Rubies Ink Initiative for Women and Children has put smiles on the faces of 100 seniors and vulnerable in Alimosho LGA and Makoko community with it’s Christmas Food Drive initiative. The project was funded through the support of the public.

The team went into the two communities to give food packages to the elderly in a bid to make them happy and feel loved.

Speaking on the Christmas food drive for the aged, the founder of Rubies Ink, Esther Ijewere said; “Old age is a blessing, we need to continuously make our seniors feel loved and appreciated. The pandemic has taught us to live in the moment and be intentionally kind, that’s one of the reasons we supported our seniors this festive season, in our bid to spread love and light. We appreciate our donors for their unwavering and continuous support over the years.”

Project Coordinator, Michelle Inegbese said; “This is what we love to do, supporting those in need, and putting smiles on faces. Our seniors deserve that and much more. We hope to do this more often”.

Rubies Ink has been into advocacy, empowerment, and development projects since 2008, and runs multiple projects, empowerment workshops, trainings, campaigns, media advocacy, and women’s outreach programmes centered on domestic violence, gender equality and women’s health.

They also organise an annual Walk against Rape campaign, celebrated over 1000 exceptional women through their womenofrubies.com platform, and raise funds online for women and children in urgent need of medical and other support.
