Founder, Belinda Babila Foundation, Dr. Belinda Babila said: “It was a very touching experience for us. Speaking to the refugees one-one-one was quite touching. We visited the Cameroonian refugees at the Adagom Settlement in Ogoja LGA, Cross Rivers State, and we had a three-day  empowerment outreach between December 13  and 16.

“We are planning self-sustenance empowerment programmes for the over 8,000 refugees. I am most grateful to all the donors and partners who contributed towards the just concluded refugees outreach campaign at Adagom Settlement in Ogoja, Nigeria. However, funding is one of our major challenges.
