BattaBox helps a Poor Family celebrate Christmas in Nigeria

While many people enjoy the festive Christmas season, others are finding it hard to even feed themselves. So this season, BattaBox wanted to profile a poor family and their daily struggles to survive.

“Some terrible circumstances carried me to this place at Makoko, but I never chose to live in a place like this,” said Mr Lawal. “We can only afford to eat once a day, my wife washes clothes for others to help the family and so we can eat.”

Mr Lawal packs sawdust at the sawmillto earn a living, earning sometimes up to N1000 a day – almost $3.

In the run up to Christmas, BattaBox went to buy some chickens for the family.

“We don’t want to just come here and profile you, we do really care, so we brought you these extras for your christmas meal,” says Odunayo, our BattaBox Presenter.
