IDPs in uncompleted building get relief materials in Jos
As Nigerians face the challenge of coping with the new world order occasioned by the pandemic, Dakas Foundation has donated 30 bags of relief materials to vulnerable citizens in Plateau State. The relief materials were donated to Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) living in Rayfield, widows at Federal Low-cost and Persons With Disabilities (PWDs) in Jos.
While presenting the food items to the IDPs living in an uncompleted building in Rayfield, a partner of the foundation, Beautrice Clement Dakas, said they were moved by the need to share in the plight of individuals with no means of livelihood in this austere times of a global lockdown. The viral news of the IDPs occupying an uncompleted building attracted the foundation when a blogger, Masara Kim, published the story on the plight of the IDPs.
She said: “When the story came up on the internet, we were moved by their living condition. That is why we identified with them to give them hope that God will bring them out of this.”
While Joint Association of Persons Living With Disability (JONAPWD) received the donations on behalf of PWDs in the state, Sister-in-charge, Sis. Patricia Iwunze of Ola Hospital and Zawan Orphanage home in Zawan received for the orphans.
