Weʼre raising £2,000 to distribute food at Christmas to widows and the elderly in Ogomosho (Oyo State, Nigeria) by fighting hunger we support families.

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Approximately 4 in 10 Nigerians are living below the national poverty line, and millions more living just above the poverty line, making them vulnerable. The shock of the pandemic, restrictions on movement of people and border closures foreshadow a decline in exports.
Due to the pandemic the World Bank forecasted that Nigeria’s economy will shrink 3.2-7.4% this year, depending on the severity of the COVID-19 outbreak. In a worst case scenario, the recession could continue into 2021.
By donating you help us in our fight against poverty. We can’t do it alone. You can help us bring hope to the widows and elderly in Ogomosho, Oyo State this Christmas.
