Safe houses need food because of the coronavirus
In Nigeria the restrictions are stricter than in Denmark which means that people are only allowed to leave their homes in order to buy food. This also has consequences for the 10 safe houses that we are cooperating with.
The safe houses normally receive donations from local families, neighbors and
churches in the form of food. This can be tomatoes, rice, eggs, onions and bread. But COVID 19 has meant that the Nigerians are forced to care for their own families first and therefore the donations have almost stopped.
Even though the women cannot leave their homes in order to go to school, work or do their internships they continue their daily lives as good as they can. And our employees still provide counceling, training, social activities and take care of daily chores – as well as they can under the current conditions.
In order to feed the 250 women that live in the 10 safe houses our local partner organization MeCAHT has started a fundraising campaign in Nigeria.
