Following the mass influx of internally displaced persons from their displaced territories, as part of its social responsibilities, NADI in collaboration with Global Shapers (Kano hub) organized the Compilation and the distribution of some items of necessity to alleviate some of the few challenges being faced by the displaced persons. This was initially planned for distribution in the IDP camp for the displaced persons from Bama Local Government of Borno State located a few kilometers from the central capital.  In the early hours of Sunday, 21st of June 2015, a car was loaded with the items and NADI staff proceeded to the IDP camp. However due to some security challenges and new regulations for distributions that were set up by the custodians of the camps, the distribution was not possible and the items were re-directed to the internally displaced persons living in the host communities in Mairi Ward and Gomari Costain respectively. The items for distribution included mainly clothing for men, women and young children inclusive of warm clothing such as socks and head warmers. Mosquito nets were also distributed to the affected persons living in the host communities of Mairi and Gomari Costain respectively.
