Edegware described the condition of the IDPs as unfortunate and urged other spirited individuals and organization support them even as the Delta State Government is doing it best.
“The donation was part of efforts by the Foundation to reach out to the less privileged by touching lives, especially the Internally Displaced Persons in the state. It is our contribution to reduce the pains the people are passing through.
“We feel it is necessary for us to identify with you at this trying time and period and if others are doing same, I think it will go a long way in helping out in some of the problems .
