The Goodluck Jonathan Foundation has distributed food and WASH (Water, Hygiene and Sanitation) materials worth millions of naira to different internally displaced persons ( IDP) camps in Abuja to help them cope with the consequences of COVID-19 pandemic.

The Executive Director of the Foundation, Mrs. Ann Iyonu, who distributed the materials round various  IDP camps in the FCT on Wednesday, said  as an  organisation  with a  vision of promoting inclusive government in Africa, it became necessary for them assist  vulnerable groups in the FCT to help them cope with challenges of COVID-19.

According to her: “the consequences of COVID- 19 include human insecurity;  threats to peace  and livelihood. As advocates of peace,  inclusive government, sustainable development and social justice we are stakeholders in nation building.

“Our visit to these camps is a token of our commitment to the values we preach. We are here to show solidarity to these vulnerable groups. There is no better time to demonstrate what we advocate  than  now when the world is in a crisis.”

Items distributed include: bags of rice, cartons of groundnut oil,  sanitary towels, hand sanitizers, bathing soap and other relief items.

The Goodluck Jonathan Foundation is a non – governmental organisation founded in 2015  by Nigeria’s former President Dr. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan to promote peace, inclusive government and  justice in Africa.

You will recall that last week , Chairman of the Foundation, Dr.  Jonathan called on  Nigerians to show solidarity and take actions in order to win the war against COVID-19.
