#Mission2Makurdi - DAY 1
The first day of #Mission2Makurdi was a huge success! Thank God!
Our funding goal was N5m; but as at 10.30pm today (Wednesday), we've raised N5,357,500 from 77 donors! You all are just amazing!
IMPACT (Day 1):
We reached 366 households (with average of 8 members each) from 5 affected communities. We first served them food; then distributed blankets, mosquito nets, feeding sets, and bags of rice to each household. Each household also got N5,000 each. We have 134 more households to reach with these.
●everyone who have contributed so far and those who volunteered. Huge appreciation to my able co-Coordinator, Olatunji Lanre-B, and Lucky & Sam (our camera crew); ●Pastors Nike Adeyemi (Daystar Church), Yemi Davids (Global Impact Church), Godman Akinlabi (Elevation Church), ID Cabasa (Global Impact Church), who travelled down to Makurdi and were all on ground to arrange relief materials, provide guidance, coordinate and take part in distribution, and even served food; ●The team from Daystar Church, the volunteer team from Global impact Church, including the Medical team; and ●Abutu Ishotu of Aldf, QueenElizabeth (our able mobilizer), Jenni Kedra (NYSC Face of Community Service, Benue State), and all the volunteers in Makurdi that joined to make today a success.
DAY 2 (Thursday):
Tomorrow, we'd be distributing all the donated relief materials that came mainly from Lagos and Abuja with a fully-loaded 20 tonnes truck. We'll also conduct the medical outreach.
A video and documented Report would be produced post-project. For now, I'd post similar updates.
Thanks, and God bless you all. ...
