Meet Modupe Silva-Ope, the woman behind God’s will Foundation
The story Modupe Olatunbosun Silva-Ope can be likened to the popular saying that a golden egg has no hiding. From her little comfort to support the poor in the society, she has been able to catch a niche for her self as a selfless woman with heart of kindness.
It is interesting that most of her efforts through her foundation has been at low key without fanfare and unnecessary attention seeking.
Worried by the plight of widows and poor women in the society, Modupe dedicated a larger percentage of her support to these target group as a way to make a statement.
For instance, during the covid pandemic, she was able to feed over 200 women everyday for several days without making noise non seek help fro the government.
This effort did not stop until her target of feeding 5000 was reached and all was done through her personal efforts and her immediate family support.
Like the proverbial saying of teach a man how to fish, she recently launched an empowerment project to train 200 women of different age grades on the business of make-up and beauty. The free training will be completed with provision of working tools that worth over two hundred thousand Naira to each participant.
Her kindness was first shared by a man identified as Ibukun Sunday who was involved in a fatal road accident that got one of his legs amputated. He narrated how Modupe mobilised resources to get him an artificial leg that has enhanced him to be more productive with minor hindrance.
Speaking recently on his upcoming empowerment project, Modupe explained how she relocated from Ireland to give back to the vulnerable women she had witnessed their suffering in the past.
She said her background in beauty and make up informed her decision to use this path to put other women into self reliance and sustainability.
While she is welcomed to other well meaning Nigerians to join hands with her to target more people in the society, Modupe equally called on those with means to always remember the needy around them.
