OJODU BERGER, September 16, 2017 – McDera Kitchen, a bespoke Nigerian soup/stew seller reaches out to people in the slums of Lagos, Nigeria as charity and humanitarian service.

In a recent outreach carried out by McDera at the slum behind River Valley Estate in Ojodu Berger, the program catered for 200 people.

Corruption-Free Press had a brief interview with the MD/CEO of McDera Kitchen after the event.

Q: How did all these began?

MD/CEO McDera Kitchen, Mrs Alice Uba

A: McDera Street outreach is a non for profit organization that was birthed out of the desire to reach out in love to the less fortunate in the slum through the provision of healthy meals. We believe that every individual irrespective of religion, race, size, age, tribe, has the right to adequate food.

Q: What is the Vision and Mission of this outreach?

A: Our mission: is simply to feed people on the street regardless of their circumstances.
Our vision: is that we envision a society where no one is denied the access to eating sufficient healthy meal.

Q: How do you plan to carry this vision to fulfillment? As in how do you go about the funding?

A: Currently the outreach is solely supported by the mother company called McDera Kitchen. Though we are at the verge of registering the outreach as an NGO and hopefully we believe that we can approach companies for sponsorship once the registration process is concluded.

Q: Is rare seeing this kind of outreach taking place in our society, how do you manage the staffs or volunteers?

A: Well we have no paid staff for now. But it may interest you to no that we have people who have like minds and are willing to go all the to see that they contribute their quota. And so we also always have people who send us text messages that they are willing to give their time.

Q: How often do you carry out such outreaches?

A: Quarterly, We hope to do it monthly if we have access to funds.

Q: How can people connect with McDera in terms of partnership, sponsorship or volunteering? 

A: They can contact us via our social media handle www.instagram.com/mcderakitchen or www.facebook.com/mcderakitchen, Whatsapp: 07085159644.

“Hunger is no respecter of status, whether rich or poor both will always feel hungry but the difference is that the poor cannot afford a meal in order to quench the hunger. We find these people on the street on daily basis. According to mother Teresa “if you can’t feed 100 people, feed one person” it’s a privilege to be a vessel. Let’s reach out” says Mrs Alice Uba.
