MPAC-IDPs Campaign- Falmata Modu

MPAC-IDPs Campaign- Cloths Distribution

 


 

On Monday 26th of October, 2015, MPAC and a number of Muslim doctors took medical aids to the IDPs camp at Masaba, FCT Abuja. This special intervention campaign targeted 2000 children under five years and 1000 pregnant or nursing mothers for this campaign as these are the most susceptible groups to outbreaks of infections in malnourished populations.

Our aim was to attempt to mitigate the effect of malnutrition on susceptibility to developing infections and severity.

The specific goals and activities during the medical relief were:

  1. Administering micro-nutrients and deworming medication (Vitamin A, Zinc, Iron + Folic acid, albendazole) to children under 5 years, nursing and pregnant mothers.
  2. Give health talks and infection prevention awareness in the camp.
  3. Conduct need assessment

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Medical Coordinators:

The initiators of this campaign were Dr. Abdulkareem Adekitan of the Lagos State Accident and Emergency Center, and Dr. Folake Kofo-Idowu, a PGY-2 Resident at the Department of Internal Medicine, University of Maryland Medical Center, Baltimore, USA, and Dr. Abdulhakeem Olayinka Ojugbele of the Federal Ministry of Health, Abuja. They generously provided the fund to procure all the medications used in the campaign and fully participated in mobilising efforts and administering the medications to the IDPs at the camp. 

MPAC is deeply appreciative to the Nigeria Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs (NSCIA) for facilitating the participation of the FCT's NYSC Corps members in the campaign. We are also thankful to the youth corps members who did a wonderful job at a moment notice.
