The committee will compile a list of orphanages across Nigeria. They will determine
the number of children and their needs at each orphanage, and then divide the funds
accordingly. The committee will also determine the portion of the money that will be
donated to Paroche foundation. To maintain transparency, the committee will make
public the names of the beneficiary orphanages and how much each will receive.
A list of all beneficiaries and their verified account details will be submitted to
Wema Bank, who will then be instructed to credit each beneficiary’s account.
