After her biggest medical donation to Cameroonian refugees in
The US-based Non-Governmental Organization through its CEO Dr. Belinda Babila launched the food drive immediately after her outreach to refugees in Nigeria last December 2018.
During her three-day outreach which ran from 14 through16 December 2018, Dr. Belinda noticed amongst other necessities, the urgent need for the refugees to get food on their tables.
To this effect, Dr. Belinda promised to come back in a no-distant future with food. She also promised to get in touch with partners who would help to realize a huge quantity that would be enough for all refugees, National Telegraph gathered.
Equipped with this information based on eyewitness reports, the CEO of BBF has urged people of goodwill to join her in the campaign by donating to the project. She mentioned that an average American spends at least twenty dollars ( $20) a day which is the cost of a bag of rice.
She further opined that people buy expensive items like cars dresses, and jewelries as such contributing $20 is not much but something for a refugee.
Speaking to National Telegraph, Dr. Belinda said, Thursday, February 21, 2019, her objective is to provide nutritional wherewithal to the refugees in Nigeria and IDP’s in Cameroon.
She said givers never lack and gave the link for payment as CashApp: 2142967209, Paypal:firstname.lastname@example.org, Zelle: 2149168240 and that check payments can also be sent to; Belinda Babila Foundation, 10935 Estate Lane No. 2, 38 Dallas TX 75238.
When asked why she has never been soliciting for help like other NGOs do, she said she prefers to work and let goodwill people see and decide to assist the refugees through her, adding that some people have already been responsive.
38-year old Dr. Belinda Babila is third in a family of seven. Her love for humanity pushed her to create the Belinda Babila Foundation; Heal the World Afrika.
