Corona Virus Update

Dear Friends and Partners of Life Builders Ministries International,

We are so grateful to all of you who have given generously to help us during this Coronavirus Pandemic. Our goal as an organization is to help the poverity-stricken and most vulnerable souls in and around our community. With your help, we have been able to curb the frequency of this virus and the harshest effects for our people - lack of access to food and supplies. Below is a video presention by Dr. Emmanuel Oluwayemi, our President, outlining all we have accomplished thus far.

There is still great need in our community and with our sponsored orphans and widows, as long as the government has instituted the shutdown.

We would like to continue to serve our community with food and basic needs, but we need your help. As you can see in the Financial Report below, we have used all of the generous donations we have received from you.  We will continue to help as long as we are able.

We feel very blessed to have such caring friends and partners who have helped to make a difference in the lives of God's most vulnerable society. 

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

Life Builders Board of Directors


 

This is just one of our advertisements to let our community know we are there to help. We had thousands of people respond and they so appreciated our help.
