In providing palliative support for the Internally Displaced Persons (IDP) during the ongoing lockdown order in Abuja, 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 the Federal Capital Territory.

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.

The foundation is making the donation a week after the ex-president, who is the Chairman of the Foundation, Dr. Jonathan called on Nigerians to show solidarity and take actions in order to win the war against COVID-19.

Overseeing the distribution of the relief materials, the Executive Director of the Foundation, Ms. Ann Iyonu, said the foundation is was keen to cushion the effect the global pandemic would have on IDPs.

She also described the move to assist vulnerable groups in the FCT to help them cope with challenges of COVID-19 as a necessary one.

“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.
