The Boko Haram insurgency has resulted in close to 2,000,000 Nigerians being driven from their homes. Half of the internally displaced are children, with an estimated 20,000 currently separated from their families.
The Favoured Sisters Christian Foundation in Jos, headed by Naomi Mankilik, is home to 241 children who have been orphaned by the conflict in north-east Nigeria.
The orphanage was a primary filming location for the television drama series In Love & Ashes and Muffy and Trudi witnessed first-hand the incredible work that Naomi and her small team are doing to accommodate, feed and educate the children in their care.
Despite its great work, the Foundation receives no government funding and relies on private donations to continue its mission. PIOTP is committed to providing financial support to the orphanage and can vouch for the positive impact that any gifted money makes on the lives of these children.
