We would like to inform you about the use of the money donated by you to support the families of Anas Ibrahim and Saleh Abdullahi. The final amount available is, plus some additional donations and minus the bank transfer fees, 3,342,200.00 Naira.
To assure the long-term financial support of the families, especially taking care of the children’s education, we have decided to use the option of a trust with regular payments. The trustee from Nigeria, Dr. Musa Hambolu, formerly director of the National Commission for Museums and Monuments and now with the University of Jos, has been a very good friend to us for many years and knows both the project and the villagers of Janjala very well. We are grateful for his willingness to act as a trustee and his efforts in this matter. He will use the money in close cooperation with us. We also would like to thank once again the organizers, Akinwumi Ogundiran, Zacharys Gundu and Willeke Wendrich, for the call for donations, all donors who used YouCaring or donated directly, and all others, who were involved in the organisation and transfer of the donated money.
Annika, Gaby, Hannes & Peter
