you’re invited

to attend a benefit gala in support of carry them

Join us for a night of food, fellowship, live music, and silent auction/raffle fun as we aim to raise $100,000 or more for our clinic expansion project as we are currently operating at capacity! Our goal is to expand our mission of supporting families impacted by severe acute malnutrition and the maternal mortality crisis in Nigeria.

What began as supporting a few local mothers and infants in need has become an operation in Jos, Nigeria saving hundreds of lives. It started in our living rooms in 2019 and eventually moved into a small flat around the corner in 2021. Even though we’ve grown from 10 clients at a time to 90+ clients at a time, we are still operating out of that rented flat. We know this space is not sustainable for the growing needs of these severely malnourished infants and their families. We need a new place, one that is more permanent and large enough to support many families in crisis. As we actively search for new properties to expand our reach, we wholeheartedly seek your partnership to raise a goal of $175,000 for our new location. Thank you, for coming alongside us in this mission and vision!
