£950 of £10,000 goal

Raised by 19 people in 25 months
My name is Dafe Otite and I live in the United Kingdom am supporting the The Lovatt Foundation .Org operating in Northern Nigeria.

I heard of Fiona Lovatt and the work she is doing last year. However, I had the opportunity to meet her live for the first time in November 2016 at a discussion meet with the aim of bringing her work to a wider audience.

I intend to raise as much as possible to assist her work and will be sending moneys on a monthly basis via bank transfers to her in Nigeria, assisting ordinary people give their widow's mite in the face of a hostile financial/ remittances environment prevalent in the country at this time.

The funds will be spent mainly on the four key areas of her work as below:

Children of Borno (COB): Shelter for up to 150 children orphaned by the Terrorist Organisation Boko Haram in 5 secure locations in Kano and Maiduguri. Money to be spent on rent, food, education (books, pens etc and running the shelters
