Kaduna: Internally Displaced children solicit support

Internally displaced children camping at Ungwan zawu, Gonin-gora, Chikun local government area of Kaduna State have cried out as they solicit for support in form of instructional and educational materials, pending when their parents will relocate to their ancestral homes.

At the last official count, Ungwan zawu IDP camp had 278 men, 342 women and 248 children, totalling 868 persons across age and gender.

According to the victims, in 2019, they found a temporary place at the extreme part of Gonin-gora, a community located along Kaduna-Abuja highway where they have been surviving at the mercies of non governmental and religious organisations, as well as spirited individuals.

The occupants of the camp mainly children, nursing mothers, pregnant women and aged said they have little or nothing to eat, cannot access basic medical needs or a befitting place to lay their heads.

A teacher, who volunteered to tutor the children at the camp, Emmanuel Stephen Yari is appealling to citizens to support the children with learning materials for studies.

The instructional materials he listed include whiteboards, board markers, benches, chairs, tables for staff, uniforms, stockings and sandals.

Others are textbooks, writing materials, games wear, Bibles and children story books.

“We are soliciting for these items to enable us teach the ‘now common’ but ‘not common’ in later days to come children so they will one day be like other children.

We want you all to help us drive this vision to reality.

“We are not asking for money but any of these items listed above will assist us in bringing up these children to become responsible citizens,“ Yari appealled.
