IDRIS AHMED, LOKOJA.
An Abuja based Humanitarians Organisations, Olayinka Braimoh Initiative, has donated relief materials and cash worth millions of naira to flood victims in Kogi state.
Founder of the Organisation, Mr Olayinka Braimoh, who personally led the delegation to Kogi state on Friday, expressed shock over the devastating impact of the flood on the victims and their properties.
The Philanthropist and his team, on arrival payed homage to traditional rulers at their various palaces and commiserated with them and their subjects over the great loses they uncured following the flooding.
Mr Braimoh visited the Internally Displaced Persons (IDP) camps at Koton-karfe in Kogi local government area, Adankolo,, Galilee in Lokoja local government area and Gadumo in Ajaokuta local government area, where victims from displaced communities received palliatives.
While handing over the materials and cash to the community leaders, Mr Braimoh who consoled them, admonished them to keep hope alive as the Al mighty God is always with them.
He said the visit was to identify with the victims and support them in a little way to cushion the effects of the tragedy and devastation of their properties by the flood.
Addressing victims at the Galilee IDP camp hosting victims from seven communities, Olayinka Braimoh, said that Government can’t do everything and that was the reason for the visit to see them and contribute his own little.
He appealed to Federal State and governments and Corporate organisations as well as individuals to show kindness and come to the support of the flood victims.
Earlier, the Community Leaders, Women and Youths Leaders, in their welcome addresses lamented the harsh condition they found themselves and urged kindhearted individuals, Government and Organisations to come to their aid
