About us


We, that is Jude and Sabine. Jude was born in Uromi and has been living and working in Augsburg in the logistics industry for many years. Sabine is a project manager in an architectural office, mother of 3 and Jude's partner. Both live in a shared apartment in Friedberg (Germany).

Jude had often told Sabine about the conditions in Uromi, but he could not begin to convey the reality.

During a joint trip in 2020 to Jude's birthplace, Sabine was directly confronted with the suffering that prevails in Uromi.


Jude and Sabine

The indescribable poverty and the conditions under which the inhabitants struggle every day for bare survival are shocking for European minds and hard to process.

The impressions of this trip did not let Sabine go and so the two decided to start a relief action to improve the lives of the most needy people in Uromi. The idea of "Hands together for Uromi" was born and was put into action in September 2021 with the registration as a non-profit association VR 203325 in the register of associations in Augsburg.





The city, with a population of about 85,ooo, is located northeast of Benin City in the interior of Nigeria in Edo State and consists of 3 wards.

Map of Uromi

Many inhabitants of Uromi live below the poverty line and have to get by on less than US$1.5 a day. Work is scarce here and only a few have regular jobs. Most people eke out a living by selling homegrown food or digging through the local garbage dump. The average age in Uromi is just 20.4 years. Only very few reach the age of 50. Many families are not able to feed their children from the meager income and so the older children usually end up on the street, where they are left to their own fate. Without a roof over their heads and parental care, children as young as 6 years old live in degrading conditions and have to eke out a living every day. We want to help here with a care program.


Even toddlers are left to their own devices





Jude is very well connected locally, because his mother and the rest of the family still live there on the outskirts of the city. This allows us to personally ensure that the donations reach exactly those who need the help most urgently. Our biggest focus is on the street children of Uromi. With a one-stop store under the leadership of Mama Doris, we have begun to distribute daily food rations to street children and needy families. In addition, our foundation ensures that emergency medical care is possible and that the sick can be helped.
