Young single adults in the Calabar Nigeria Stake had been pondering the question, “Have I done any good in the world today?” (Hymn No. 223).
The hymn also asks, “Have I helped anyone in need?” and “Have the sick and the weary been helped on their way? When they needed my help, was I there?”
As the group thought about it, they decided they could help orphans who live in their area.
Nigeria has over 200 million people, and it is estimated that over 17.5 million are orphans, reported the Church’s Africa Newsroom. The young single adults decided to help the orphans in the Motherless Babies Dormitory in the city of Calabar.
