The second week of June welcomed us with the Twitter ban by the federal government of Nigeria. Following the temporary suspension of twitter, the foundation was unable to put an outpost on our Twitter platform. However, our other social media platforms were engaged with posts and happenings in the foundation.
The management of the foundation during a meeting with team members urged us to be security conscious and abide by the government rule as regards the Twitter ban.
Cases were allocated to and handled by team members on different levels. One of the cases handled was the medical bills of a young man who needed to begin treatment for an ailment he had been trying to manage for a while. The sum of N20,000 was disbursed to him after all investigation had been carried out.
The foundation was successfully able to help a recipient achieve her dream of owning a popcorn producing machine. After writing to the foundation requesting help with purchasing the machine, she was helped with the sum of N30,000 which was the needed amount for the machine.
On last week’s episode of school fees, the sum of N40,000 was disbursed to a beneficiary who was, in turn, able to complete his school fees payment.
Not a week goes by without us handling a case on feeding. The economy is in a bad shape hence the difficulty to feed due to the inflation of prices of food items in the market. The sum of N20,000 was sent to a recipient to enable her to buy food items for her family.
However, some cases were declined because some recipients were not cooperative enough while others were trying to defraud the foundation.
Security tips and other healthy tips were sent out via our Instagram and Facebook platform. Be sure to check them out @stilliriseorg and Still I Rise organization respectively.
