In its bid to bring succour to thousands of people displaced as result of the current flood which is ravaging some parts of Nigeria, a non-profit organization that goes by the name “Princewill’s Trust” considered it humane and delivered a truck load of relief materials to victims of the recent flood in Rivers State.
The aid materials donated to the casualties at Ahoada East and Ahoda West relief camps included medical supplies, toiletries, bottled water, torch lights, fire wood, a tanker of clean water and several medical personnel.
The coordinator of the Princewill Trust and a former governorship candidate in Rivers State, Tonye Princewill who led hundreds of volunteers to the camps said it was their own way of helping to bring succour to the displaced persons mostly from Rivers State.
According to an online press statement made available by Chief Eze Chukwuemeka Eze on behalf of the organization, called on other well-meaning individuals and groups to identify with those in the camps as their current situation was not man-made but due to natural disaster occasioned by the changing weather conditions across the world.
A volunteer who identified himself as Boma has said, “I joined the relief team set up by Prince Tonye Princewill as a volunteer to help assist Rivers indigenes that have been placed in relief camps due to the current flood crisis in some parts of Rivers State. We visited two camps at Ahoada East and one at Ahoda West.The camps were mostly overcrowded and were in need of some basic facilities such as medical supplies, clean water, toilets etc.
Tonye Princewill also appealed for more volunteers to join the Princewill Trust at the two camps in Ahoada to help encourage those displaced by the worst flood in Nigeria in over forty years.
