AART OF LIFE/MTNF PARTNERSHIP

This was an initiative of the Aart of life foundation, partnering with MTN Foundation. Its objective was to provide grief and trauma counseling via phone lines to bereaved individuals. Counselors were highly trained being the first ever confidential, grief and trauma support service counseling in Nigeria and it was toll free.
This is a guidance and counseling service primarily for those who have lost children or been bereaved in anyway, and it’s also open to those who have suffered some other form of trauma and are finding it difficult to cope. I am here to listen to you and together with you hopefully we can come up with coping strategies. My name is Oluwaseun (Thank you God). How may I help you?
This campaign was launched on the 12th of December 2007. Its success was phenomenal.

BENEFICIARIES

As part of the Grief / Trauma counseling support service, Mr. Olusoji Biobaku who was one of the first beneficiaries of this initiative was flown to India to undergo a Double Valve Replacement Cardiac surgery at Shalby Hospital. His life was saved.
