Description

AshesUnite x PIII hosts:

N3lewa: | Ni-Lay-Wa| v. 1. Harmonious relations; freedom from disputes. [From the Kanuri tribe of West Africa]

An event to raise funds for the Madinatu Camp in Borno Maduiguri, Nigeria. Madinatu is a Camp for Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs). In Maiduguri alone, there are over 100,000 IDPs. 90% of the population of the camps are displaced as a result of insurgency attacks by Islamists such as Boko Haram.

Currently, camps across the North Eastern Region of Nigeria are suffering the inevitable crisis of shortage of food. As of August 2016, there were a total of 302 househoulds in the MADINATU CAMP. Our goal is to raise enough funds for 350 gifts baskets that we intend to give to families in this camp. The content of the basket will include various provisional items that are a necessity to each family. These items include: sanitary pads, Indomie, diapers, mosquito net, Paracetemol and necessary vitamins, 3 yards of clothe to sew clothing, coloring books and crayons; all made in Nigeria

With an exclusive partnership with the region's very own Fati Abubakar showcasing her captivating work of the lives of the Kanuri people at Soze Gallery, we present to you a cultural evening like no other where you will be transported to Borno state and back.

You are invited to come join us on this journey to CHANGE A LIFE!
