Internally Displaced Persons from Gwoza and Bama villages in Maiduguri seeking refuge at Durumi center of the IDP camps in Abuja are among the beneficiaries of the relief materials donated by the Institute of Public Relations, (NIPR) Abuja Chapter.
Among the relief materials are Bags of rice, Cartons of noodles, drinks, books and writing materials for the kids, tissue papers and others.
The secretary of the Camp Bala Yusuf who received the items expressed gratitude for the gesture and prayed for the longevity and success of the institute.
Bala who described the gesture as timely said although the camp periodically gets similar gestures, this stands out because it came on the day to mark Valentine celebrations.
While presenting the relief materials, President of the group Dr Tayo Haastrup told the gathering that it is part of the Institute’s corporate social responsibility to provide succor to the less privileged and what better way than to celebrate Valentine with them.
Dr Haastrup who noted that the burden of taking care of IDP should not be left alone to government, appealed to individuals, groups and corporate bodies to always remember the IDPs nationwide.
He also urged Nigerians to be their brother’s keeper by living in peace and harmony with one another.
“I want to appeal to you to have the spirit of love and forgive the nation. Don’t feel cheated and aggressive by the condition you find yourself in, with persistent prayer this hardship will come to pass” he prayed.
