In partnership with Harvard Nigerian Students Association, we will be implementing a TEFAP outreach in Oworonshoki community, Lagos for hundreds of identified vulnerable families on the 23rd of December 2021. This outreach is not exclusive to adults alone as the children will also be receiving goody bags for Christmas. Through our TEFAP program that caters to the welfare of vulnerable beneficiaries in the aspect of food and personal care and hygiene, we are continuing our good works of supplying relief to vulnerable indigent communities in South West, Nigeria. Our network of volunteers and staff have worked to inspect and identify vulnerable families as well as sort and package the boxes containing essential foodstuff and grocery supplies as well as nonessential items such as personal care items. This outreach is also sponsored by FrieslandCampina WAMCO Nigeria Plc and Honeywell Flour Mills Plc.
The outreach holds at Oworonshoki community, a suburb located in Kosofe LGA of Lagos State. The residents live under pathetic conditions and in an undignified manner in the slum. Amenities and basic structures like decent housing and community development are lacking in the community. In recent times, local community leaders and other members of the community have spoken of this neglect under anonymity.
To meet the needs of the most vulnerable families in Oworonshoki community, we aim to reach out to vulnerable people that are in dire economic and physical straits to give them hope and assistance that will support better outcomes for them and their loved ones.
To provide food assistance to keep the inhabitants with low economic power from being hungry
To give them and their children personal care items to reduce the prevalence of infection and support better nutrition.
To provide hope through our support and donations to influence positive behaviors in the community
DATE: 23rd of December, 2021
Together with Harvard Nigeria Students Association, we plan to reach hundreds of vulnerable women and children and also aged men and women in the community with our boxes of hope.
