Weʼve raised £0 to help fund a new homeless shelter for victims of domestic abuse - women and children in Lagos, Nigeria.

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
God's Home for Women Foundation was registered as a Non-Governmental Organisation in 2015 and we opened our shelter for abused women in a rented accommodation (providing 22 beds) in March 2016 with a plan to purchase a building to provide a permanent site for the shelter's activities.
Since opening, the shelter has had full occupancy with women and children, we even have a heavily pregnant woman resident at the moment - thanks to the prevalence of domestic abuse in the community right now.
Our current landlord recently informed us of his intention to sell the property which makes our move to a permanent site quite urgent - we cannot afford to buy this property as it is 3 times the cost of suitable and similar property elsewhere.
We however have an option of rent-to-by on a property. Therefore we are looking to raise an initial N4m (£8,000) for two years rent on a N40m (£80,000) property on the outskirts of Lagos, Nigeria.
With some of the heart wrenching stories of the women we have housed at the shelter over the past one year, Lagos, a city of 17 million people needs several of such shelters and we appeal that you give what you can to help keep this shelter open.
