Dolapo, a faithful sister in Christ, endured a childhood of hardship. At the age of eight, Dolapo was forced to quit school and work at a bar to help provide for her family. Working during school hours and late evenings, Dolapo’s uncle took notice of this and spoke with her father. Pleading for his niece and her future that was at risk, Dolapo’s father willingly released her into her uncle’s care. Dolapo’s has been in a great family unit since then and is an active member in the Lagos Church. She is currently attending school and is looking forward to graduating.
When the pandemic struck in Nigeria, Dolapo’s aunt and uncle were both laid off from their jobs. Her aunt and uncle are seeking $300 in assistance from brothers and sisters to help them during this time. Their plan is to continue paying for Dolapo’s education and buy groceries for their family.
