‘MMM-Nigeria’, a community of mutual financial aid and donations, hass donated relief materials worth N5 million to two Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) camps in the Federal Capital Territory.
The gesture which was part of the community’s humanitarian week tagged ‘MMM cares’ to mark its one year anniversary, visited the Gwoza and Bama IDP Camp located in Durumi area and the New Kuchingoro IDP camp with relief materials such as bags of rice, beans, garri, as well as cartoons of beverages and noodles.
The group also donated clothing, drugs, and educational materials for the pupils among them. Mr Seyi Bello, a Guilder in the ‘MMM Community’ said the donation was motivated by the desire of the group to affect the society positively, especially the less-privileged. “We are marking our first year anniversary and we have decided to come and celebrate it with our brothers, mothers and children in the camp.
“As a community, we do not only provide help to our members, we also extend that to the larger society as part of our social responsibility. “In these times of economic challenges, the IDPs are the ones that need help and support more than any other person; that is why we visited them today,” he said.”
Bello further appealed to individuals, groups and corporate bodies to always remember the IDPs across Nigeria, since government alone would not be able to provide for them adequately. “They are our brothers and sisters who have left the comfort of their homes and are now struggling for survival here. “No matter how little, let us always extend a hand of help to them to complement what government and other donors are doing, “he said.
