The 4th of October, 2016, was an important day in the annals of history of under aged children in about 9 IDPS camp across the capital city of Maiduguri, following the visit by Senator (Mrs.) Oluremi Tinubu to the state to assess in our various camps, the relative inadequacy of balanced diet among the children, particularly those who fall between the ages of 0-5 and probably even within the ages of 7 were reassessed.
This has resulted in response to the situation through her magnanimous mannerism, Her Excellency, Hajiya Nana Kashim Shettima, provided nutritional foods supplement, to complement the efforts of the state state government.
Over 120 bags of beans, 10 bags of crayfish, 20 Carton of tomatoes, 40 Carton of Maggi cube, 12 bags of salt, 20 trucks of fire woods and a feeding programme for these age groups was lunched by Her Excellency the wife of the Executive Governor of Borno State and CEO SWOT Foundation.
The feeding programme is expected to last some time so that the protein requirements of the children in the IDPS camps will be mates through the process. This will in no small measure rise the growth and development of these children, so that they can favourably compete with their mates within cosmos.
The issue of malnituritioment among the children in the IDPs Camps is no longer a story as we all know, that government along cannot meet up with the requirements of these exponential number of children in our various camp.
The effort of the international community, the NGO’S, and local Civil Society Organizations within the state, has also played a tremendous role in complementing the effort of the current administration in handling the challenges that are associated with the humanitarian crises faced by the state occasioned by the sordid act of mayhem unlished on us by the lunatics called Boko Haram.
