Nigerians have been urged by a Non-Governmental Organisation, identified as The Good Samaritan Foundation to support internally displaced persons across the country.
The group, which is based in the United Kingdom, lamented the plight of the people in the camps and said it would address some of their challenges.
A statement on Thursday said the group’s founder and director, Mrs. Funmi Ademilua, stated that the NGO had been giving out relief items such as food, groceries, clothes, drugs and mattresses to displaced persons.
“As a trained counsellor and a product of single parent, who has experienced emotional hard side of life, I want to fill the gap of psychological, social and economic needs of the hopeless and the underprivileged.
“We are also bringing in counsellors and nurses to address post-traumatic stress disorder, especially among children at some of the IDP camps. Public-spirited people and philanthropists should help the IDPs.
“We are in Nigeria to join the government in assisting the people that have been overwhelmed by the damage done by terror and the prevailing economic recession. The problems of IDPs are too enormous to be left to government alone,” she said.
