An interview with the Jos Repertory Theatre
What difference has IPAT’s help made to your group,
family and friends, and the wider community?
The fact that a group of artistes and the general public around the world really look out for others with substantial contributions
and that they have not met them is not an issue. It is just enough that they are artistes.
This has touched me deeply over the years. Our friends are amazed at the consistency of the IPAT support over the years.
This has played a deep role in sustaining the families of the artistes that are being supported.
What does the ongoing help from IPAT mean to you?
As an organisation, those of us who do not enjoy robust and good health get the regular and consistent support
from our peers and mentors means so much to us about the common humanity that we share. Jos, June 2015
What would have happened without IPAT’s support?
The health of the four actors would have taken a turn for the worse.
The support ensures that whether we are working or not, the actors can feed well to enable them to take their regular medication.
The support has also enabled them to engage in self-sustaining trades outside
of acting to enable them further to get more and better care.
The fact that they have remained healthy for the past six years when some of their colleagues
have passed on is testament to the impact of the support on their lives.
