Several communities in many parts of Nigeria are experiencing heavy flooding as Cameroon releases excess water from Lagdo Dam. Many families have been rendered homeless., while hundreds have lost their lives.
Schools have been designated as camps for the displaced persons. Healing Hands Health Society has adopted 2 camps of 2000 people each . We are addressing the food crisis by providing hot meals at the ICS Camp in Oleh and Alaka Grammar School , Ozoro. We are also working in Ibaji , Kogi State, Amassoma Bayelsa State as well as Okwagbe in Delta State.
The sick bay being run by the Red Cross at the camp has called for medication and other supplies for the families under their care.
