Our Partners

Uk Operations

The mission of the Lydia Wilson Foundation (CIC) organisation in the United Kingdom is to touch the vulnerable members of the society here in Scotland, especially in Aberdeen, UK. Particular focus is on the aged, widow(er)s, refuges and orphans. We operate predominantly in Scotland in the United Kingdom and Nigeria, though we reach out to other countries where there is great need.

Nigeria Operations

Lydia Wilson Foundation has been doing a number of relief works since 2009. There are many locations both within major West African cities, as well as much more rural villages where people go to bed hungry, without any hope for relief. We estimate that $1 USD can effectively feed one child for at least one full day. In our “Every One Dollar” campaign, we aim to use your dollars to purchase foodstuff at local wholesale markets in order to insure premium quality as well as stimulate the local economy.
