“One of the unfortunate things about hunger is that, it is no respecter of persons. Irrespective of one’s position when one is hungry, he or she has to feed. And, those who may not have such means becomes vulnerable. That is why Richlife Africa is trying to bridge the hunger gap in Nigeria so that the nation has a crime free or reduced society,” says Mr. Bernard.
