Pathfinders and WOFS (Abuja) Provide Hearts of Hope Support for IDPs at Gwoza-Bama IDP Camp, Abuja

ABUJA, NIGERIA.  On March 3, 2017 and in partnership with Word of Faith School (Abuja), Pathfinders organised an outreach which provided almost 300 Hearts of Hope packages (food, clothing and basic hygiene items) to survivors of the Boko Haram insurgency at the Gwoza-Bama IDP Camp in Abuja (Area 1), Nigeria. The camp is currently hosting 2,700 survivors in Nigeria’s capital city, 30% of whom are young children (many orphaned by Boko Haram). According to Camp Coordinator Idris Ibrahim, the camp is desperately in need of food, accommodation for survivors and medical assistance.  They are only able to educate the children up to primary school level and older students cannot further their education due to limited resources.

We are certainly grateful to the over 100 engaged and conscientious students who were excited to serve and who donated all the items for our Hearts of Hope packages to the camp. Thank you, also, to the teachers and staff who also donated and helped us organize the outreach.   That being said, the camp desperately needs additional support (watch our Facebook LIVE video below). If you are willing and able to support the Gwoza-Bama camp, please contact us via email: Thank you for caring!
