The Every Nigerian Do Something (ENDS) philanthropic organization last week distributed thousands of pieces of clothes to IDPs in camps in Borno.
Along with NEMA officials and working with United Nations foundations, ENDS made its second successful delivery of thousands of clothing items so far gathered and being gathered across the world in the #IDPClothesDrive.
The distribution, headed by Ali Usman, took place at NYSC IDP camp in Borno, and NEMA officials and other volunteers helped in giving anxious displaced persons various items of clothing, accessories and other materials.
Although the drive is still ongoing and various sponsors have been given the sincerest messages of thanks, the ENDS Drive global coordinator, Baba Aliko, has pleaded with the public for sweaters and blankets at this time.
The cold season is upon them in Borno and Aliko says that along with other stuff, adults and children especially need to be kept warm, more so in the flimsy tents in which they reside.
At the current time, over 2 000 pieces of baby items have been collected but continued support is needed.
Please contact Baba Aliko +234-80123085907; Mohammed Keana +234-8060029996 and others listed on ENDS #IDPClothesDrive for donation support.
A special vote of thanks goes out to ENDS members and friends, Freedom Fm Kano, PEDS (Partnership in Entrepreneurship Development Services) Gombe, De Choice cleaners Festac link bridge rd, Amuwo Adofin, Lagos and other organisations and individuals.
