When In Need Foundation has been supporting and helping children in addition to expanding its global footprint to various countries, such as Nigeria, Liberia, Dominican Republic, Turks and Caicos and The Bahamas. The foundation has been producing successful outcomes through their efforts by saving the lives of children, and improving their living conditions. When In Need Foundation, which has been privately funded since inception, has been able to support children in need with food, diapers, household items and other amenities. When In Need Foundation is pleased to announce the success of their efforts within the past month.
The foundation visited the OrfanatoNiños de Cristo orphanage in the Dominican Republic led by CEO, Ms. Chetachi Ecton. The orphanage houses and feeds over 160 children from the Dominican Republic and Haiti who have been victims of abuse or were abandoned. Members of the foundation brought smiles to the children when they presented the facility with stacks of supplies, food and household items. In addition, the foundation will now sponsor three-year-old Angelina, which will cover her food, clothing and shelter, as well as play a supporting role in her future.
On April 3, 2015, in celebration of Easter, the Port-Harcourt team of the When In Need Foundation, led by Mr. Darlington Ohaeri, visited the Saviour's Orphanage (Land of Blessings) in Rivers State, Nigeria, to donate diapers, supplies, household items and food. The organization aimed to brighten the Easter holiday for the children by completing their Mission of Mercy initiative. About 98% of the children at the facility were picked up by the side of the road after being abandoned. The children range in age from 8 months to 15 years and were very happy to receive the assistance of the When In Need Foundation. When In Need also paid for little Michael Ambrose's successful emergency surgery, a two year old that had been diagnosed with hemorrhoids. The organization worked tirelessly with his medical team at Chrismade Hospital, Port-Harcourt for his speedy recovery.
