Help us feed the most vulnerable in our community !!
Let's talk about Hunger!
One of the immediate effects of the COVID-19 Lockdown is Hunger in vulnerable communities where the need for impactful interventions are exacerbated during this period.
The REACH; Reach Every Communal Household was set up and is dedicated to ensure that we support this need in Rivers State, Nigeria.
Our Vision is "To reverberate the culture of generosity in Nigeria”
Our Mission is "To impact the lives of the vulnerable "
Our Current Activity “To feed the Vulnerable during COVID-19 Lockdown and beyond"
Our intent is to reach and feed 300 households every week for 12 weeks. So far, we have been able to reach approximately 630 households in two weeks. By making a gift to The REACH COVID-19 Response Fund, you are helping The REACH ensure that the vulnerable are not left hungry, or their children malnourished thereby making them more vulnerable and susceptible to the virus.
In most African countries it is averaged that $0.30c which is approximately N124/meal can feed a low income household. However, in Nigeria, it cost about an average of $0.63-0.75 which is approximately N250-N300/meal. An average household in Nigeria comprises of 5 persons, we envisage that with an expense of N1000 per person, our packs should last a week. It is also worthy to note that our food items are secured directly from local farmers, this calls for a more sustainable and valuable supply chain.
We have curated a food pack with non-perishable food items per household at a cost of N5000 ($12.50) each. We estimate that we require N1.5 million ($3750) per week to reach our target.
We have a pool of 80 dedicated volunteers who have signed up to support this outreach for free. They are providing admin, project management, logistics and on the ground support. With their dedicated support we are able to ensure that every contribution received goes directly towards the cost of food packs and directly towards the intervention.
We cannot do this alone, we require your support and support from well- meaning individuals like yourselves to make this happen. By making a gift to Project REACH COVID-19 Response Fund, you are helping The REACH purchase necessary PPE's like N95 masks, gowns, gloves, hand sanitizers for volunteers whilst aiding in ensuring that the vulnerable are not left hungry.
Help us reach 300 Households per week
3600 households in 12 weeks.
Together we can keep hunger out, together we can reduce the worst impacts of COVID 19, while keeping our communities safe and secure.
