COB - Children of Borno
helping some of the thousands of children, orphaned and homeless from the ongoing emergency in Northern Nigeria. One orphanage has now been set up and 30 children have been able to leave the IDP camp to the safety of a private compound.
Emergency Care for Internally Displaced People (IDP's)
is helping the continued arrival of homeless, displaced people as the state's funds for providing basic help has dried up. Women with children (often including children they picked up on the way to safety) are helped with basic items and accommodation. We then identify a skill they have and given micro-loans of $50 to start up a small business, helping them into economic independence.
How WE help
In Kano, Northern Nigeria, New Zealander Fiona Lovatt - with the help of the young people of Gidan Almajirai - channels every donation directly to where you want it to go, or where it needs to go urgently if you make a general donation. The Lovatt Foundation works closely with those in need, officialdom, landlords, traders and local benefactors.
