We are sharing foodstuffs to low income families in Nigeria. As a result of the lockdown, many families have lost their means of subsistence. We therefore aim at alleviating hunger during this period by sharing food items to low income families including aged people, widows, etc. 

The process of identifying our target audience is done online. We ask people to send in names of aged people and those in a particular living condition. The names are sent electronically and we make calls across to these individuals to ascertain their exact location, for delivery. 

Our delivery team are fully kitted and protected and they deliver these items to the recipients doorstep.

Distribution of essential food items to the aged and low income families.
