Description

Joseph Ihedigbo Charity Foundation, Inc. - When I visited  Nigeria in 2009, I was greatly disturbed by the level of hardship and poverty people were enduring. It brought back a lot of memories for me having grown up in that same environment.

The economic hardship has basically made a bad situation worse. On that trip I made a commitment to myself and God that I must do something to make a difference. It was time to rise up and remember the voiceless. These are people left in the rural villages of Africa with no clean water to drink and no resources for education. They have no money to get even the basic needs of life like food, shoes, shelter, etc. Parents work in their farms from morning till dawn with nothing to show for it.

They manage to provide barely one meal for their family, which sometimes doesn’t contain the proper nutrients the body needs to grow. Most of these families are so large that the food is never enough. Many children go to bed hungry each night. For the fact that most of these adults have no access to any form of medical care, advice or education, most of them end up having more children than they can take care of.

These children are neglected, hungry and scarred for life. When you see them, fear and absolutely no hope in life, lies deep in their eyes.
