Four hundred and fifty eight families affected by fire disaster at Muna El-Badawi IDP camp in Borno state have been provided with relief items to ease their hardship.
The fire outbreak recently destroyed the entire El-Badawi camp located in Jere Local government, leaving the already displaced people in dire need of assistance.
Receiving the items donated by Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation NNPC and other Multinational oil companies, Director General Borno state Emergency Management Agency Hajiya Yabawa Kolo thanked the organisations for the support.
Represented by Special Adviser to the Governor on Emergency Affairs Alhaji Gadau Monguno, the DG observed the intervention is coming at a time when government is trying to closed down all camps in Maiduguri by the end of the year.
She called on donor agencies and Non-governmental organisation to key into Borno state government plan of resettling IDPs to their communities.
One of the implementing partners, Managing Director Dan Garu Global Resources, Alhaji Abdullahi Zubairu said the support is part of the company’s corporate social responsibility.
Two of the beneficiaries Dunoma Galtai and Kaka Lawan Grema appreciated NNPC and other partners for coming to thier aid at critical time of need.
Each household will receive bags of rice, beans and millet, vegetable and palm oil, condiments, blanket and mosquito net.
