Dear Partner,

We reach indigent children on the streets, in schools, orphanages, IDP camps, communities and other child centered institutions. More often than not, these children are connected to a family. Strengthening a family has been one of our approaches in breaking the cycle of poverty. Read below an inspiring story of a family you empowered through your partnership with us.

Family Strengthening & Livelihood; Breaking the Cycle of Poverty

Mrs Gloria Edeh couldn't hold back her tears as she described how frustrating life had been for her before she came in contact with the InnerCity Mission. Her husband had lost his job and they were evicted from their accommodation as a direct result. Poverty stared them in the eye as they had nothing to survive on.

She was enrolled into the Family Strengthening & Livelihood Program, where she received food assistance and learnt how to start up a small scale buisness. Soon enough, she saved enough money to start up an Eatery. She got her family a decent house to live in from the profit of her buisness.

Now, she can adequately cater for her children, keeping them out of poverty and its resultant effects.

Women in North-West Nigeria Supported with Food Items

Our institutional Partners in Christ Embassy Kano reached out to families in Zango Brigade and Sabon Gari communities in North-West Nigeria with the Family Strengthening & Livelihood Program. The women received their 1st Food Aid package last week; this provides food security for their family and helps them focus on gaining and developing ideas for a startup to sustain their means of livelihood.

Emergency Food Response in Hong Kong

Many are yet to recover from the harsh socio-economic impact of the Corona Virus lockdown. We have reached thousands of families with our Emergency Food Response during and after the lockdown. Last week, our partners in Hong Kong reached an Homeless Shelter in Mong Kok in the city of Kowloon, with boxes of food supplies to support the home. The home manager was very grateful to receive support at this time.
