Residents of Oshodi area of Lagos State could not hide their joy at the weekend when a team from a non-governmental organisation arrived with different buses filled with goodies.

The group, Arise Women, established by Mrs Siju Iluyomade, the wife of a popular cleric with the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Idowu Iluyomade of the City of David, Lagos, was in the area on Saturday, January 30, 2021, to share the popular Arise Pink Bucket.

For the past seven weeks, the team has been to different local government areas of the state to distribute the items and the news has travelled to others yet to receive.

They have reached Epe, Surulere, Lagos Island, Agege, Ikorodu, Ikeja, Ajegunle, Shomolu, amongst others to show love to the less privileged in the areas.

So, immediately residents of Oshodi sighted the Arise Women bus, they were thrown into frenzy.

The Arise Pink Bucket was designed to assist the less privileged with food palliatives. It comprises food stuffs like rice, spaghetti groundnut oil, tomato paste etc.

For 12 years, Arise Women has been impacting lives and assisting the government to empower the people through various programmes like skill acquisition, enlightenment seminars, amongst others.

Yearly, the organisation holds an event tagged Arise Walk For Life and in 2020, despite the threat posed by COVID-19 pandemic, it was held.

The event themed #StayingAlive precisely took place on Saturday, October 17 across the globe, including Nigeria, London, the United States of America and Canada.
