Jam Intervention For Vulnerable Children And Climate Change Initiative (Jam-Initiative), an NGO, has donated school materials to children of military widows in Maiduguri, Borno.
The President of the NGO, Mrs Josie Mudasiru, who said this in a statement Friday in Abuja, said the items donated included books, school bags, writing materials, rayon, mathematical sets and facemasks.
She said the NGO was proud in identifying with children of military personnel that lost their lives in the ongoing counter insurgency operation in the North East.
Mudasiru, who was represented at the presentation by Mr Hassan Arabi, Programme Officer of the NGO, reiterated the commitment of the organisation to the well-being of children, especially the vulnerable ones in the society.
“Today, we are here to identify with children of military personnel that lost their lives in the ongoing counter insurgency operation in Maiduguri.
“We know that the military is a responsible organisation that takes good care of its own. The gesture is to show solidarity and identify with the plight of the military family, especially the orphans.
“The society recognises your sacrifices and to those whose loved ones paid the supreme price, you are not alone. Our prayers and thoughts are always with you,” she said.
Mudasiru, therefore, urged other well meaning Nigerians to always remember and extend assistance to the families of fallen heroes.
She commended the Nigerian Army Officers Wives Association (NAOWA) for the good job it was doing in empowering women.
Responding, the Headmistress of NAOWA Primary School, Mrs Rita Abomchi, who received the items on behalf of the NAOWA President (7 Division), Mrs Halima Ibrahim, appreciated the NGO for the gifts.
She promised that the school materials donated to the pupils would get to them accordingly.
