19 August 2017 marked World Humanitarian Day and staff of Aluko & Oyebode, Nigeria’s foremost commercial law firm and the firm’s friends from Emmanuel & Rachel Foundation came to spend it with some of the displaced women we support and their children. They brought along donations of food items, toiletries & sanitary items. The women received these with great joy and prayers for the donors.
Mrs D, speaking on behalf of the women, thanked our August visitors. She went on to share some of their experiences as displaced women with children and expressed the hope that more groups would come forward to provide support to help them become more self-sufficient and move into safer housing.
Oludare Senbore, Partner at the law firm, thanked the women for allowing the firm come to celebrate the day with them and said they hoped to do more to empower the women in the future.
Aluko & Oyebode were accompanied by the Emmanuel & Rachel Foundation.
It was a lovely sunshiney day and the women and their children left happy!
