Saving humanity and providing help is Adebimpe’s dominant driver. She is very determined to explore all avenues to do so, together with her well-chosen team of Trustees and Executive council members. Her robust philanthropic and charity endeavours have been recently incorporated under the umbrella of her Foundation.
