure as well as the
essence of good dietary and hygienic practices.

LOOKING TO THE FUTURE
The Foundation proposes to expand the scope of the HLFSSSS to include
more beneficiaries. It also intends to build and equip a modern
Community Library in Warri, Delta State. The land for this project has
already been acquired by the Foundation.
Our ultimate objective is to build a Hall of Fame where the names and
portraits of all HLF Recipients [HLRs] will be engraved. In time also,
this Hall will become a museum of nation builders; great men and women
who have made positive impact, serving as sources of inspiration and
national pride.
To all our partners, we say a very big Thank You even as we look
forward to more fruitful relationships in the years to come.
Hallmarks of Labour Foundation welcomes you all to this epoch-making
event. We congratulate our worthy Recipients and appreciate their
tremendous attainments from which Nigerians has greatly benefited.
