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 Ebere family, their bag of rice was donated thanks to Hilary Wilken, Ashley McGinnis, this is the 30th bag of rice our program has been able to give away thanks to generous donations.

This wonderful family was recomended to us by their church leader. We met only the wife and the kids at home. Mrs Nnenna is a trader and she takes care of the children and trades pepper in small quantities her husband Mr Ebere is a laborer that travels around looking for work and on the occasion we came he was not at home. They live in a rented apartment with other people who they share other facilities with. They cook inside their little one bedroom apartment.

This family was so grateful for our visit and the bag of rice. Since Mr Ebere was not home it had become difficult for Mrs Nnenna to feed the kids and she said she was praying for help from God to help them survive before her husband came home that morning and few hours later we came. She was very emotional as she thanked us for the rice and we knew it was going to go a long way in helping them.
