NGO Supports Women Farmers in Cross River

Rise and Thrive Humanitarian Foundation has generously donated fertilizers and farm implements to support women farmers in Calabar South, Cross River State. The donation occurred during the “A Blessing to Humanity Outreach,” an event organized by the foundation and aimed at around five hundred women farmers at the Airport Signal Field in Calabar South.

Addressing those present at the outreach, Cleo Nelson-Adoga, the director and founder of the Rise and Thrive Humanitarian Foundation, emphasized that they were on a mission from God to alleviate the challenges faced by the farmers. She mentioned that the foundation conducted a survey revealing the women’s need for these items, prompting their intervention.

“We are trying to help the helpless and give back to society. We will be distributing fertilisers and farm tools and also giving them light by sharing the word of God to ensure that their lives are changed.

“There is so much hardship in the world, and this is our way of making things a bit light for these people. The women informed us that they need fertiliser because this is the dry season and will help their crops blossom, so we decided to help in that area.”

Cleo Nelson-Adoga expressed her joy in putting smiles on the faces of the farmers and impacting their lives positively. She concluded by advising the women to continue staying close to God, maintaining their faith, and always believing in Him.
