New Filtration System Delivered – June 2019

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Location: Stadium IDP Camp international Rescue Committee(IRC), Nigeria.

Issue:

Families were left separated, broken and alone through the affects of devastating floods that occurred earlier this year in various villages around Ngala, Nigeria. The aftermath is only where troubles began, people started getting sick due to unclean water sources, the floods being a main cause and overpopulated camps, that can’t sustain as many people that they have. Waterborne diseases such as cholera, started to infiltrate many people and this alone killing 1000’s. It gets worse day by day as men, women, children can’t clean, feed or hydrate themselves without the help of clean, filtered water, giving them very little chance of survival.

These internally displaced people are facing variety of issues, but the basic human need of clean water is the biggest need. They’ve had to face terrorist organisations such as Boko Haram that are continually harassing, killing and running people out of their own villages – thus resulting in these people becoming IDP. We have a responsibility to help our fellow human and to protect the future of Africa, they need help all over the African continent, and we are determined to help resolve as many issues as possible and create an abundance of opportunity and health.

What are we doing to help:

We have now provided another ‘Lifestraw Community Filtration System’, which will help filter dirty water and help make it safe for consumption, washing, cooking and so on. It will help provide 70-100 people with clean, filtered water for the next 5-7 years, helping drop the numbers of casualties faced due to these unclean water sources. Images attached below show the real people behind the stories and who are currently benefitting from the Lifting Africa Foundation’s partnership with Lifestrpaw and their life saving products. This is only made possible if you’re able to change your clothing to a life saving wardrobe, we only ask you to change the way you purchase your clothing and rather purchase your high quality clothing from LiftingAfricaClothing.com as every single sale contributes to the Lifting Africa Foundation and their life changing projects like ‘Project Water’.

Location: Old Naledi, Gaborone, Botswana.

The Tsholofelong Children & Youth Trust is located in Old Naledi (Gaborone, Botswana). The centre is a small plot with basic facilities that relies on donations to help provide a safe and happy environment, Monday-Friday for vulnerable children in the local area. By vulnerable we mean children who come from broken homes, from being neglected, to both parents abusing alcohol and will sell whatever they can to fuel their intake, to parents/single parents that simply cant afford to feed their own children let alone themselves. The centre does it’s part by providing food at least once a day(when funding is available), try to create an environment of creativity, from helping with the children’s homework to providing educational games and activities.

Facilities available

  • 1 Hall – equipped with chairs and recently donated tv
  • 1 Small kitchen – 1 large freezer, 1 fridge/freezer, sink, oven to help prepare and keep food fresh
  • 1 Library – Includes only a box of irrelevant books and 4-5 computers that do not work
  • 1 Outside play area – Where children can play/do homework
  • 1 Small outside space for a vegetable patch

What do they need?

The centre is in constant need of help, these kids need some positive guidance in their life, else there is not much chance for a bright future but rather a future filled with poverty, no opportunity and potential crime if we don’t intervene. The buildings are old, slightly dilapidated, their facilities as mentioned need much attention, the children need a constant supply of food, warmth, clean water, educational supplies, as well as positive inspiration and more opportunities and chances at a better life.

How are we going to help?

The Lifting Africa Foundation has stepped in and has promised to help turn this centre around. ‘Fitness Making A Difference’ is our motto and we are now using fitness to actually make a difference, as the Lifting Africa team in Botswana is starting to host Lifting Africa Workouts in the capital city that is Gaborone. These workouts are for people who are not only determined to get their sweat on but motivated to help others along the way, as they are literally working out for a great cause, run by some of our most experienced and qualified personal trainers.

How does this help the children’s centre? For every person joining the workout they will firstly pay a fee for their participation and on top of that they can bring a donation of physical goods that we can take to the centre to benefit the children (i.e. Tin goods, blankets, educational material etc). 100% of the funds we receive from the workouts will be use to purchase what the children’s centre needs most each month, from food to more expensive needs like upgrading the facilities.

This is for the long term

Lifting Africa Workouts is starting in Gaborone, Botswana, however we will be using this process next in Johannesburg, South Africa. We will target projects where the least fortunate are most in need in their local communities. We won’t stop there, we will go overseas to expand our audience, but note all proceeds that are taken in other non-African countries will be still used by our Foundation on African soil.

First 4LSC to Nigeria Crisis

By | Projects | No Comments

We are very happy to announce that from all your support, with the first month of sales from Lifting Africa Clothing we have already been able to fund the start of our first mission within PROJECT WATER.

There is no better way to kick start the new year than to help provide a location in dyer need of a vital resource such as clean, filtered water.

LOCATION: IDP Camp, Ngala, Nigeria.

ISSUE: Detrimental flooding causes mass outbreak of cholera due to lack of clean water and sanitation, 10’s of thousands affected.

HOW ARE WE HELPING: We have used the recent available funds to purchase 4 LifeStraw Community Filtration Devices. Each one will be able hold enough clean, filtered water for up to 70-100 people at a time. Lifetime span of 25’000 gallons, enough for 100 people for 3-5 years.

HOW IT WORKS: Due to the lack of access to clean water, the IDP camp (Internally Displaced Person: usually forced to move due to war, environmental disaster etc) have no other option than to drink unfiltered water, running extremely high risk to infection and diseases such as cholera, in which has already claimed many lives, so clean water is a necessity to preserve life. All they need to do is retrieve unfiltered water and pour it into the device, it is that easy, and now they have a fighting chance!

Join a real movement, inspired through clothing, help us help change millions of lives.
