Huddah Monroe is a foster parent to a girl for whom she pays school fees and caters for her basic needs. Yes, she’s not just a socialite but an entrepreneur with a heart.
The Huddah Cosmetic founder and CEO said the girl has a mother and she only helps out with the finances.
“I ADOPTED THE BABY BECAUSE I FEEL LIKE KIDS ARE VERY FRAGILE AND THE KID’S PARENTS COULDN’T AFFORD TO PAY THE SCHOOL FEES. I USED TO ASK THIS KID ‘DO YOU WANT TO GO TO SCHOOL?’ AND I SAW HER DREAM; SHE REALLY WANTED TO GO TO SCHOOL. I TOOK HER, SHE’S STILL WITH THE MOTHER BUT I PAY FOR SCHOOL AND STUFF LIKE THAT. I LOVE KIDS. I HAVE MY OWN FOUNDATION, HUDDAH FOUNDATION.”
Adding, “I started Huddah Foundation so that half of the money goes to my foundation to help kids, especially those that are disabled.”
