13 Jul Rungas Relief Fund 2020 #RungasReliefChallenge
Rungas foundation in collaboration with Butterfly Effect Empowerment Initiative have launched a monetary relief fund to provide assistance to Nigerians who have been negatively impacted by COVID 19 pandemic.
The COVID-19 pandemic has deeply impacted the world, crippling societies, economies and various systems across the globe. Most countries are still figuring out how best to handle it and Nigeria being Africa’s most populous nation is at greatest risk of an overwhelming spread. As such government ordered lockdowns were put in place to help curb the spread and flatten the curve.
While some have been able to capitalise off the pandemic, others have been left in vulnerable positions. Government palliatives can only go so far, so Civil Society Organisations and well meaning Nigerians have launched and implemented different projects to support the poor and vulnerable during this time. This is where the Rungas relief project seeks to come in.
Nigerian citizens are invited to apply for a relief grant by submitting a one page write up to firstname.lastname@example.org and a 1 minute video explaining how the pandemic has impacted their lives/their work/their society and how the relief funds will transform said situation.
A total amount of N450,000 will be granted to select applicants who are about to demonstrate how the grant will be transformational.
The selection of applicants will be transparent and fair – 10 winners will be selected – 2 winners of N100,000 – 4 winners of N50,000 – 2 winners of N25,000
Please also note that aside from the provision of quick monetary grants, the Rungas relief project will include collaboration with other non-profit organisations who may be able to provide more long term assistance to the participants.
