COLUMBUS (WCMH) — The Wedgewood Village apartments have undergone a huge transformation from a community known for its violence to a community that places safety and unity first.
My Project USA held an Eid party to bring the community together.
“We’re not doing this for ourselves, we’re doing this to help out this community, to help out the kids,” said 15-year-old Abdulk Adir, who works with My Project USA.
Kids who live in the Wedgewood Village apartments stepped up to make a difference in place they live.
“It makes me happy to be able to help out my community,” said Abdi Bakari.
It was a place that has been known for it’s violence.
“Three years ago, you wouldn’t want to move there,” said Adir.
