Reprieve may finally come to five widows with 35 children between them across Katsina State as German – based body, Bruder Hilfe Social Development Initiative, has concluded plans to construct five houses for them.
President of the Non – Profit Organization, Mary Bamigbe Bruder, made this known at the sidelines of the distribution of mobility charts, health equipment and relief materials to benefitting individuals and health institutions in partnership with Aminu Bello Masari Youth Empowerment Foundation (AMAYEF) in Government House, katsina.
Bruder revealed that the housing units would be constructed in Dutsi and Kusada Local Government Areas of the state, saying “we have just constructed a new building for one of the families, and hope to do same for other families.”
The Nigerian – born philanthropist promised that the group in collaboration with its international partners – Muriel Gordon Foundation and MEDSHARE International -would continue to put smiles on the faces of the less privileged in the state and Nigeria, arguing that Bruder Hilfe had stamped its footprints in Katsina.
“We have previously in partnership with AMAYEF implemented development projects in rural remote areas of the state including the distribution of over 300 mobility cart to people with disabilities, donated basic materials and health supplies to health centres as well as women, children and youth,” she noted.
According to her, the social initiative had over the last few years, while implementing development projects in Northern Nigeria, observed the deplorable plight of people in rural, remote and indigent communities, who most often lived poverty line and lacked financial resources to cater for themselves and their families.
She expressed delight over the partnership and support of Aminu Bello Masari, the governor of the state and initiator of AMAYEF to bring succour to the people of the state.
She stressed that Bruder Hilfe had been duly registered with Corporate Affairs Commission in Nigeria since 2017 as Non – Governmental Organization dedicated to improving health, education of children, youth and women in rural and urban societies as well as embarking on sustainable community development projects.
