VP’s wife seeks humanitarian support for needy, malnourished children

The wife of the Vice-President, Mrs Dolapo Osinbajo, has appealed organisations and well-meaning Nigerians to support to the needy and malnourished children in the country.

Osinbajo made the appeal at the launch of the “Get Involved” Initiative to prevent annual death of thousands of malnourished Nigerian children in the internally Displaced Persons (IDP) camps in Lagos on Saturday.

According to her, the gesture can be in form of material items.

The wife of the President, Hajiya Aisha Buhari, launched the ‘Get Involved’ initiative at the State House, Abuja on July 21.

The programme is a major component of her “Future Assured”, pet project to tackle malnutrition.

Osinbajo said that women and children were the most vulnerable, and stressed the need to invest in providing succour to the IDPs in the country.

“We are appealing to all Nigerians to get involved in providing humanitarian support for these needy and malnourished children in the country, especially those in the IDP camps.

“These children need our support in every way to make them healthy and build there future,” she said.

Also, the Lagos State Deputy Governor, Dr Idiat Adebule, expressed the state government’s support for the initiative to save the lives of the needy children.

Adebule also called on the people in the state to get involved in the programme to put smile on the faces of the needy children.
