Chicken Project 1-11 Visit to Joy Rita Orphanage

Spread the love

Learn how you can be apart of helping people who are in need with our Chicken Orphanage Project or our A Thrifty Mom Bag of Rice Project . 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 also met a young man named Isaac, smart and hard working but could not find employment. After talking bit we found he had built a chicken coop and wanted to farm chickens. We asked him if he would raise chickens for us that would then be donated to feed children in local orphanages. The only food or supplies they get are what are donated, so they often go without any source of protein. We would like to invite you to help meet one of those basic needs, by providing Nigerian families with rice or chickens. 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. Chickens are only available to purchase as once they are big enough to butcher, so if you see they are out of stock he is in the process or growing another flock.

The Following story is about the Joy Rita Orphanage, these chickens were donated thanks to Cat Neiheisel and Dawn Mahon . We were able to give away 11 chickens. This is the first visit and we gave away chickens 1-11 thanks to generous donations.

This was the first place we visited


  Our journey to this orphanage home was a successful one although it was’t difficult to locate which look about 45 minutes drive to get to the place and it’s very close to the main express road located at number  168 ABA Owerri Road off Abayi Umuocham, Abia State, Nigeria.


 On our getting to this orphanage home, we were received with love,  then we spoked with the person in charge of the place and inform him about our visitation and request if we can also take some pictures with the kids, he said no to that because some other people who do come  and take pictures with them miss use that privilege.  So we are only  allowed to take the picture of the building and other things but not  with the kids unless their is something like a birthday party and in this one the kids are only Ten (10) in number that stay there.

One our way out threw a window were were able to see and hear the kinds singing with their teacher.

Our visiting them was to make them happy which was accomplished  and to help or make them know that we or there are people who care  much about them even though they don’t have that parental care.

We asked of their major concern, which they told us that their major  concern is foods, provision for them to eat to look more healthy.
