Events / Reports :: Enugu, Nigeria

Sub Saharan Betterment care Foundation (SSBCF)  was made aware of facilities in Enugu, Nigeria that needed some assistance. Those facilities were Cheshire Home for the Disabled,  City of Refuge Destitute Home and the Oji River Leprosy Settlement. So in September 2016 accompanied by Nigerian Television Authority (NTA), Enugu,  the organization visited and presented them with cooked meals. They also received yet to be cooked food items such as bags of Rice, Garri, Indomie,  2 bails of used clothes, tissue papers, etc. They have many needs, wished we could have done more, they are the least of the least, the forgotten ones in the community and they made indelible impression on our crew members. 






This is a home  filled with over 60 highly disabled children who in many cases were abandoned by their parents. However, we  were saddened by the deplorable state of the facility that we decided to adopt the home. The worse is that the property owner has given the home notice to vacate. We are therefore soliciting for fund to acquire plots of land and to construct a loving home for them. This would be a place where would be parents with disabled children can bring them to instead of throwing them away or killing them, a place of counselling and education. Our estimated budget is $100,000 which will include plots of land, building, and furnishing. Please find below ways you can contribute, no amount is too small.
