Help Mary's family and the entire village to save this historical house! Mary is an old widow, that lives with her daughter and her grandchildren in this house.
The storming season is coming, and this is the last opportunity for Mary's family to put on safe their house and family. The house is too old for resist to an another storm and is really hurgent to start the works as soon as possible, otherwise this historical house could disappear!
The house was built more than 60 years ago for Akpan's family. This house suffered the passing of the time and of the copious rain storming that are common during the winter in Nigeria. But unfortunatly the economic situation of the family didn't allow theme to make works into the house and so, nowaday they can't live on safetly conditions there cause the roof is almost destroyed by the water infiltration and the walls and the furnishing are destroyed by the humidity.
This situation is very dangerous for the hosting of the house, in fact they are suffering several healting problems like asma, rheumatism and bronchitis. By the way, this family is really attached to that house, and like theme also all the citizens of their village, cause that house has an enormous historycal value. Their house, located in south-east Nigeria, in Atabong village, was the first house with up floor in the village and it was really important during the Biafra's war. Thanks to its strong walls could put on safe a lot of citizens from the shots of the guns.
I need your help for change the roof, the wooden beams and the ceiling; also we need to change the electric system and buy some basic furnishing for the house ( table, bed, matrass, chairs).
I hope that you could enjoy this campaign and help Mary's family and the entire village to save this historical house! I'm happy and greatfull that you are interested in our project.
Any contribution will be appreciated, thanks for your time!
