There are so many displaced persons due to the flood disaster that plagued Delta state since September. Many have relocated from their homes and are kept in relief centers (IDP camps). IDP means Internally Displaced persons. This project sets to reach out to the victims in Isoko South and Isoko North respectively in order to provide professional counseling services to them and give necessary relief materials to enable them embrace the challenges of life and face the realities that confront them.
This project will provide professional counseling services to the victims. The victims would be given empowerment pack according to their areas of economic interest. Those without hand work would be registered in the skill acquisition program organized by the foundation. The project would interface with the Government to ensure neatness and maintenance of the facilities within the relief centers.
