Economic livelihoods of many disadvantaged families, who are daily wage earners in Lagos have been halted and negatively altered due to the lock-down as a result of COVID-19 pandemic. This project will, therefore, support such families, who are members of the OBF Youth Centres in Victoria Island, Lagos and Warri, Delta state; the project will provide them relief materials such as staple foods, beverage, and hygiene packs.
With the steady increase in confirmed cases in Lagos state, the lock-down directive issued by the government may be extended inorder to ensure that lives are prioritized and the spread of the virus is curtailed. This would further increase the hardship witnessed so far by many economically disadvantaged families and other citizens who are continually deepening into poverty due to their inability to engage in any economic activities thereby resulting in their inability to provide for their family
The fund will cushion the effect of joblessness and starvation already experienced by many families in Eti-Osa LGA and will provide food and hygiene packs to 120 families whose children are members/beneficiaries of the Ovie Brume Foundation's Youth Center. The fund will also provide sanitary pads to 250 girls who are also members/beneficiaries of the Ovie Brume Foundation as well as educate them on good hygiene to boost their reproductive health.
The project will support 120 economically disadvantaged families by reducing hunger and improving their well-being as well as improve the reproductive health of 250 girls within economically disadvantaged families.
