Generous donors have contributed $9,447 in the seven days since Project Not Alone announced its 2024 fund drive on May 3. That surpassed the goal of $8,122. The total includes several hefty donations from generous individuals and the previously announced grant of £2,450 (about $3,000) from the Attitude Magazine Foundation. As planned, the money will pay 10 prisoners’ fines and provide lawyers (working pro bono) for the three detainees who are being held pending a trial. It will also pay for hygiene supplies and supplementary food for the prisoners in Cameroon and Nigeria during the months while they await release from their dirty prison cells, typically surviving on one filthy, poorly cooked meal per day.
