  • Nnaedozie Thomas Foundation extends support and solidarity to the internal displaced persons (IDP) camp


The Boko Haram insurgency, which began in 2009, has resulted in the displacement of more than 2.3 million Nigerians from their homes. This, combined with other insurgencies in Nigeria, has created a dire situation, with regional food crises and famine becoming prevalent in certain parts of our society.

The internally displaced persons (IDPs) face numerous challenges and obstacles in their already unstable lives. These challenges encompass malnourishment, unemployment, poverty, absence of caregivers and adequate shelter, as well as limited access to essential services such as clean water and proper hygiene facilities. Among the IDPs, girls and women are particularly vulnerable and at a higher risk of facing additional dangers, including rape, exploitation, and prostitution. Furthermore, they struggle to access sufficient food and are in desperate need of hygiene products, clothing, improved accommodation, medical attention, and economic empowerment. Consequently, they become heavily reliant on aid and donations to survive.

In addition to its humanitarian assistance initiatives, the Nnaedozie Thomas Foundation (NTF) actively works to raise awareness within the community about the challenges faced by these marginalized individuals in our society. The foundation also advocates for the well-being of Nigerian citizens, both within the country and in the diaspora, with a strong focus on alleviating poverty within our community and the nation as a whole. Recognizing the dire conditions of IDPs in Nigeria, the NTF embarked on a compassionate mission on October 10th, 2021, by visiting one of the IDP camps in Abuja. The aim was to provide much-needed assistance and love to over 500 internally displaced individuals.

As the Chairman of the Nnaedozie Thomas Foundation often emphasizes, quoting John F. Kennedy, “Ask not what your country can do for you – ask what you can do for your country.” In alignment with this ethos, the foundation aims to contribute to poverty alleviation by addressing the immediate need of hunger. Food kits and beverages were distributed to all, bringing smiles to the faces of the children who were delighted to see the NTF team. Prayers were offered for the team and their benefactors, underscoring the importance of spiritual well-being and support in times of adversity.


The Nnaedozie Thomas Foundation remains committed to playing its part in making the world a better place. Through initiatives like this, the foundation strives to bring hope, relief, and assistance to those who have been displaced and marginalized. By recognizing the needs of IDPs and providing tangible support, the foundation aims to restore a sense of dignity and empower these individuals to rebuild their lives. Additionally, by advocating for poverty alleviation and raising awareness, the NTF seeks to mobilize the broader community and inspire collective action in addressing the underlying causes of displacement and poverty.

In conclusion, the Nnaedozie Thomas Foundation’s visit to an IDP camp in Abuja stands as a testament to their commitment to serving those in need. By providing vital assistance, love, and support, the foundation acknowledges the challenges faced by IDPs and works towards alleviating their suffering. Through acts of compassion and advocacy, the NTF aims to bring about positive change, improve livelihoods, and contribute to the overall well-being of our community and nation.
