The maiden project of Cherish Hospital was the Orphans & Vulnerable Families Project(OVF) in the 4 select wards of the 11 wards in Batsari Local Government. The program specifically focuses on distress homes and orphans identified through a need survey conducted by the foundation (Local Capacity Development Survey 2010). Affected families through this program were assisted with a monetary support ranging from N5, 000 to N10, 000 per family with advocacy and capacity building to start small businesses to support themselves. We are scaling up through our Micro-Finance Bank to cover the entire State and beyond.

So far nearly 500 families have been covered. The project is undertaken in phases, each phase covers 500 families. Through the Orphans & Vulnerable Families Project(OVF) some Islamic faith based Organizations have been empowered by the provision of fully stocked shops, each around the central mosques of the major religious groups in the Local Government Area (Batsari). This being a pilot program for scalability.
