I have always heard of/seen children with amputated limbs but I have never been able to really help other than giving alms on the road but about two days back, someone contacted me from Irede Foundation and informed me about the Project 1000 they are working on. I decided to search the internet for whatever they have previously done to be sure it was not a scam.
I also have a Special Announcement for you all, so please read till the end.
I found out that The Irede Foundation has been putting out a lot of information on major news media about their work and they even held an awareness walk sometime back so I decided to accept the proposal and share with you all.
An estimated 200 million are born with disability or are disable by the age of 19, children living with limb loss (either congenital or acquired ) feel different from their peers. The cost of an artificial limb is a heavy financial burden for most families, especially considering that child amputees outgrow their limbs as regularly as they outgrow clothing.
The IREDE Foundation is a foundation set up to give child amputees love, hope and joy, over the last 3 years they have given out 32 prosthesis and replaced 10 prosthesis. The Irede Foundation assists with the costs of standard artificial limbs and ongoing adjustments and repairs.
Project 1000 is a campaign set up in order to raise funds to helps get prosthesis for child amputees, they are calling on 1000 people to help give N1000( one thousand naira) which will help a child amputee get a prosthesis and in turn put a smile on their faces.
Individuals are encouraged to refer any child with limb loss within their immediate environment. To donate funds for this cause, you can do so through;
Account name: The Irede Foundation Bank name: FCMB – 3731345014

Personally, I believe this is for a good cause and if it puts a smile on someone’s face, then we should be happy to do it. Whatever you can afford (maybe more than 1000), please donate and in return I pray God would continually put a smile on your face. Please share with your friends and family and let’s make this work.
