December 2017 - Current need in Nigeria


Dear friends,
we send you warm greetings from Nigeria and hope you are all doing well!

God richly bless you for all your help and support so far. Without you it would not have been possible to care for the more than 2500 children, widows and families during the past months.
Your donations and prayers really make a great impact in our lives here at “Home For The Needy“. We are very grateful and we really appreciate!

Now, we would like to share with you our current challenges, with the request to remain by our side through prayers and giving. This is where we need urgent help at the moment:

  • Right now, we are owing our staff the last two months’ salaries (October and November). They all work hard for the welfare of the children, widows and families from the North-East of Nigeria, and we would like to pay them the wages they deserve – but unfortunately this is not possible for us at the moment.
  • Many of those who graduated from our school “Christlike School” are awaiting admission to university.
    One of them, Blessing, has already gotten admission and would be able to immediately start studying nursing at one of the best universities here. But she needs about 2,000 € in order to start her first academic year. Blessing's father died when she was very young, and her mother ran away with another man. Blessing has been staying with us for many years and graduated from our secondary school. It would be our greatest joy if she could begin her studies now.
    Another student, Elohor, needs about 1,000 € in order to finish up her law studies. She has graduated from university and is now supposed to attend law school for one year, which is compulsory – there are however no finances for this at the moment, so she cannot move forward now.
  • Moreover, the pupils/students of our school need school materials urgently, such as text books, note books and pens.
  • Also the feeding of the over 2,500 people at our centre is a great challenge at the moment. We don't have the finances for buying enough cooking ingrediences like onions, tomatoes, beaf and fish. That is why we currently can only cook rice with oil as meal in the morning, noon and afternoon.
    We already experienced that some time ago and this unbalanced diet was leading to many health issues with the children. But when we were able to cook well balanced food again as we could buy beaf, chicken, eggs etc. regularily their health constitution improved again. But now, due to the lack of finances we face the same problem anew. This is paining us a lot. As soon as possible we want to be able to ensure a well balanced diet again.

From the depth our of hearts we thank you for all your prayers and other support and we are happy if you also tell others about our work!
