Funding to build a centre for displaced flood victims and an orphanage in Nigeria

Requested by

Phaneros Care

Who are you trying to help? What issue are you trying to address?

We are trying to get support for the displaced flood victims and needy children in Delta State and Bayelsa State in Nigeria, in response to the flooding in Bayelsa in October 2012. Right now our team in Nigeria has come forward to provide shelter and food for 1200 flood victims and 310 orphans, and has provided scholastic items to about 100 children at their respective homes. We are working to rehabilitate an orphanage that will accommodate a total number of 100 to 150 children.

The construction proposal for the orphanage aims to rehabilitate the building to become a home, which upon completion will work as an orphanage and a vocational training centre for the less privileged and needy children. All the supported children will be brought to this home and compulsory vocational and Bible education will be provided.

What is your project and how will it help?

The project is located in Ibusa village, Delta State. Our volunteer team has been visiting the village to donate school and personal gifts to the kids and has opened a fellowship in the centre compounds.

After completion of Class VII in the centre, those children who are still interested to attend school will be sent to high school, and for the remaining students vocational training will be given. Children attending school will be kept in the orphanage until they complete their studies and thereafter will be sent to work and develop their lives and communities.

For vocational courses, children completing Class VII will be selected and trained. After successful completion we will take the responsibility of finding placements for them. During their stay in the centre and orphanage, all their needs will be met: food; clothing; shelter; and education. All other necessities (including medical aid and health care) will be provided.

How can other people partner with you on your project?

We request you to help us to help children and displaced people in need. Any contribution you offer helps make a difference in giving them a proper education, and giving them the chance in life they deserve.

“PHANEROS CARE-EVERY CHILD IS YOUR CHILD” programme is an initiative of ZIOMADOXA LTD, built upon the generosity of our donors from around the world and all contributions, large or small, regular or occasional, go towards helping us make a difference to children’s education.

When making your donation, you can specify which area your money should be distributed. If you have any questions, you are always welcome to contact us via email.

Please detail the resources that you need.

Please support our project & orphanage centre that supports displaced flood victims & orphaned children. All our efforts this year have been put on rehabilitation/construction processes for the project.

As a volunteer team, we are seeking a donation of not less than US$5,000 urgently for the finalization of the centre and to set up a solid and more effective care foundation.
