NEWS:House of Justice To Raise N100 Million From Dec. 2020 – Nov. 2021 To Support Rebuilding Of Homes In Southern Kaduna

“Every end of the year, House of Justice hosts an annual Summit and Banquet that pulls together a national and international audience from all walks of life. In 2020, we have had to substitute that event for the more urgent and pertinent task of reinforcing the value of human life in Nigeria.

“Our first call is Southern Kaduna, an area that has perpetually been in the news for mind-boggling destruction of lives, property, cultural heritage and dignity. The long term effects of the violence has left many hungry, homeless, without means of livelihood and traumatized. The COVID-19 pandemic has met a bleeding community that is gasping for existence.” the text reads in part

The human rights lawyer, Ballason, said Justice mustn’t be pursued in courts only, hence, the organization has embarked on a project to rebuild Southern Kaduna Communities and restore education of their children by raising the sum of N100 Million

She said, “As a public interest firm, we understand that our pursuit of justice in the court room will make no meaning if the bond of humanity outside the courts is broken.

“It is in the light of this that House of Justice leads the Southern Kaduna Resilience Fund (SKARF) Project as an effort to join in rebuilding the communities, restore livelihoods and education for the children of the affected areas.

“From 1st December, 2020 to 30 November 2021, House of Justice and its present 6,477 partners across 25 countries will raise the sum of N100 Million naira ($250,000) to support the rebuilding of homes, livelihood and education in Southern Kaduna. House of Justice as an organization commits to a 5-year education support from January 2021- December 2025 as its corporate social responsibility.”

Furthermore, House of Justice said it has partnered with two Non-governmental Organizations and is calling on individuals and other organizations to support the project.

According to the statement, the most pressing need of the Southern Kaduna community is to go back to their homes as over 100 communities have been taken over by bandits

She said, “While we recognize that the amount and commitment is modest, we do not underestimate the generosity of the human spirit and the fact that it is only in extending our humanity to others that anyone truly lives. It is on that note that we invite you to join with us to replace tears and suffering with dignity and hope.

“House of Justice is honoured to work with two community NGOs, the Resilient Aid and Dialogue Initiative (RADI) and Kunak Foundation as implementing partners on this mission and calls on organizations, corporations and individuals to support this initiative and give of themselves and their resources. Every thing of value that you give can and will make a difference.

“The needs assessment we carried out has shown that the biggest need and priority of the victims in Southern Kaduna is to be able to return back to their homes. As it stands residents of over 100 communities have been sacked and those communities have been occupied by bandits and marauders.”

The House of Justice also called on President Buhari to rise to the occasion in line with his constitutional mandate to secure the people of Southern Kaduna.

They also called for support of volunteer psychologists, counselors

The statement reads in part, “We call on the President and Commander in Chief of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, President Muhammadu Buhari to rise to his constitutional responsibility as enshrined in sections 14 and 17 of the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria to provide security and welfare and to ensure that governmental actions are humane and anchored on the ideals of freedom, equality and justice not just in Southern Kaduna but in all parts of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

“We request for volunteer counselors, psychologists, trauma assistants and teachers who can work in camps and the affected communities.We kindly request for donations that will go into rebuilding houses in the communities and for the support of means of livelihood and education.

“We will leave no one behind on this mission. On 18 December, 2020 House of Justice Crew Members and Volunteers will lead their commitment at a Cocktail. From 19-22 December 2020 we shall work with children and teenagers who will lead a resource mobilization drive to share their food, clothes and education materials with children like them in the affected communities.

“On behalf of House of Justice and the implementing partner organizations, we thank you for joining us in this mission of rebuilding dignity and hope. Long live Kaduna state. Long Live Nigeria And may God Heal the World.”
