OAP, TV personality Toolz visited Dustbin Estate located in Ajegunle, Lagos . Tolu shared her experience through her Instagram page.
Read what she said below;
Went to the Dustbin Estate in Ajegunle for the first time to donate food and I’m still lost for words. The people there build their houses with planks on refuse dumps. I spoke with the community leader and he said that the government forget about them. Most of the houses were smaller than my bedroom and had to accommodate whole families sometimes. There’s really no running water and only a handful of the houses have electricity.
This is one of the 3 toilets the whole community shares. Can you imagine what it’s like after heavy rain?
Another thing the community leader said they needed is some sort of recreational area for the children. Basically they need EVERYTHING from food, clothes, books etc. To make a donation you can go to: LOTS Charity Foundation www.lotscharityfoundation.org (You can visit their site to find our more about Dustbin Estate) 08023826171 LOTS Charity Foundation GTBank 0013502376
