The world is faced with a dreaded pandemic called Corona Virus (Covid19) with more than 4 million coronavirus cases and more than 200 thousand deaths globally, the world continues to battle the COVID-19 pandemic. Even before the outbreak, the outlook for the world economy—and especially developing countries like Nigeria—was fragile, as global GDP growth was estimated to be only 2.5 per cent in 2020.
The pandemic is having an untold negative impact on the world economy thereby causing hunger. With the exponential increase in the number of COVID-19 cases recorded daily, there will also be an increase in food shortage which increases the vulnerability of people.
Kije Outreach Foundation saw a need to distribution food items as palliatives to vulnerable people to help flatten the effect of COVID-19. Food items were distributed to over 200 widows and people with special needs (Disability).
Also, Kije shared love by feeding Muslim children for “Iftar Sadarka” with the help of Hajiya Unmi in Kaduna State. We sincerely appreciate the support by Kaduna State Ministry of Human Services and Social Development, Northern Governors Wives Forum and Kegy’s Media.
