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.
14.11.2017, I visited Benue state located in the north central region of Nigeria.
I was opportuned to meet Mrs Rosemary and her children for the first time. I was deeply impressed with her courage and determination to see the children under her care through all obstacles. We learn't alot from each other, by trying to interact and understand. For me Mrs Rosemary is indeed a very strong-willed and principled woman, someone who gave up her flourishing business and secured existence for the vagaries and tribulations that seem to have been her daily occupation ever since she chose the stony path of taking care of these children.
Due to the low facilities in their local clinic, i watched the passing away of little Amina of few weeks of age, who died of intestinal complications despite all efforts made into saving her young life
I gave the home the hopes of raising funds through crowdfunding in other to equip the clinic with the right facilities to save lives in the future
We know ofcourse that the struggles will be a continuous one, but we derive so much confidence that, with efforts of well-meaning friends from so many nations, beliefs and background, it must indeed be a worthy cause we are fighting for.
I have always gathered so much happiness staying around the kids and their lively Matron, that i truly regard them as my family and would not want to miss them for anything.
I feel very privileged and proud to be associated with our little project and want to enjoin our friends all over the world to sustain and nourish it from its humble beginnings to greater height, in taking care and providing good clinic for the less privilege among us.
Thanks for your support
