Naomi's New Home

Last year, we wrote about a tragedy that occurred at Ajegunle, at the notorious Dustbin Estate, where one of our kids resided.  This was published on our blog and Instagram page, as we sought to raise some immediate relief for many of the families affected.  Over 100 families were affected, based on info sourced from a local NGO working in that community.  With their collaboration, and donations raised from the campaign, we were able to provide immediate relief to 55 of the affected families.

However, in the long term, they still faced the challenge of rebuilding, finding a new home, and getting their lives back on track.  Naomi and her mother were among those affected.  They had to move in with some friends, who were kind enough to accommodate them for many months, while Naomi's mom went in search of somewhere new.  However, affordable rent was hard to come by for the family.

A year later, we decided to reach out again to our friends to ask for their support to raise enough money for Naomi and her mom to pay two years' rent in a new place they'd found.  In a few days, we raised the N300k we sought and presented the cheque to Naomi and her mother this week.  They were so excited, singing and praying for us.  We really appreciate everyone who decided to bring funds or tell their friends to contribute to assist this lovely family with their rent.

Now, Naomi has a new home and another reason to smile and be hopeful!

In other news, Naomi's in her final year in school and doing very well!  We are super excited at what the future holds for her.

Home sweet home for Naomi and her mom
