Video from Yemi (Yomi’s Son)


My name is Yemi and I am son of Abayomi Akinyemi, my dad, who has spent a big portion of his life helping others. My life and the life of our family hasn’t been always easy. We have faced lots of adversity, and if not for some extraordinary people along the way, we wouldn’t be where we are. I believe it is our ability to help each other in a time of need, our capacity for compassion and our faith in being united when needed that can take us through the most scariest hardships. So, I’m here today to congratulate him to congratulate him for achieving yet another tremendous milestone on his commendable journey: The founding of AAA Global Care Foundation, and although his work has just begun. He is already changing lives of people in central Europe and Africa. I am so proud of him, congratulations.“
