On Monday June 13th and yesterday, Wednesday June 15th, the Executive Governor of Borno State, Kashim Shettima, instructed Empower 54 and Borno SEMA to immediately evacuate the malnourished children rescued from Sambisa Forest by the Nigerian Army in Bama.
Empower 54 has the difficult task of identifying the patients to be moved. Borno SEMA is providing shelter, food and other items for their care while Doctors Without Borders (MSF) are providing medical care.
On Monday, over 1,000 extremely malnourished children were evacuated in 15 large school busses to a secure treatment location in Maiduguri provided by the Borno State government.
Yesterday, despite heavy rains, Empower 54 was in the rain for over 3hours selecting children to be evacuated and successfully moved over 500 people. Trucks of food were sent and distributed at the camp by the Governor who also went to see the malnourished children and women rescued from Boko Haram.
We thank the Governor of Borno State, Kashim Shettima, for taking prompt action to save these lives as soon as his attention was drawn to the situation.
Well wishers can support Empower 54’s efforts and donate clothing and other items to help these victims as we all unite to Rise Above Terror.
