Speaking about the initiative, Nikki Laoye says “It is really a sad situation in the north for our fellow brothers and sisters and we do pray for God’s help and strength to our troops to quench this invasion once and for all. In the meantime, We have to look out for our own and do what we can to soothe their pains. They are in constant need of food, water, clothing and more to survive daily as they rebuild their lives once again. It’s the little we can do.”
