Message from our Director

Msgr. Prof. Dr. Obiora Ike

The worsening insecurity in Nigeria coupled with the high rate of unemployment and the abuse of fundamental human rights among other ills have further driven families into destitution with parents unable to provide for their families not to talk about giving their children a proper education.

CIDJAP over the years has continued to support victims of terrorist attacks, offering small business grants to indigent households, offering free legal aid to those unjustly imprisoned, etc.

I believe that with your support, CIDJAP will continue her work of impacting the lives of thousands of people here in Nigeria.
