‘MMM-Nigeria’, a community of mutual financial aid and donations, donated aid materials valued at N5 million to two IDP camps in the Federal Capital Territory on Saturday. The Nigeria News Agency (NAN) reports that the gesture was part of the community’s humanitarian week tagged ‘MMM Worries’ to commemorate its one-year anniversary. IDP camp of Gwoza and Bama, located in the Durumi area and the new displaced camp in Kuchingoro, were the two beneficiaries of the relief materials. Bags of rice, beans, garri, as well as caricatures of drinks and noodles, were some of the items donated by the group.
The group also donated clothing, drugs and educational materials to students among them. Mr. Seyi Bello, a florin in the MMM Community, said the donation was motivated by the group’s desire to positively affect society, especially the less privileged. “We are celebrating our first anniversary and we have decided to come celebrate it with our brothers and sisters and children in the camp.” As a community, we not only provide help to our members, but also extend it to society as a whole Social. “In these times of economic challenges, the internally displaced are those who need more help and support than anyone else, so we visit them today,” he said. Bello explained that in addition to providing aid and donations to its members, humanitarian service was an emblematic program of the group. He said that relief items were purchased by donations from volunteer members in their quest to positively touch lives. He said: “The N5 million were obtained from voluntary donations from my members in the FCT.” That is what defines us as a community of people who help us mutually with the principle of reciprocity and benevolence.
“In MMM there are no lenders or debtors. One participant asks for help, another helps.” Bello appealed to individuals, groups and corporations to always remember internally displaced persons through Nigeria, since the government alone would not be able to provide them adequately. “It is our brothers and sisters who have left the comfort of their homes and are now struggling to survive here.” No matter how little, we will extend a helping hand to complement what the government and other donors are doing, “he urged. Mr. Enoch Yohanna, Secretary General of the New Kuchingoro Internally Displaced Persons Camp, who received the articles, expressed his gratitude for the gesture that he described as “timely.” “The Christmas season is very close; We thank MMM-Nigeria for bringing these items to us. “We hope to share them successfully with each other so that everyone is happy and have a happy Christmas celebration,” he said. NAN reports that the visit to IDP camps was preceded by two-hour environmental clean-up by members of the group on the Nyanya / Mararaba route, a suburb of the FCT. The members of the group went out in their number to clean the garbage of drains and streets of the zone.
