Help the flood victims of Nigeria!

      Charlotte, NC

For decades, multinational companies have made overwhelming fortunes off the oil-rich states of Nigeria, while the vast majority of the regions' citizens live on less than $1 a day. Now, flooding has created a disaster that has displaced more than 600,000 people, destroyed homes, lands, crops, and means of basic subsistence. The flood damage has not, however, interfered with oil production. It is unconscionable that the regions' big oil companies would not provide relief for the victims of their surrounding communities in this time of urgent need and dire poverty. We call on these companies to help provide for transportation, shelter, food, water, medicine, and other basic necessities to allow the people of the Niger Delta and surrounding regions to survive and rebuild. We call on the governors of these regions to make sure all funds reach their constituents, and for total transparency in the collection and distribution of all funds, with full access to information about any contributions and their use made available to the public, to reporters, and to the regions' NGOs working toward relief.

      The corruption and disparity in wealth is so great in Nigeria that it's obvious multinationals exploiting resources should face their ethical responsability and help those in need in the areas they are working in.

      All people deserve a chance to live and prosper in this world. The riches should not be harvested and sequestered to just a few corporations.

      These companies have made trillions of monies from this environment and destroying the Niger Delta environment in the process. If Dangote can donate to assist the flood victims then these companies must assist the flood affected people of the Niger Delta their primary place of business in Nigeria
