Hazel Academy in Bukuru Nigeria Wall Project

44719488_1603398551734759_r.jpegSeveral years ago, I spent a week at SIFAT (Servants in Faith and Technology) with my church's youth group. My son, Will, was serving as an intern at that time. I have returned every summer since then. Each time I leave, I am filled with awe for the missionaries that attend SIFAT and take their experiences back to their home countries and make lasting changes. God has placed them on my heart and called me to help where I can.

I am working with missionaries Aiana and Blossom to raise funds to install a secure fence around their school, The Hazel Academy in Nigeria. The school is in the open and needs a fence or wall for security reasons. In the northern part of Nigeria, several school have been raided and children abducted. The Nigerian government has ordered that fences or walls be installed around every school to forestall these security breaches and intrusions. If no fence or wall is installed around the school, the government is threatening to shut the school down. There are more than 60 children attending The Academy and receiving a Christian education. The total cost of the project is $15,140.

Now more than a year since we began, we're almost half way to our goal. The entire world has been affected by COVID-19. The Gulf Coast in Alabama and Mississippi have been plagued by hurricanes, but there are still needs in other parts of the world. Violence is becoming more of a problem inthe Plateau State and children are very often the victims. Please help Aina and Blossom give these children a safe place to learn and grow in their faith!
