Prof. Dakas CJ Dakas Foundation on Sunday donated bags of maize, beans, sugar, garri to Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs), orphans, widows and persons living with disabilities in Jos.
Mrs Beatrice Dakas, who presented the food items to the IDPs living in an uncompleted building in Rayfield, said that the gesture was to alleviate the plight of the beneficiaries.
“The news on social media of the IDPs occupying an uncompleted building attracted the foundation’s attention to the unbearable conditions the people were living in.
“The place the people are living in, to say the least, is not habitable.
“And that is why we are here to identify with them and give them some hope that God will bring them out of the situation. We do hope that other spirited individuals will follow the same path,” she said.
Mr Chung Yakubu, who thanked the foundation on behalf of the IDPs appealed to other spirited individuals to emulate the foundation in supporting the needy.
Dakas, who also visited Our Lady of Apostle Orphanage, Zawan, commended the management for taking good care of the children in the way of the Lord.
She said apart from the donated items, the foundation would continue to pray for the orphanage.
Rev. Sister Patricia Iwunze, in charge of the orphanage, thanked the foundation for the donation and show of love.
Mr. Seth Attah, Leader of Joint Association of Persons Living With Disabilities (JONAPWD), received the donations on behalf of persons living with disabilities in the state.
