The EYN Disaster Ministry continues its work in Northeast Nigeria. In October:
2 food distributions were held for 1600 people ($12,419)
25 homes were re-roofed ($11,430)
3 boreholes were drilled (1 motorized with an overhead tank) for 3 communities reaching over 2000 with clean water ($10,686)
2 trauma workshops for 42 individuals whose lives are forever changed with the message of forgiveness and assistance in living with trauma ($1776)
While we celebrate the work done we also acknowledge the many challenges faced by the Disaster Ministry as they continue this vital work.
There is still insecurity in some areas. There is fear of Herdsmen destruction of farms while participating in the trauma workshops. The bad roads make it very difficult to reach some of the communities with roofing materials. The high demand for assistance is always greater than the resources available.
