In a bit to alleviate the suffering of the Internally Displaced Persosns in Mangu Local government area of Plateau state, a Non- Governmental Organization: African Child Awake Project (ACAP) partners with Bentu foundation in Jos to distribute relief items to the affected persons. The NGOs visited the IDPs at the Pilot Science Primary School Bungha in Mangu- where they meet with the camp director Mr. Enoch Gumwesh
In their opening remarks, ACAP director, Esther Akare said it is out of passion and compassion and for the gospel of Christ that they have decided to contribute their own widow’s might to see that those who are in the IDP’s camp get something to eat and wear no matter how little.
In the same vain the founder of Samuel Longkat Bentu foundation Arc. Samuel Longkat Bentu a pastor and a philanthropist represented by his personal assistant Mr. Fwangshak Samson express his willingness to always support in anyway he can to see that the IDPs have a sense of belonging as Mangu is his own hometown and he will always do the needful to support his people in need.
The food items was shared to the IDPs directly by ACAP and Samuel Longkat Bentu foundation. However, due to the population in the camp only lactating mothers and pregnant women were selected as beneficiaries. The beneficiaries were grateful for this kind gesture and pray for open doors and God’s blessings on the sponsors.
