National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA), in collaboration with Kano State Emergency Management Agency (SEMA), distributed relief materials to 250 victims of fire and flood disasters in the state on Sunday.

NEMA coordinator for Kano/Jigawa territorial office, Nuradeen Abdullahi, said the donation was part of the federal government’s efforts to support the victims of disasters nationwide.

Abdullahi, represented by NEMA Kano Head of Account, Rilwan Isma’il, urged the beneficiaries to make judicious use of the items.

On his part, the executive secretary SEMA, Saleh Jili, said the relief items were to bring succour to the victims.

He said the materials included maize 100kg, roofing sheets, nylon mats, blankets, mattresses, plastic buckets, salt, toiletries, clothing, and mosquito nets.

“The victims were affected by the fire that burnt their houses and flood in 2022″ Mr Jili said. 

Mr Jili urged public members, especially women using firewood and charcoal, to handle fire carefully and always switch off their electrical appliances whenever they leave home or go to bed to avoid fire outbreaks.

Speaking on behalf of the beneficiaries, Muhammad Zakari commended the agency for the kind gesture.
