Hey Guys,

We are trying to raise money for this family http://www.nairaland.com/nigeria/topic-801338.192.html

The total we are looking at is :

150,000
100,000
  50,000
-----------
300,000


100K should be able to stock the shop and that includes a portable fairly used Fridge and small Gen.

120K or less should sort out their accomodation.

60K for shop rent(might be less) for a year.

20K for the boy academics.1 full session sch. fees(3 terms),school books etc.

10K for stocking their kitchen.

I know times are kind of hard at the moment but you can put a smile on these family's face this xmas

Nothing is too small, we are just trying to help.

If you are able to help please show your interest on this thread

My opinion!! Hug transformer if it displeases you! tongue

r231:

I guess not!! But its in my nature to be pessimistic.

But just so you know, giving this family money wont solve their problems except you intend to do it every year! I have heard of far worse stories.

That said, I will commend your effort thus far in rallying people towards this cause. I would be more interested when we decide to help the helpless (like setting up a scholarship fund for those kids on the streets of Lagos and other cities that would be administered by Nairalanders) not giving money to a lazy Bottom man who just wouldnt go out and find even if its a menial job or even bus conductor sef!!

Goodluck my friend!

I still don't know why you think helping this guy is a bad idea.you keep talking about scholarship as if rallying round for such money will be an easy thing to do here.There are many poor people out there who ended up being poor not because it's their wish but they just found themselves in such situation.perhaps this guy was somewhat ok atleast as explained by the wife until things fell apart for him.however,getting him out of that horrible place;helping to put a roof on his head and solving his immediate problems is what he really needs now.
You just have realised that there is a life-time gap between wants and needs to some folks and if you can eat thrice daily and sleep in a nice room,maybe you should consider that the less privileged also deserve to be happy !
Re: Nairaland Charity Organisation- E-Helpers Network by huntamania: 9:40am On Nov 16, 2011
I feel as a group we shuld be able to create sumtin bigger dan provide 4 jhus dat family, prolly run programme where qualified kids kan be sent to skul. Tinkin of raisin jhus 300k seems short sighted to me. Aw bout we push ourselves and do greater tins. Just sayin

The less privilegde deserve to be happy!!

Those who are in a capacity to help should do so!

But even the bible says that he who would not work, should not eat!!

This man had a job before. Prolly a laborer with some company or whatever. He lost his job for whatever reason (which is understandable cos s'hit happens), he lost his good apartment cos he couldnt meet up with rent (which is also understandable), but for him to say that all he could raise in two years was 200 Naira with which his "pregnant wife" used to start up a purewater business upon which they have been feeding speaks of sheer laziness. Even the average begger on the streets makes atleast 500 Naira a day after meals.

This guy needs to go to a building site and start with a laborers job. They earn 1500 Naira per day! They work 6 times per week. When people say that there are no jobs in Nigeria, they are talking about blue collar jobs not menial jobs. I need to know that he is atleast making an effort before I am compelled to help him. If all he does is sit on his butt then I'm sorry I'm not buying. He is an able bodied man and apparently not mentally hadicapped either, so he should start by helping himself then whatever help that we decide to offer him would give him a boost.

But should we decide to rent him an apartment, pay his kids tuition for a term, foot the hospital bill of his pregnant wife, finance her petty trading  business and other such laudable things the r123 has listed out, and this man is still as lazy as he is now, it would be like putting money into a torn bag, cos he would be right back on the streets in a year (after the rent expires).

There are so many truly helpless people out there that with a little motivation, would lift themselves outta the slums. I just dont buy this guys tale. I'm sorry!
