We will be implementing a TEFAP outreach in Makoko community, Lagos for hundreds of identified vulnerable families on the 25th of June 2022. 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.
Makoko is an informal settlement across the 3rd Mainland Bridge located on the coast of mainland Lagos. A third of the community is built on stilts along the lagoon and the rest is on the land. The waterfront part of the community is largely harbored by the Egun people who migrated from Badagry and Republic of Benin and whose main occupation is fishing.
To meet the needs of the most vulnerable families in Makoko 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: 25th of June, 2022
We plan to reach hundreds of vulnerable women and children in the community with our boxes of hope.
