Supporting 250 Displaced Plateau Families

By Gbadebo Odularu, Ph.D | The President & CEO

On the fateful day of December 25, 2023, while the world was immersed in the joyous celebrations of Christmas, the communities of Bokkos, Barkin Ladi, and Mangu Local Government Areas (LGA) in Plateau State, Nigeria, were struck by a horrifying attack. This merciless act left numerous individuals maimed, families displaced and claimed the lives of innocent souls. The aftermath of this tragedy plunged these communities into deep anguish and urgency for immediate humanitarian support.

In recognition of the tremendous suffering endured by the affected families, No Hunger Initiatives swiftly responded to provide vital assistance and relief. No Hunger Initiatives embarked on a mission to provide support and assistance to 250 displaced families from Plateau State. The families affected were in urgent need of essential supplies and resources to help them through the challenging period. Our goal was to alleviate their suffering and provide them with the necessary support to rebuild their lives.

Amidst the efforts to support the 250 displaced families from Bokkos, Barkin Ladi, and Mangu LGAs of Plateau State, an inspiring story emerged that exemplified the resilience and strength of our affected community.

During a visit to one of the temporary shelters, our team had the privilege of meeting Mama Salamatu, a courageous woman who had lost everything in the brutal attack. Despite the unimaginable tragedy she had endured, Mama Salamatu remained determined to rebuild her life and provide a better future for her children. Mama Salamatu's unwavering spirit touched the hearts of our team members. Her determination to turn adversity into an opportunity for growth and healing was truly inspiring. With the support of our organization, Mama Salamatu received the necessary resources to restart her life, including access to medical care, and psychosocial support.

Over time, Mama Salamatu's resilience and hard work paid off. She utilized the skills gained through the livelihood training to establish a small business within the community. Not only did this enable her to provide for her children, but it also served as a beacon of hope for others facing similar challenges. Mama Salamatu's story became a symbol of hope and empowerment within the community. Her entrepreneurial spirit inspired others to believe in their own abilities and strive for a brighter future. Through her determination and the support of our organization, a ripple effect of positive change began to spread among the displaced families.

Mama Salamatu's journey is just one among many, highlighting the transformative power of assistance and compassion. It reminds us that together, we can make a lasting impact on the lives of those affected by tragedy. As we continue our support for the 250 displaced Plateau Families, we remain committed to empowering individuals like Mama Salamatu to rebuild their lives and create a future filled with hope and opportunity.

We express our gratitude to all our donors, partners, and dedicated volunteers who made this intervention possible. Together, we are making a difference in the lives of those affected by displacement, offering hope and support to the most vulnerable members of our community.
