LPOH 4.0 | Leaving Prints on 145 Families Despite COVID-19

Like every other intentional organization, we had plans for 2020. But we soon realized that those plans would gradually fade away with the year if we did nothing, especially since we cancelled our PadATeen outreach in March. No thanks to COVID-19.

If you’ve been following us for a while, you should be familiar with our annual community outreach- Leaving Prints On Hearts (LPOH). We were convinced that we would either have to cancel the 4th edition this year or it would take a different turn. The latter seemed more like the case but the question was HOW?

We understand that it’s not been a good time for most people during this period, including our volunteers, as we struggle with finances while trying to stay safe and sane. But then, we wanted to leave prints on hearts and based on previous experiences, we knew it would be worth it if we touched at least one life.

Then came our last minute decision: A FOOD DRIVE!

The initial plan was to do it individually in our locations but we eventually resorted to coming together in twos and threes. The result was providing food to 145 families in six locations across Nigeria and The Gambia over the past weekend.

A breakdown? We got you!
