We are here to give them this token, it may not be much but this token of cash and palliative gift items worth millions will help in the resettlement process.
Responding to the gesture of humanity on behalf of the recipients, the Alumni representative of the institution’s Governing Council, Mrs Berezi Bekibina expressed appreciation to the President for the initiative and assured that the beneficiaries would make good use of the support so graciously offered, with an appeal to the president to extend the gesture to various IDP camps to give more hope to displaced families.
