Just a few months ago, the Lekki floods of 2017 made headlines after Lagos mainland residents began to make a mockery of the so called expensive Lekki area because of the floods. Ironically, just a week after the Lekki floods, photos emerged of a flooded mainland.

This goes to show that irrespective of class or geographic location, anyone anywhere can still be affected by a human/natural disaster of whatever form.

The city of Texas in the United States is currently suffering from the effects of Hurricane Harvey which have caused flooding that has seen up to 100,000 homes destroyed.

To support the Angel 4 life foundation, you can make donations either in Ikoyi or Lekki.

Ikoyi office:

47 Raymond Njoku street, Off Awolowo road, Ikoyi, Lagos. Or call Raymond on 08034277727.
