The Northern part of Ghana got flooded some few months ago and little or no support emanated from the celebrity fold in Ghana or elsewhere.
Good is good, positive is positive – no matter where it is done and Juliet Ibrahim, who was not reported to have made any donations to victims in the Northern Region, has done it in Nigeria -www.entertainmentgh.com can state!
Ghanaian actress, Juliet Ibrahim, is making waves in the news today and it’s not because of a movie – www.thenet.ng reports!
The gorgeous actress donated N1m to victims of the Benue flood which devastated Makurdi and left over 100,000 people displaced.
According to her, she was making a personal donation of N500,000 along with a N500,000 donation on behalf of her foundation.
She added that the goal was to raise N10m to help the victims, saying she could relate with the plight of the victims having lived as a refugee once.
Ibrahim also spoke about the disaster in a clip she posted on Instagram, tagging her fellow celebrities to come to the aid of Makurdi.
She wrote a message on her instagram page:
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 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.
