TOWARDS eradicating malnutrition among the Internally Displaced Persons, IDPs, in Nigeria, Promasidor Nigeria Limited, donated products to Empower 54 Project, that is at the forefront of eradicating malnutrition in the country.
The Founder/President, Empower 54, Princess Modupe Ozolua, said the products were greatly appreciated as malnutrition is a major concern among IDPs, refugees and the underprivileged across Africa.
Ozolua commended Promasidor Nigeria Limited for supporting Empower 54 in such an immeasurable manner, assuring that the products, which contain vital nutrients would be judiciously utilised.
Empower 54 is a US non-profit organisation providing humanitarian assistance since 2003 through health, education, empowerment, and IDP/refugee programmes to underprivileged Africans.
The organisation evacuated the severely malnourished IDP children from Bama to Maiduguri for treatment two years ago, but realised more has to be done to save children suffering from severe acute malnutrition.
Ozolua said it was that experience that prompted Empower 54 to lead the move towards creating strategic measures to eradicate the deadly epidemic.
His Imperial Majesty, the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi, is Empower 54’s global goodwill ambassador for its campaign to eradicate malnutrition in Africa, and its also supported by the Australian Government, IMF and other international partners.
