2016 Christmas was a time of celebration, appreciation and excitement as Efritin partnered with the Christmas on the streetz team to feed and celebrate with the less privileged in the Makoko area of Lagos.
Makoko is a slum area located in Lagos. It’s an underdeveloped area that is seen as being forgotten by the government as residents of the area suffer from poor drainage, dilapidated houses on water, communicable diseases e.t.c.
The yearly event popularly called “Christmas on the Streetz” will not be forgotten so soon in the minds of people that benefited from it. As we all know that the country has been facing some economic challenges that have made it difficult for people to meet up with their daily needs, let alone feed themselves. This and many other reasons made this event a very timely one. Food items, clothes, diapers, stationery, provisions, books, toys and other items were distributed to the people to make up for some of their needs. Aside these, Health care specialists were present to check some of the children.
Also, teenage girls were given sanitary pads, pain reliever and also screened for Hepatitis.
Efritin.com partnered with the team to make the event an outstanding success.
Volunteers served selflessly to put smiles on the faces of the kids to make the event an unforgettable one. Below are some of the pictures from the event.
