A philanthropist and child- advocate, Adonis Aboud, has been given a youth friendly development Award by the Artistic Innovative Movement.
This was done, based on his meaningful contribution and his overall development of the country especially in the area of children and youth promotions.
Receiving the award, Adonis said he was moved by the gesture though he is not doing his humanitarian activities for recognition but for humanity.
He said the importance of children in a nation, cannot be over-emphasized because without children, nations will not develop- “therefore the ABC secretariat should concentrate on the youths rather than the older generation.”
Adonis Aboud stated that he had been engaged in social activities targeting the youths for the development of the nation. He thanked the organization for their recognition of his work “this gives me motivation; it is a good pay back.”
The Founder of the Organisation, Joseph Jas- Kamara in presenting the award and speaking about their organization, said the award is an encouragement for him not to relent in his developmental stride.
He said Adonis Aboud has and is still working for the development of the country and his work has inspired other people to follow likewise.
He said development is a collective responsibility and so the youths have come together for the development of the country.
