Abuja IDP Camp Outreach
In the wake of the Boko Haram crisis that led to the displacement of thousands of people from their original homes in North-east Nigeria, MAISCEF on the 19th of December, 2015 carried out a massive outreach to one of the camps that emerged in Abuja for Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs), to give them a feel of the the festive season.
Several persons were tested for genotype and malaria. Out of the lot, three sickle cell patients were identified and registered into the fold of the NGOs for care and treatment support while those who tested positive to malaria received appropriate medication. In addition, food items and relief materials were distributed and there was a lot of dancing and merriment to mark the season.
The outreach was supported by individuals and two other NGOS
