By Ndahi Marama

Maiduguri—The Borno State chapter of Women in Da’awah, yesterday, presented relief materials to the Internally Displaced Persons, IDPs, taking refuge at the Bakassi Housing Estate camp along Biu Road in Maiduguri metropolis.

Coordinator of the group, Malama Aisha Aisami said they were at the camp to sympathise with the IDPs, especially women who lost their husbands during the insurgency at this trying moment, urging them to take solace in Allah.

She said the items they brought were donated by the One Ummah, a sister organisation based in Abuja, to alleviate their sufferings.

Former state Amirah of FOMWN, Malama Fati Alhassan, who also spoke on the occasion, urged the displaced women to be God fearing in all their dealings and have faith in Allah in whatever situation they found themselves, as what happened to them had already been decreed by Allah.

The items donated included 30 bags of rice, 19 cartons of spaghetti, two cartons of bournvita and sachets of peak milk and sugar. Others included 50 pieces of plastic mats and four cartons of soap.
