Happy New Years!

I am thrilled to announce THE JOYOUS LIVING AWARDS’ Non-Profit of 2019…

Geanco Foundation.

It was quite an honor this past year to feature GEANCO and their amazing work in Nigeria as part of my SPOTLIGHT series.

Some Highlights from our series on GEANCO:

  • Geanco Foundation was established in 2005 by Dr. Godwin Onyema and his family.
  • A million children a year die in Nigeria.
  • One Nigerian woman dies in childbirth every 10 minutes.
  • Over 200 needy Nigerians have received hip and knee replacements and bone fracture repairs through our medical missions.
  • Since 2018, they now perform minimally-invasive gallbladder, hernia and appendix surgeries on poor patients, train local surgeons, and donate specialized equipment and instruments.
  • GEANCO covers the cost of anemia treatment and prenatal care for 300 vulnerable pregnant women each month.

and so much more! That doesn’t even cover the amazing ways GEANCO partners with celebrities such as Benedict Cumberbatch and David Oyelowo.

The Joyous Living has made a donation to help further the great work GEANCO is doing in Nigeria and we would count it a great honor if you would join us in spreading the good news, covering them in prayers and assisting with any financial gifts you can afford.
