Daily Trust - - CITY NEWS - By Haleematu Ab­dul­razak

Smile Again Moth­ers (SAM) Foun­da­tion, a non -gov­ern­men­tal or­ga­ni­za­tion at the week­end vis­ited one of the In­ter­nally Dis­placed Per­sons (IDPs) camps at Kuchig­oro, Lugbe, a sub­urb of the Fed­eral Cap­i­tal Ter­ri­tory (FCT).

A state­ment signed by the Sec­re­tary Gen­eral of the or­ga­ni­za­tion, Mrs Hasiya Sanni Omolori noted that the foun­da­tion of­fered free ante natal ser­vices such as ul­tra sound scan­ning, con­sul­ta­tion ser­vices, HIV screen­ing, and dis­tri­bu­tion of free drugs and re­lief ma­te­ri­als to the IDPs.

“The Sabon Kuchig­oro camp is be­lieved to shel­ter about 950 IDPs from Gwoza, Maiduguri and about 56 peo­ple from Adamawa State.

“We wish to call on the gov­ern­ment to look into the sit­u­a­tion of these IDPs as our or­ga­ni­za­tion wish to do more for them when we are prop­erly funded both by the lo­cal and in­ter­na­tional donors,” the state­ment read.
