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.

Since inception, we have achieved the following in the UK:

  1. Provide support to the local food bank in Westhill, Aberdeen.
  2. Provided packaged groceries for struggling widows within the communities.

  7. As part of our mental health programme, we collect used and unwanted football kits from our partners; Westdyke FC and Mickleover FC as donations, and we pay for shipments to Nigeria to support vulnerable children. These are used by kids in the slums to hold football tournaments which we sponsor annually.
