Dear Friends, Family and Supporters of Serendipity Healthcare Foundation,

2020 was a year of learning, 2020 was not a year to get everything we wanted. it was a year to appreciate everything we have, In one of the darkest years of our shared existence, we have shown our brightest.....TOGETHERNESS.

Feeding, caring, connecting, protecting, and doing our best to make things better. Not just for our families and neighbours but for hundreds of thousands of people around the world.

Just look at the Incredible work we did together, and in these past amazing year, we have come to realise the value of togetherness.

Sadly, with the coming of the second wave of the pandemic and a vaccine found, there is a ray of hope that awaits us in this year 2021.

Schools are resuming in the next five days and thus it is of utmost importance that our children stay safe from the pandemic and following the COVID 19 Protocols; we achieved supply of face masks, hand sanitizers, washing liquids, water points, face shields, tempearture test kits et al to over 523 children in 3 schools and thus we are appealing that as schools are reopening with your kind donations we can do more for 4 additional schools this quarter.

Thank you for the confidence reposed in us and finding us worthy to be a link between you and the community.

Fighting hard to survive

Gone back to traditional processing
Gone back to traditional processing

Dear Supporters, Family and Friends of Serendipity,

The last you heard from us we talked about how our women were coping with COVID 19 and how it affects their business. We had a survey that showed that out of the 40 women thus far trained before the pandemic, only 15% of them have been able to weather the storm.

Upon further investigation we found out that the rest of the 85% of the women had no choice but to divert the initial capital funds given to them to basic needs of survival and now post Lockdown do not have any funds to continue their processing businesses.

Our country is currently in recession as cost of goods and services have gone up leaving the agricultural sector as the worst hit. We then had a meeting with the community based organisation that is overseeing the project in Tofa and it was resolved that a loan should be sought for them through the current programme of survival funds recently launched by the Federal Government of Nigeria. The application has been filled and thus we are waiting for the approval such that the women can go back to their lives pre COVID in helping their households.

We want to thank you for your continued support to our cause to ensuring that we take women out of the cluthches of poverty and assiting their households.

Thank you for your trust and confidence in us.

Hurrah!!One more life saving project done!!

Dear supporters, family and friends of Serendipity,

October 15 was Global Hand washing Day, with it came a clarion call that to beat the COVID 19 virus today and ensure better health outcomes beyond the pandemic, hand hygiene must be a priority now and in the future.

Today, nearly half of the schools in Kano and indeed across the country Nigeria lack hand washing facilities with water and soap, affecting over thirteen million school-age children. Also primary healthcare facilities in our rural communities have no hand washing facilities in the areas where patients receive care or near the toilets. Without access to safe water and sanitation services and effective hygiene protocols, many of our schools, health services and other public spaces will continue to be limited. This means that there is a clear and present danger if we do not put in all measures to ensure that hand hygiene is a priority there will be devastation in the event of any outbreak.

With your kind donations, we provided access to water in Kurekeni community in Kumbotso Local Government Council by installing three tube wells and provided WASH materials, temperature checker, face masks, face shield, WASH points and trainings to a primary and secondary school in Kano Municipal prioritizing of hand hygiene for all.

Emphasis has always been on good hand hygiene practices in all the communities we have worked on even prior to the coming of the COVID 19 pandemic as we have successfully delivered hand hygiene services to over 2500 school age children creating a behavior change to them keeping their hands clean at all times to stop diseases.

 More Investment is needed to scale work that we have done thus far for a supply of access to clean water and hand hygiene services. We can only achieve this through your continued partnership and would like to say a big thank you for the trust and support thus far showed to us.
