Global used clothes drive for Boko Haram victims

28 July 2015, 13:59 Peregrino Brimah

We are coordinating a global used clothes drive for the displaced millions of victims of Boko Haram terror in Nigeria. No less than 2 million people have been displaced since 2009. According to the United Nations, 60,000 children will be born in displaced camps across Nigeria. Over half of the displaced victims are children, many orphaned, many injured in one form or the other. They ran with only the clothes on their backs. They don’t have a means of livelihood. They are too many for the government to cater to.

ENDS, a registered charity organization is coordinating a global clothes drive. We will be collecting clothes in US, UK, Nigeria and wherever else as we get volunteers and donors. We will coordinate with IDPs Support Group and other partners.

With your generosity we will be making container loads to Nigeria. Already, merely initiating, the donations have started coming from friends and family.
