UN to assist Anambra flood victms

Written By Arthur king peters on Sunday, 14 October 2012 | 22:43


SPECIAL Adviser to Delta State Governor, Foreign Affairs, Mr. Oma Djeba, weekend, said, that the United Nations would assist flood victims in Delta and Anambra states.

Djeba at Okwagbe in a chat  with newsmen moments after he donated food items to victims at Okwagbe camp, Ughelli South council, described the flood situation in the area as very alarming.

He assured that the state government was making efforts to collaborate with international and non-governmental organisations to address the challenges posed by the flood disaster in the state in line with the three approaches recommended by the state governor, Dr. Emmanuel Uduaghan.

He said: “The governor had written to United Nations and UN has replied, and only two states, Delta and Anambra States were listed to benefit from the UN’s assistance.”

Noting that with no fewer than 1500 flood victims, the camp was already being overcrowded, he said, “based on the prescription of the state governor, the maximum is 800 per camp. I think the next step we are to take now is to create another camp and take some of the people there to avoid an outbreak of epidemic.”

In related development, a transport firm, Dominion Express Transport, has donated food items and other relief materials to flood victims at the Oharisi Primary School camp in the Ughelli metropolis.

Mean while, camps in Delta State, have continued to receive  relief materials. The latest came from the management of Mainstreet Bank Limited, which donated blankets; mattresses; various food items such as cartons of milk, sugar, beverages, bags of rice, garri and beans; toiletries and detergents such as soap, antiseptic and toothpaste as well as insecticide treated mosquito nets among others.
