As the world faces a severe and acute public health emergency due to the on-going Covid-19 global pandemic, the Federal Government’s policies and interventions in the past few weeks has been critical in influencing the trajectory of the pandemic in the country.
Part of these policies which include a “Stay at Home” order has seen millions of indigent Nigerians who live from hand to mouth in dire need for urgent help.
As we recognize the efforts of the Federal Government to provide palliatives to this group of people, the NYSC FCT Coordinator, Hajiya Isa Walida Saddique, through her leadership keyed into the government’s effort by providing bags of rice, beans, garri, maize, cartons of indomie, salt, maggi and self produced hand sanitizers and liquid soaps to the people of Karimajiji, a sub-urb of Abuja.
It was an electrifying atmosphere filled with immense joy as FCT SDGS Corp Members went from house to house educating the people on the various preventive measures against Covid-19, bursting myths and sharing different categories of food items.
The District Head of Karimajiji, Chief Abdullahi Yunusa Bako, expressed his gratitude to the Coordinator and her team for considering it worthwhile to come to the community to assist the people.
Like Winston Churchill said;
“We make a living by what we get but we make a life by what we give, nothing feels better than being a part of this life saving process”.
