N100 Million worth of Food items (Rice, Beans, Garri, Vegetable Oil and Salt), Personal Protective Equipment, Medical Supplies and Essential Hygiene Products for about 22,968 Internally Displaced Persons handed over to Mr. Anthony Jellason, the Secretary to the Taraba State Government.
We were received by His Excellency, Governor Dairus Dickson Ishaku of Taraba State himself and he was so grateful for our Support.
Our #VSFCovid19Intervention in Taraba is timely because as at July 2019, Taraba State had 21700 IDPs in 8 camps only in Jalingo and Ardo Kola so this is a truly important support for them.
Since the Victims Support Fund has no State Office in Taraba as we do in Abuja, Borno, Yobe and Adamawa, we will be partnering with the State Government & Credible Community Based Organisations, the Civil Society and NGOs on the distribution of this Food Items to the IDPs and Vulnerable People within Taraba Communities.
When we start Distribution, you will see me and many Victims Support Fund Volunteers on the Field and we have an excellent data collection system of our beneficiaries. In the coming days, I will move on from sharing Photos of the official handover of the Palliatiaves to our State Partners to showing photos and videos of our actual Distribution along with testimonies from our Beneficiaries so you can see who they are.
Lagos and Ogun States are next.
