We Did It! 168 children Smile to Bed. Many More to Go!

Image

We announced last month, that for children’s Day [May 27], we wanted to buy sleeping kits [Mattresses, Bed sheets, Mosquito nets & more] for children of ‘Dustbin Estate’. As its name connotes, Dustbin Estate is an area of refuse; a settlement in which inhabitants build their houses with planks on refuse dumps. So these children practically live on ‘trash’ with no proper beds. Our plan was to change that, and we asked everyone to join in on the project by contributing to make it a reality.
You listened and joined us in putting smiles on the faces of these little angels; 168 folded mattresses with bed sheets, pillow cases, and mosquito nets donated so far! We would like to also extend our sincere appreciation to the ‘Experiencing God’ group at IBC , The ‘Bible Study’ ladies, Mouka Foam, Indomie, and individual friends who contributed to make a difference with SPAN USING THE ARTS AS A TOOL FOR SOCIAL TRANSFORMATION. May God bless you all and keep you safe and healthy
It’s not too late, you can join in the project, it goes on! 272 bed sets to go…. Let’s do this! contact us to be a part of this Info@spanigeria.org, 01-7767726.
