Our initiatives under the Charitable Trusts umbrella are aimed at providing support or lending credence to legit nonprofits organisations and their causes. What we would do is understand their needs and partner with them to provide the support we can, one of which is leveraging our platform to collect donations online for worthy causes. In addition, we would leverage our growing network to bring attention to the needs of these organisations and call on willing partners to provide the help they need.

It is in this line that we call on ‘you’ to provide support for and to the MBHL Lagos, Nigeria.

From a recent visit to the Motherless Babies Home (where we had organised our maiden Pop Up Art Class, click POPUP @ MBHL to read previous article) we had the opportunity of speaking with the administrators of the home  to understand the needs of the home. In discussing their needs, we were handed a list (see list below) of items the home needs on a regular basis but there were items that seemed like priority at the time of the visit. One of which is the request for ceiling fans and these are needed to cool down the dining hall area, as the current system is ineffective to cool down the area. The request for the fans is not to say MBHL wouldn’t need air-conditioners, however, we guess it is easier and cheaper to deal with fans when power becomes an issue and they have to run a small generator to manage their power needs.
