#WeStandWithMakurdi – Send Relief Items to Displaced Persons
In Partnership with Project 17 and Executive Initiatives; we are willing to collect relief materials of food and clothing Items for persons displaced by the devastating floods in Makurdi.
We believe you must have heard that more than 110,000 people in 24 communities including Makurdi, Benue state have been displaced by a flood. The Executive Secretary of the State Emergency Management Agency (SEMA), Mr. Boniface Ortese, who announced this said over 2,769 households were also affected. Places affected include Achusa, Idye, Wurukum Market, Genabe, Industrial Layout, Demekpe, Wadata Market, Katungu, behind the Civil Service Commission, Agboughul-Wadata among others in Makurdi, according to this news article posted by The Nation
The real situation is that several people are without shelter, clothing or food and it is hard to keep talking about Sustainability if we are unable to help them in any way.
SustyViber, Ibiyinka Amokeode is leading this project with the team in partnership with Project 17 and Executives Initiatives and we are counting on you to support us.
