On how they could raise items that worth such a huge amount, Mr Bello explained: “The N5 million was raised from voluntary donations my members in the FCT.“That is what defines us as a community of people providing financial help to each other on the principle of reciprocity and benevolence.
“In MMM there are no lenders and no debtors. One participant asks for help, another one helps.’”
“They are our brothers and sisters who have left the comfort of their homes and are now struggling for survival here.
“No matter how little, let us always extend a hand of help to them to complement what government and other donors are doing.”
