HAEF Donates Relief Materials to Kogi Flood Victims

More than 1,250 flood victims in Idozy village, a community in the Koton Karfe Local Government Area of Kogi State, have received food and clothing thanks to the Harvesters African Empowerment Foundation (HAEF), a humanitarian project Pastor Bolaji Idowu of Harvesters International Christian Centre started.

The lead project manager, Dinyambe Nyatua, speaking on the impact of the project, said: “The members of these communities are predominantly farmers, who have now lost their means of livelihood. Some of these villages are not easily accessible, so they receive little to no relief support. To bring smiles to the faces of people whose lives have drastically changed overnight is a gift we never want to stop giving through this foundation.”

He added: “As part of its continued efforts to eradicate poverty and hunger in Africa, HAEF is set to offer scholarships worth N15,000,000 to over 100 African undergraduates in a few months. The foundation aims to continue achieving SDG goals 1, 2, and 4, but there remains a massive funding gap that it hopes to close through donations from well-meaning supporters worldwide.”

Recall that 10 out of the state’s 21 councils recently found themselves under water due to flooding.

The flood had a significant impact on 471,842 individuals, according to the State Emergency Management Agency (SEMA), with 16 fatalities reported in the 514 communities affected.
