INTERNATIONAL Islamic
Relief Organisation from the
Kingdom of Saudi Arabia
has donated N36millin
worth relief materials to
four Internally Displaced
Persons, IDPs, camps and
and two orphanage schools
in Maiduguri.
While flagging off the
distribution at the NYSC
IDP camp in Maiduguri
yesterday, the acting
country director of the
organisation, Sheik Adil
Hussein Abdallah said
3,000 IDPs would get
blankets while 4,500 would
get food baskets containing
cooking oil, spaghetti and
rice.
“1,200 persons will be
given blankets while
500 persons will benefit
from food baskets in the
NYSC camps. The gesture
will also be extended
to Dalori, Bakasi and
Maimusari camps across
the metropolis, in addition
to 600 orphans from Future
Prowess Orphanage School
that will benefit from our
scholarship scheme.”
Shiek Abdullah said the
items should be distributed
to the victims of Boko Haram
insurgency irrespective of
their religious and ethnic
affiliations, stressing that
the exercise would be a
continuous one.
He said the organisation
procured the items at the
cost of 360,000 Riyals,
which is equivalent to N36
million, and called on the
beneficiaries to make good
use of the items, as the
organisation would in the
next three days continue
with the exercise.
Earlier, the Shehu of
Borno, Alhaji Abubakar
Ibn Garbai El-Kanemi,
who was represented
by the district head of
Ngetra, Alhaji Abba Anas,
thanked the organisation
for coming to the aid of
the victims of Boko Haram
insurgency and urged them
to extend the gesture to the
local government areas,
especially the most affected
ones, Bama and Gwoza.
