The Rotary Club of Gbagada South has bestowed a humanitarian award on Dr. Freeman Osonuga (DFO) in recognition of his diligent service to humanity.

Osonuga was nominated as an awardee due to his exemplary role in the uplift of the society to bring about development by empowering people within his immediate society and the world at large.

He is the founder of Dr. Freeman Osonuga (DFO) Foundation, a charitable organisation that supports orphans, alleviates poverty, and advocates for the welfare of the people living with disabilities in Nigeria.

The DFO Foundation recently had a charity outreach to empower the people of the Jcappa community, an underprivileged suburb of Abraham Adesanya Estate, Ajah, Lagos.

The DFO foundation also recently empowered some selected small and medium scale businesses.

The award presentation took place in Lagos during the Investiture ceremony of Rotary Club Gbagada South 18th President Rotarian Yemi Ogunlade and the launch of the club’s projects.

A business consultant and fashion entrepreneur, who received the award on behalf of Osonuga, Segun Shittu, stated that DFO is a philanthropist who remains committed to improving the economic state of the nation.

He said the awardee believes one way he can engender economic growth is through reaching out to the needy, financing small and growing businesses that can create jobs.
