With more people displaced recently in Southern Kaduna following a ramp up of terrorist attack, supporters of PSJ UK have partnered with RADi (Resilient Aid & Dialogue initiative), a local solution provider to reach displaced persons and communities with urgent supplies of food and basic essentials.
A combination of the Fulani Militant attacks and the current Covid-19 pandemic have heightened the threat to lives and food security in the region. 5 villages were simultaneously attacked in the early hours of the morning in Zangon Kataf LGA while the outreach was going on. 33 people were killed.
PSJ UK supplied van-loads of food consisting of Rice, Maize, Beans Garri, Red oil, Groundnut oil, salt and Maggi to three camps for Internally displaced persons (IDPs) in Zonkwa, Rimau and Goningora
In addition, 24 widows were selected to receive micro-grant for business start-ups to enable them fend for their surviving families by engaging in trades which include selling cooked foods, clothes-making and other crafts. Pepper grinding machines were purchased for 2 of the widows to engaged in the grinding trade.
RADi will remain ‘on-ground’ to provide on-going support and business mentoring to the selected recipients. They will also provide monitoring & Evaluation services on behalf of PSJ UK to account for the success of the initiative.
To reach more people and communities in desperate need of such practical support,
