DONATE $100 AND PUT A SMILE ON SOMEONE’S FACE

How far you go in life depends on your being tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant of the weak and strong because someday in your life you will have been all of these.

— George Washington Carver (1864-1943)

In most rural communities where we work, there is no source of portable water supply; there is disease infestation, malaria attacks, poverty and hunger. In these communities, the rate of child mortality is always very high.

Most families in these communities can hardly afford a square meal a day. They equally live in shanties and do not have good clothes to wear.

Do you need to be told that most sicknesses and deaths in these communities are caused by starvation?

Have you ever been to a rural community in Nigeria or any of the African countries before? May be, you have not! Now, do you remember what it means to be hungry and you do not have hope of getting a meal from anywhere? May be, you have not!

Ok, think for a minute and imagine how it may feel to go hungry in just a day of 24hours. How about going hungry for two days? How about dropping out of school because your parents cannot afford to pay your school fees? Think again, have you lived in or sorry, have you ever seen people living inside mud houses under leaking thatched roofs?

How about watching a loved one die in pains from a disease that is curable, just because there is no access to a healthcare facility around your community or may be because you cannot afford proper medication?

These are some of the challenges that prompted the inauguration of our “Put a Smile on Someone’s Face” project in 2008. The project is aimed at providing the less privileged persons and families in Imo State and its environs with the basic needs of life: food, clothing and shelter.

Our Success Stories…

Through this project, we have raised funds and built homes for 2 families that are homeless; awarded 2 full and 5 partial scholarships to children from poor families to enable them acquire secondary education; paid off medical bills of 2 indigent persons; donated 60 one-quarter bags of rice to 60 widows, 20 buckets of beans to 20 poor families, shared over 1,000 clothes, wrappers and shoes to over 100 men, women and children.

Our passionate appeals…

Do you have surplus food in your home, used clothes, used shoes, etc? Please, don’t throw them away anymore, send them to us. Your used clothes could become someone else’s Christmas clothes!
