NEMA Distributes Delivery Kits To 400 Displaced Persons


By Samuel Malik

The National Emergency Management Agency, NEMA, has selected about 410 pregnant internally displaced persons in Maiduguri, Borno state capital, to be given delivery kits that would last them up to six months after they put to bed.



    NEMA’s North east coordinator, Mohammed Kanar, disclosed this when he spoke to our correspondent on the condition of displaced persons in the region.

    “The kits will contain mattresses, baby shower, blankets, mosquito nets, and everything a nursing mother needs,” Kanar said, adding that the agency was poised to distribute mosquito nets to the camps to help prevent cases of malaria, especially as rainfall increases.

    The NEMA chief also said diabetic IDPs would now have their meals specially prepared since they cannot eat most of the general food prepared in the camps.

    “When I heard of their problem, I decided to take over their feeding because they are not many; usually you find 100 here, 30 here and 30 there, so I told my staff that this time around food should be given directly to the kitchen to be cooked for them,” he explained.
