EDO DIASPORA IN THE NEWS
Musa’s charity work was reported in the Daily Mirror!
Musa started a foodbank with his own money – they have provided over 2,000 parcels
When Musa Amedu noticed that African families in Greater Manchester couldn’t get African food from food banks, he decided to step in.
“I felt there was a need to carry that part of the community along so they will feel accommodated and included. People can only contribute when you allow them to play a role.”
Musa, 56, started a foodbank named Edo Diaspora with his own money, and to date they have provided over 2,000 food parcels.
Edo Diaspora has since expanded to provide community workshops, helping families with translation issues and holding seminars on important issues such as Sickle Cell disease.
“I discovered that was another problem: the pandemic came and paralysed everything. People’s work was taken away, loneliness crept in, boredom crept in, children weren’t going to school and had nothing to do. So I decided to focus on wellbeing too.”
