Nairaland Charity Organisation- E-Helpers Network by r231(m): 11:15pm On Nov 12, 2011
http://www.nairaland.com/nigeria/topic-801338.64.html#bot

There has been a high response rate to the story above, based on the family's situation which has become quite critical.

A lot of Nairaland members have shown interest and would like to make contributions in various forms with money being the highest form.

The various contributions will help the family greatly and money will definitely help as this would help to rent them an apartment and feed the children especially.

Now we have had a number of other cases previously where members have to make monetary contributions to help other less privileged members and so as soon as we obtain the family's details we will ensure that we get it across.

With all this being said and based on the response rate along with various suggestions, we are considering the possibility of setting up a Nairaland Charity Org which will help cases like this.

Please indicate whether you are in support of and would like to be a part of this initiative by indicating YES OR NO below.

Please feel free to make additional suggestion.

100% in support.
nairaland is too big a forum not to be doing something for the common man!

I am in support of this. I suggest Nairaland contact a nonprofit global organization that specializes in cases similar to this.

They will set up a website where people can donate anonymously without identifying themselves because I think it will boost donation more than public donations in my opinion.

I suggest two trusted moderators establish themselves as a liason between Nairaland and global organization.

I have experiences in local, national, and global projects such as these and speaking from experience.

What do you guys think?

Hey people! kiss kiss kiss kiss kiss

I found an online school that teaches Certified nursing assistant. She can get her certificate in three months and join their alumni program which will help her find jobs in Nigeria.

I suggest husband start farming in his village until he is able to find gainful employment in the big cities.

From a medical perspective, the wife should consider Mirena which is IUD placed in her uterus to prevent pregnancies for five years. It is safe and doesn't require doctor visits unless she is having complications but according to my knowledge patients have minimal complaints about Mirena.

I agree with some chatters who said we need to provide solutions for other things instead of just giving them money. They need to be able to maintain income for survival and limit the amount of children until they are able to support them freely.

Re: Nairaland Charity Organisation- E-Helpers Network by Nobody: 2:08am On Nov 13, 2011
Couldnt we just all give a donation to a trustworthy person who has ties or is in Lagos? Or someone going there? In this case, direct to the family as soon as possible?

I'm not against a Nairaland charity Org, but it should be done transparently , and these that will receive these help should also first show their readiness to help themselves. This must be the basic foundation of the Organisation.

I made a suggestion, back in the family section on this topic. Seems "doable" to me
Re: Nairaland Charity Organisation- E-Helpers Network by Jencejyde(m): 10:09am On Nov 14, 2011
Good initiative! I'm in.

My fear is just how we would make sure that whatever is donated gets to the peoples intended.

Its a small world, and we all can never tell what the future holds for those whom we may be helping today.
