Save the Girl Child Advocacy, Delta State Nigeria, calls for interested partners on Door to Door Food Donation Campaign. It sounds great and commendable to give enough time for citizens and the poor to stock their homes with foodstuffs and daily needs so that within the next 14days beginning from April 1st, nobody is allowed to show the streets while supermarkets, markets, shops, and restaurants are under lock and key. It is certainly how to exhibit proactive leadership and display of value for life. It’s commendable.
It is our considered opinion that there should be a certain level of consideration and/or palliative care to curtain the effects of malnutrition, starvation, and deaths arising from the lockdown in some states in Nigeria.
Our appeal goes to wealthy business moguls across the world, rich and powerful individuals, elected representatives. This is the time to give back to society. Our people must not die as a result of hunger occasioned by COVID-19 state lockdown.
The Campaign proposes to distribute food items to citizens amongst these categories:
- Single mother
- Extremely challenge children
- Extremely challenge widows
- Families of COVID-19 Victims, if any.
The food items will be able to sustain them in the meantime. Each food bag will encompass a balance of food items that provide nutritional value to the body and can help feed a family of four for at least a month, thereby keying into the UN goals of ending world hunger by 2030.
The Campaign request the sum of $3000= 1084504.059 NGN to fund the project. $400 for mobilization, $100 for medical and safety apparatus, $2500 for food items at $50 per individual for 50persons.
To ignore this appeal is to say that those who cannot afford to stock food are entitled to die of starvation and malnutrition.
