The residents of Runde-Bin Internally Displaced Persons (IDP) camp in Bauchi were filled with joy after receiving food items as part of the ongoing food package distribution for vulnerable households.

He acknowledged the substantial support provided by the state government through the office of the first lady and Almuhibba Foundation, which has greatly contributed to making their stay in Bauchi more comfortable.

During the distribution exercise, Ali Duguri, the program manager of Almuhibba Foundation, highlighted that the food items distributed, including rice and maize, were aimed at alleviating poverty and addressing hunger among the residents.

Additionally, Ali Duguri expressed appreciation to the Northeast Development Commission for entrusting Almuhibba Foundation with this vital intervention and expressed hope that the distributed food items would be utilized effectively.ed effectively.
