Prosthetics for Lekan
When the robbers’ bullets shattered my leg, I thought it was over.
Doctors were left with no choice but to amputate my leg after hospitals delayed my treatment. What can I say? It was that or death.
I hung on to life, everyone promised to help, and many did. I thank them all.
But there’s only so much friends and relatives can do for you when they have responsibilities of their own.
Two years I’ve been unable to work. But one pair of prosthetic can change my family’s story. Give me a chance to provide for my little daughter – and not have her at the mercy of the world like I’ve been for two years.
Friends of Vivian Oyefuga are rallying to help this 2019 graduate of McPherson University, Ogun State secure her withheld certificate.
Financial difficulties prevented her from graduating with her peers, with the situation eventually resulting in an extra-year for Vivian, further compounding her financial obligations and woes.
Owing tuition fees for the extra year led to her being denied convocation privileges with her peers. Her certificate, being held by the Bursary department has further limited her opportunities to progress in life. If her parents could pay the outstanding, they would. But things have been uncharacteristically tough. and like a Catch-22, lack of this certificate is affecting her ability to secure a graduate job that could have financed payment for the debt to the university.
What stands between this bright graduate and progress is the outstanding N500,000 due her alma mater.
She has been set back two years due to this unfortunate conundrum.

Remember Our Teachers
With academic activities halted in March due to the outbreak of Coronavirus, many schools have been unable to pay their staff salaries. School fees account for over 90% of schools’ revenue. The shutdown has made it almost
impossible for salaries to be paid.
Even if things return to normal, it may be difficult for parents to pay up timely making the backlog more difficult to be cleared and teachers’ welfare even more difficult.
This campaign aims to provide the much-needed palliative required to cushion the effect of the non-payment of salaries on teachers. Funds raised will be disbursed to the affected teachers after due diligence and verification.
