GHANAIAN actress Juliet Ibrahim
has said she is donating N1 million to
the victims of the devastating flood
in Benue.
Ibrahim made this known in a post
on Instagram on Monday.
Tha actress wrote: “Waking up
to news about so many natural
disasters happening around
the world has been extremely
devastating.
“The most recent ones that struck
me were ‘Hurricane Harvey’ in
Houston Texas, the mudslide’s in
Sierra Leone, and now the flooding
in Makurdi. Many families have lost
everything, and even worse, many
lives have been lost.
“I’ve once lived as a refugee, and
I know what it means to work for
something, and lose it all in the blink
of an eye.
“Hence my decision today, to
donate. Starting with the most recent
and nearest, I will be donating the
sum of 500,000 Naira and another
500,000 Naira on behalf of The Juliet
Ibrahim Foundation, to the Makurdi
flood victims.
“I am also using this opportunity
to challenge my fellow colleagues,
friends, and fans to join in. Let’s
help out by donating to this cause.
#MakurdiFloodReliefChallenge
“I need my friends to step up to
the challenge. Once you’ve accepted
the challenge, simply post or tweet
stating you have accepted and then tag
those you’d like to challenge. You don’t
have to announce the amount you are
donating. The goal is to raise 10 Million
Naira.
“Celebrities are doing their bit abroad
for the ‘Hurricane Harvey’ victims, and
I pray we can also do it over here for the
Makurdi flood victims.”
The Globacom ambassador urged
fellow celebrities to use the hashtag
#MakurdiFloodReliefChallenge
when making donations to the
cause.
“No amount is too small, let’s all
chip in,” she added.
Prior to Ibrahim’s gesture,
Nigerian-American artiste Jidenna
had also rallied entertainers to do
their bit to alleviate the plight of the
people of Benue.
