Weʼre raising £7,000 to Buy Sleeping Tents For Forgotten Teenagers And Young Adults On The Street.
- London, UK
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.
My name is Blessing Sule and I grew up in Edo State, Nigeria.
I am passionate about giving and helping the needy.
My father died when I was five-years-old and life was tough for my mum, trying to raise six children by herself.
When life got tough Mum sent us to live with relatives and from that moment, I moved from home to home.
I was robbed of my childhood and at the age of 15 I became a victim of human trafficking and was trafficked to Antwerp in Belgium until I was 24 after which I had help from a good Samaritan and escaped, I then came to the UK, but despite all the difficulties of my early years I was determined to make a good life for myself here the UK now working as a Project Manager.
The situation in my birth town does not change though. Children are growing up without a family to care for them, teenage girls/boys are constantly being taken advantage of by traffickers due to their poor background and simply because their families cannot afford to provide for them or give them.
People are living on the streets and under bridges and I believe no human should have to sustain this way of living.
I set up Amor De Dios Hope Foundation (ADDHF) in order to give back to the community where I grew up.
£59.00 will buy a sleeping tent for one homeless teenager, so far we have in our records 195 teenagers and young adult sleeping on the street and under bridges in dangerous environment.
We have a secured spacious location where these teenagers will spend the night in their various tents and not sleep on the street.
ADDHF is also committed to providing packed lunch and dinner for the young homeless teenagers/adults.
Our long term goal is to have a permanent night shelter/accommodation.
Please help these young teens, every penny you donate is saving a young teen from homelessness today.
Thank you for your support.
