“I am eager to continue this journey of compassion and faith, knowing that each opportunity to serve brings light and hope to those in need”.

My name is Adetola Oluwadarasimi and this is my experience with OIF

My time as an occupational therapist with the Osteogenesis Imperfecta Foundation was both fulfilling and deeply meaningful. At the heart of our mission was the provision of free mobility devices to individuals living with physical disabilities, alongside the distribution of Bibles to continue the message of Jesus Christ, which resonated with me deeply.

Each day, I conducted assessments to determine the most suitable mobility devices for our participants, ranging from wheelchairs to crutches. This process allowed me to tailor our support to their specific needs, ensuring they could navigate their daily lives with greater independence and comfort.

What truly made this experience unforgettable was the opportunity to connect with our participants on a personal level. Hearing their stories of resilience and courage touched my heart in profound ways. Whether in Lagos State or Delta State, each encounter left a lasting impression on me.

Delta State, in particular, stirred strong emotions within me. Witnessing individuals living with physical disabilities without access to therapists was heart-wrenching. Yet, through our efforts with the foundation, we were able to bring smiles to their faces and provide them with the support they desperately needed.

Working with the foundation felt like being part of a close-knit family. The camaraderie among team members made every task feel like a shared mission. It was a privilege to work alongside such dedicated individuals united by a common goal.

Reflecting on this experience fills me with gratitude and a sense of purpose. The relationships formed, the challenges overcome, and the lives touched have left an indelible mark on me. I am eager to continue this journey of compassion and faith, knowing that each opportunity to serve brings light and hope to those in need.
