Helping Flood Victims

In Nigeria right now, an estimated 1 million victims of the worst floods in 52 years are searching for hope. Hundreds of thousands have lost their homes, drinking

water is filthy and contaminated, and food is scarce. One look at the devastating images of men and women walking through brown water up to their chests, watching TV footages of children without shelter, is not only pathetic but scary also. 

It is time we come out to show how much we care, Initiative for Development, Empowerment and Absolute Stability, IDEAS an NGO founded by me is ready to partner with all other agencies to provide relief materials and help in rehabilitating displaced men, women and children. 

According to experts forecast, the rising water will continue, which means, more mass displacement, more mass deaths, and mass hunger. 

Let us all come out and lend a helping hand to the needy at this time. 

I dedicate this month’s column to the displaced and flood victim across the country. 

Join me next month, when I roll out the maiden edition of my column in PSN. 

Take care 

Jeniffer Eliogu
