Osun State Governor Extends Lockdown Order By Another 14 Days, To Begin On Friday 17th April, 2020.


I greet everyone across the nations of earth, especially those that are already under the effects of the alarming COVID-19 pandemic virus.

To this effect, integrated health as a thematic area has been under a devastating condition due to the outbreak of COVID-19 across the world and thus requires an urgent attention.

COVID-19 is a deadly virus invading and constituting devastating effects not just in health but virtually all other sectors across the globe. The 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19) is an ongoing viral disease caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). The outbreak was first identified in Wuhan, Hubei, China, in December 2019, and was recognized as a pandemic by the World Health Organization (WHO) on 11 March 2020. As of 24 March, more than 396,000 cases of COVID-19 have been reported in more than 190 countries and territories, resulting in more than 17,200 deaths. The virus is typically spreading from one person to another via respiratory droplets produced during coughing or sneezing. It primarily spreads when people are in close contact but may also spread when one touches a contaminated surface and then one's face. It is most contagious when people are symptomatic, although spread may be possible before symptoms appear. The time between exposure and symptom onset is typically around five days, but may range from two to fourteen days. Common symptoms include fever, cough, and shortness of breath. Complications may include pneumonia and acute respiratory distress syndrome.

Nigeria has recorded a total of 46 cases of COVID-19 pandemic virus as of 25 March 2020, while more cases are still undergoing test to determine whether positive or negative. The major issue here is that most of those that tested positive already had contact with several others before the COVID-19 symptoms became obvious in them, and by virtue of this Nigeria may presently have many more cases unreported or not yet confirmed. This is a major public health problem and its outbreak has drastically affected every other sector including economy as the whole country is undergoing restricted movement as a result of total lockdown of public gatherings. Nigeria is a country with over 180 million people across the 36 states. Respectively, millions of people are found in one location or the other and cases are being discovered day by day. It is therefore imperative to ensure safety of these people.

As an organization, we have been greatly involved in massive sensitization and distribution of washing hand basin, soap and hand sanitizer to schools, markets and public places so as to prevent the widespread of the pandemic virus in all our offices across the nation.

In a bid to control the widespread of this pandemic virus to a minimal end, Hope for Family Development Initiative is calling on national, international and private bodies for support and donations in curbing the widespread of the virus. HFDI appeals to you for provision of hand sanitizer, nose mask, and other relieve materials to be distributed across all nooks and cranny of the 36 states in Nigeria.

Thanks for your anticipated support.

Yours Faithfully,

Aremu Stephen
Executive Director


Hope for Family Development Initiative is a non-governmental, not-for-profit organization established in 2007 as a movement to improve the lives of marginalized and vulnerable groups.

To this effect, integrated health as a thematic area has been under a devastating condition due to the outbreak of COVID-19 across the world and thus requires an urgent attention.

It is evident beyond doubt that since the wake of COVID_19, all sectors across nations have been mitigated sequel to quite a number of confirmed cases and death tolls. COVID-19 has led to a total lockdown in almost all the affected nations, including Nigeria.

Nigeria is a country with about 200 million people, and presently the country is under a total lockdown. Fortunately we are given the chance to run skeletal operations around the nation. This is why we have been able to respond to the call of masses, especially those who are incapacitated due to the lockdown. Many of them depend solely on daily income with which they feed themselves and others around them. As a result of the lockdown, many of these people are hopeless corresponding to the issue of the woman-rescued-after-jumping-into-osun-river-in-suicide-attempt, single-mother-of-three-jumps-into-osun-river-after-lockdown-announcement.

As a way of mandating the lockdown the contain spread of the virus, the Osun state government gave an emergency rule that whoever violates stay at home order, goes to jail as preventive regulations.

In response to hunger effect of the COVID-19 lockdown, we understand it is to contain the widespread of the disease which is very imperative. It is equally important to note that a strong immunity is mostly required at this time and this can only be possible when good meal is made available for children, young and vulnerable adults. In light of this, HFDI therefore calls out for support of the project; CHARITY (Donation) FOR IMMUNITY.


This is a project that is aimed at making food and relief materials available to the masses. It emphasizes the importance of immunity in fighting against covid-19. It entails the need to feed the populace with diets that help to build the leucocytes against pathogens. HFDI thus implores dignitaries, public icons, business moguls, politicians, philanthropists, organizations, companies, and state government to support the project with funds and/or relief items that the masses may survive especially during the lockdown.


Your donation for the emergency relief can make a good difference in time of needs like now.

Your donation goes to the communities to provide children, young persons and vulnerable adults with food items, hygiene kits, and lots more.
On behalf of our partners, and the target beneficiaries across the nation, thank you for your support.
