#TrekkingFromAccratoLagos to raise funds for IDPs
I am Hussaini Kwaifa, a staff of the Peoples Media Limited, publishers of Peoples Daily Newspaper.
Following the heavy onslaught of the Boko Haram insurgents in the North eastern part of my country, Nigeria and the massive displacement of people, including women and children otherwise called Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs).
I have decided to help alleviate the suffering of the IDPs whom have been rendered homeless and hopeless by embarking on a trek from Accra in Ghana to Lagos in Nigeria to raise funds for the IDPs. Part of my mission is to create awareness on the plight of the IDPs. With this campaign (#TrekkingForIDPs), I hope to mobilize concerned individuals, organisation and institutions to come their aid.
For now this is the best idea and method I have come up with to raise funds to assist thousand of IDPs currently in my country, and to motivate the the general public to contribute financially or otherwise through these three (3) charity organization that support IDPSs namely ICICECENTER.ORG, Daily Trust (IDP) Relief Fund and ACECHARITYAFRICA.ORG. No fund or surpport for the IDPs should be channeled to me as an individual as my mission is selfless.
#InShaAllah I will begin my #TrekkingFromAccraToLagos on Saturday 10th of October, 2015 at 7am by Tema, Accra aroundabout Accra, Ghana.
I have always felt bad for the IDPs and I believe that together we can make their life better and also stop them from joining terrorist gangs, drug trafficking and prostitution.
Please, I urge the good citizens of Nigeria, Ghana other W/African countries and international community to contribute to the IDPs upkeep.
Finally I need your prayers for my safety while I trek back to my lovely country, Nigeria. Thank you.
