Bag of Rice Project #153 -A visit to the Aniebet family

Spread the love

Learn how you can be apart of helping people who are in need with our A Thrifty Mom Bag of Rice Campaign. In 2016 we started helping a young man named Ikechukwu from Nigeria. Summer of 2019 we were able to visit his family in Aba, Nigeria. While there we saw widespread poverty and lack of basic needs. We would like to invite you to help meet one of those basic needs, by providing Nigerian families with rice. This gift will feed a large family for a few months, or a single person a year. It also reminds them they are loved, and brings most of them to tears… as a full bag of rice is one of the most generous gifts they will ever receive. You can also read about other families we have been able to bless here.

The Following story is about the Aniebet family, their bag of rice was donated thanks to Helen Root this is the 153rd bag of rice our program has been able to give away thanks to generous donations

We met this family in a village outside of Uyo, Nigeria. They were introduced to us by their village chief. We met Mrs Hossanah Aniebet who is widow with her 2 children. They live in a mud house and have their utilities built outside the house.

The Aniebets cook with firewood in a small structure just besides their house. Mrs Aniebet sells garri in a local market near them. The motor bike in their kitchen belongs to Mrs Aniebets late husband and he used to make money carrying people and goods on it. The Aniebet family has really struggled with the absence of their breadwinner.

This family was referred to us by their village chief because of the recent death in their family and thought they could benefit from the bag of Rice. We visited this family and when we spoke to Mrs Aniebet and explained why we came she was very excited to receive us. This family thoroughly deserves this bag of Rice and I know that it will make a difference to their family.
