The Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, Delta Province 5, has concluded plans to set up vocational training centres in all resettlement camps in Delta State with a view to engaging the flood victims to enable them start up businesses.
Head of I Care for Flood Victims Flooded But Not Defeated, Mr. George Orogun, made the disclosure at Okwagbe, Ughelli South Local Government Area before leading other members of the I Care Unit of the church to donate consumables and other basic amenities to the internally-displaced persons.
Items donated include 30 bags of rice, two bags of beans, 25 cartons of Gala, 350 buckets, 400 pairs of slippers, 450 drinking cups, 50 cartons of Indomie noodles, two bags of sugar, two bags of salt, insecticide, drugs, disinfectants, three bags of garri, yam, plastic mats and 30 bags of new and fairly-used clothes.
According to Mr. Orogun, who is also an aide to Delta State governor, the donation was made possible with the support of corporate organisations like United Bank for Africa and an anonymous Muslim, who contributed N2 million.
13,835 flood victims at the Oleh resettlement camp, including 40 nursing mothers, also received relief materials worth millions of naira from the unit last Saturday.
