We help improve the living conditions of the Internally Displaced Persons.
"We have been receiving help from kind-hearted people, but Covid-19 has kept them away from us." This is the lament of so many Internally Displaced Persons.
Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) are victims of the dreaded Boko Haram and herdsmen onslaught, flood disasters, fire outbreaks, pipeline explosion, and other forms of disasters. Over 6 million individuals have been displaced by one or two of the causes listed above. They are living in Internally Displaced Persons’ Camps (IDPCs) without good food, shelter, clothing, Medicare and other basic amenities; they are terribly traumatized.
Life has been unbearable for them, but Covid-19 has made life more difficult for them. The lock-down imposed on the country has crippled a lot of corporate organisations and individuals who would have supported the IDPs. This situation has made reaching these people with the Word of God and every support they can get very important and urgent.
The Bible Society of Nigeria, in collaboration with like-minded organisations and individuals intend to reach out to more IDPs with clothing, bedding, toiletries, Bibles, and mini Bible-based Trauma Healing Sessions to make life easier for them in the camps and give them hope that God has not abandoned them despite their difficulties.
