"It’s our mandate to support and work in various areas that address the problems of most vulnerable people in the society: women, girls, youths and physically challenged."

"Government alone cannot do it all," she said.

She said the IDPs were in need of support to overcome the psychological trauma they experienced during the insurgency attacks.

"They lost their loved ones and property to various attacks on their communities and need support to start new and productive lives."
