The KIEK Foundation is an Abuja-based NGO that is making tremendous impact on the lives of the disadvantaged and vulnerable children since its inception in 2018.
The Executive Director of the foundation, Barr. Mrs Ebele Iyiegbu who disclosed this in a press statement noted that the organisation was established with a mission to restore hope to the less privileged children by combating poverty globally through quality education, healthcare and nutrition to enable them to actualise their potential.
She stated that the foundation with the support of its partners and donors has so far impacted on the lives of over 18,000 disadvantaged women and children across major cities in Nigeria through several of its project notable among them being the Compassion Action Outreach, the Buzz Off Malaria project, the Street To Class Project (a project designed to reduce the number of out of school children in Nigeria) and the Rural Area Children and Teenagers in Information and Communication Technology (RACT-IN-ICT), an educational initiative which is aimed at imparting the knowledge of ICT on the children and teenagers living in rural communities.
Through its Covid-19 Relief Project, the KIEK foundation reached out to 340 disadvantaged families with relief packages containing food items and toiletries to ease their plight during the lockdown imposed on the FCT, Lagos and Ogun states by President Muhammadu Buhari to contain the spread of the dreaded Covid-19 pandemic.
The foundation is presently feeding 200 vulnerable Muslims daily for the whole of the Ramadan season as part of its Ramadan Feeding/Compassion Action Outreach project which was conceived with the aim of catering for disadvantaged and vulnerable Muslims who live within and around the FCT-Abuja that cannot afford to go out to fend for themselves during this Ramadan season as a result of the lockdown.
By the end of the 30-days Ramadan fast, it is expected that a total number of 6,000 persons would have benefited from the feeding programme.
