As part of our poverty alleviation program, this year we reached out to Hope Rising Home Foundation community in Ikola, Ipaja Lagos, Nigeria We provided free eye tests, free reading glasses, free blood sugar and glucose test, free blood pressure check, food items, free clothing, and educational materials.
The event was made possible by Almighty God that used other charity organization in collaboration with Hope Rising Homes Foundation, - Hands of Hope Foundation, Total Respite Foundation and Mercy International Medical Mission Inc. This is a great part of our mission, and it was a success.
Children day was celebrated on May 27, 2021. Observance of Children's Day in Nigeria is aimed to raise public awareness of problems, that children face. About 42% of the Nigerian population are children and 1/3 of children aged from 6 to 14 do not go to schools. Many children leave schools for different purposes and children's rights are often violated. We are hoping that the government of Nigeria will do more to solve the problems connected with children's right violation and imperfect system of education.
