Modupe Ozolua Determined To Rehabilitate Internally Displaced Nigerians

Due to the devastation left in the wake of Boko Haram attacks, those that live to tell their stories now face what seem like a bleak future.

Countless lives have been taken. Families torn apart and worlds shattered. Families have watched their loved ones slaughtered before their very eyes. Children have become orphans either from parents being killed or losing their parents during desperate attempts to escape their villages alive.

From having homes, regardless if they were small huts, to now sleeping on open fields with no food, shelter nor clothing beyond what's on their bodies. From having a source of livelihood to feed their families, to over night, becoming beggars depending on handouts from government or civil groups, to survive.

During a 3 day informative visit to Gombe State, Modupe Ozolua and her foundation, Body Enhancement Foundation, visited many temporary camps and host communities harboring the displaced Nigerians and announced their intentions to help by taking on the challenge of properly rehabilitating as many families as they can.

Ozolua has informed both the Gombe government officials and displaced persons that her foundation has a strategic plan on how to help them reintegrate back into society and regain their lost dignity. Arrangements to commence rehabilitating them within the next few days are currently underway.
