As part of her effort towards curtailing the spread COVID-19 among the Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), a fellow of King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz International Centre for Interreligious and Intercultural Dialogue (KAICIID), an Inter-Governmental Organization, Stella Francis, recently visited the IDPs camp in Durumi Area1 to sensitize women and children on the global pandemic COVID 19.
Speaking with Blueprint during the visit she said the sensitization which was done in Hausa language was aim at “educating the IDPs on how to prevent the deadly and highly communicable COVID-19 in their camps”
Stella who donated hygiene packs including hand sanitizers and soaps to the women used the opportunity to call on the public to as much as possible adhere to the instruction from the World Health Organisation (WHO), the Federal Ministry for Health and the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) in other to bend the curve on the spreads of the Coronavirus.
She also encouraged people to reach out to the less privileged around them in this critical time.
On his part, the secretary of the IDP camp, Bala lawal Yusuf, on behalf of the women and children appreciated Stella and made a passionate appeal for more donations especially hand sanitizers and food items to the IDPs by public spirited individuals.No tags for this post.
