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 our visitation to the SEVENTH- DAY ADVENTIST HOSPITAL AND MOTHERLESS BABIES HOME , these chickens were donated, thanks to Courtney Weber, Anita Gross, Betty Pearson And Angela Read. We were able to give away 10 chickens. This is the third visit and we gave away chickens 23-32 thanks to generous donations.
SEVENTH-DAY ADVENTIST HOSPITAL AND ORPHANAGE HOME LOCATION
Our journey to this place wasn’t that difficult to locate, this one is been located at Ogbo- hill, still within Abia State in Nigeria.
On our getting to this place, everyone was happy seeing us both the kids, we discussed with the person in charge of the home and tell them of our mission and trying to get permission to take some pictures as a prove also which it was granted this time around. But it wasn’t easy here because the children will climb on you wanting you to carry them. Which makes them feel that loved.
SOME OF THE KIDS WERE SCARED OF THE LIFE CHICKEN BUT NOT WHILE EATING IT
On seeing the chickens we brought to them, some of them started crying because the were afraid of the birds so we try to make them stop crying, caring them to make them feel relax.
THIS IS THEIR ROOM WERE THEY SLEEP
There major concern here was clothes, foods and so on and we took pictures with them carrying them, playing with them a little and in this I can see that the kids needs that love, that motherly care or parental care, and it was nice knowing places like this seeing children who lost that parental care like us. This is to also create that room to people out there to also try as possible they can to also show this kids some love by visiting them and getting some things to them as we make them feel that love and not been left alone or forgotten.
