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 batch successful delivery of thousands of clothing items so far gathered and being gathered across the nation and 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.
While the the global used clothes, bedding materials, baby and lady items, school bags, general bags and as we put it, “all the good stuff you do not need,” is still ongoing and while thanking Nigerians for their extreme generosity with so many donors, some who donate as good as new and new items yet ask not to have their names mentioned, ENDS Drive global coordinator, Mr Baba Aliko is asking for your sweaters and blankets at this time.
The cold season is upon them in Borno and global Drive coordinator, Baba Aliko says that along with other stuff, adults and children especially need to be kept warm, more so in the flimsy tents they reside. We have over 2000 pieces of baby items, but remember, as many as 60,000 babies were born in IDP camps this year alone. Add that to all the children, the numbers are staggering. We need your continued support.
While we solicit your assistance with transporting truck loads we have in Nigeria’s south, Lagos and other states.
Please contact Baba Aliko +234-80123085907; Mohammed Keana +234-8060029996 and others listed on ENDS #IDPClothesDrive for donation support.
We thank an endless list of extraordinary ENDS members and friends, Freedom Fm Kano, PEDS (Partnership in Entrepreneurship Development Services) Gombe and other organisations too many to mention and Nigerians and friends for answering a call of a people in need and a call of God.
