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 Asuquo family, their bag of rice was donated thanks to Jason Gill this is the 436th bag of rice our program has been able to give away thanks to generous donations.
We came across this wonderful family in a village outside Uyo called Ifa village. We felt compassion for the people living in this area. We were welcomed by Mr Christopher Asuquo, his wife and few of his children. This family live in a rather croaky environment, due to this failure, the weather condition of the season is largely to affect them severely. An incomplete building with no doors or windows, the roofs partly fixed is likely to attract dangerous animals and unfriendly pest that can cause lots of illnesses. Mr Christopher is a hard working man who helps to work in a barber shop as an apprentice. His wife barely has any source of income. So to be the head of the family of seven people is not an easy task but they pull through daily.
The Asuquos cook with a small kerosene stove in a small, dimly lit room. It is one of the cheapest method they can afford and they use this small room in cooking. There was no foodstuff visible in this room as the Asuquos told us that they thinking of what to feed themselves on that evening and that they had run out of options and had planned to buy some food on credit before we arrived.
Mr Asuquo was very surprised during our visit. He told that we were an answer to his prayers and he had been praying for a miracle to give the family some breathing room in the midst of their financial struggles. They were so grateful for this donation and were profuse in their thanks as they kept expressing their appreciation over and over again. It was a nice experience meeting them and I was happy seeing the amount of genuine happiness in their faces because of our visit.
