One of the members, Eleyele Benjamin, said MMM’s “Save a life” Charity program is one of the reasons the group was founded.
He said; “what we do in our community is providing help for each other. We provide for people in need at a time when other people who don’t need, pay for them and get rewarded after 30 days.
“And part of the motive of the organization is providing for the less privileged. We have come here and seen that there are a lot of people in need financially and we are here to render the assistance.
“We are here to also enlighten people that the scheme is not a scam and to enlighten them on social responsibility by the community”, Benjamin said.
Part of the beneficiaries are a 12 years old girl, Oyindamola Oluwadare, who is suffering from a heart failure in University College Hospital, UCH Ibadan, 4 year-old-boy, Ayoade Muhyeed who needs N300, 000 for an eye surgery, Ariyo Taofeek, a physiotherapic patient, Rafiu Anuoluwapo, Akeem Sakirat Olagunju Akeem, Later Adeshina, Olalekan Kehinde and six other patients in the hospital.
