FCWAMCO partners Aisha Buhari’s campaign to provide nutrition for IDPs
FrieslandCampina WAMCO Nigeria has presented 5000 cartons of Peak Milk to children in camps for Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) through the ‘Get Involved’ campaign of Nigeria’s First Lady, Mrs. Aisha Buhari.
Corporate Affairs Director, FrieslandCampina WAMCO, Ore Famurewa, who made the presentation explained that it was aimed at improving the nutritional status of vulnerable children living in IDP camps in northeast Nigeria.
“In a recent report by UNICEF, an estimated 400,000 children under age five will suffer from severe acute malnutrition across Northeast Nigeria this year alone. Our contribution is, therefore, aimed at scaling up and reaching all children in dire need of good nutrition” he said.
The donation made through Mrs. Buhari’s ‘Get Involved’ campaign comes barely a year after the company made a contribution of 20,000 cartons of milk – worth over N100 million – to support nutrition intervention for IDPs in Adamawa State.
Famurewa said, “FrieslandCampina WAMCO lauds the efforts of the wife of the president, Mrs. Aisha Buhari, in the advocacy for health and nutrition for women, children and vulnerable persons in Nigeria.
