It is no news that the Covid-19 pandemic is ravaging countries across the world. Worse hit are the poorest of the poor, who live in slums and shanties behind the mega cities of the world.
In Abuja, Nigeria, several thousands who are affected by the 28 days stretch lockdown may not have been reached with the palliatives being shared by the government for several reasons. One of such reasons is that there is no motor-able access to where they live and were not captured in the Social Investment Program.
Most of them live in slums at Mpape, Kpaduma, kabusa, Karshi, Garki village, Mabushi village, etc
So, how are they coping with the unexpected lockdown? Your guess is as good as mine…
Unfortunately, the residents of these slums are daily faced with lack of basic infrastructures, such as: light, health care facilities, toilet facilities, etc, which worsen their situations and healthy conditions this period.
As an organization that works closely with youths and women, we have identified that these people are in dire need of help, especially food supplies.
By this Campaign therefore, we are raising funds to enable us distribute food items, such as: rice, garri, yams, onions, condiments, oil, etc.
We thank all those who have already made donations of food items in support of this project.
