Angered by the malnutrition in some parts of the country, the Senators’ Wives Forum (SWF) has contributed towards fortified foodstuffs and body care products for weaned infants and children at the various Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) camps.

The Forum, represented by Hajia Hadiza Ali Wakili and Mrs. Louis Gyunka from Bauchi South and Nasarawa North Senatorial Districts respectively, and the Executive Coordinator of the Forum, Ms. Inimfon Etuk, made the donation during the launch of the “Get Involved” component of the Future Assured Initiative, organised by the wife of the President, Mrs. Aisha Buhari, on Friday, in Abuja.

The Get Involved campaign was meant to rally contributions from Nigerians to address heightened incidence of malnutrition in IDPs camps.

In her remarks, leader of the delegation, Hajia Hadiza Wakili who spoke on behalf of the Forum Chair and wife of the Senate President, Mrs. Toyin Saraki, said: "We are moved by the rising and alarming reports of hunger, starvation and malnutrition of our displaced citizens, especially young infants and children, and hope our contribution will go some way to alleviate the heavy public burden of care for our sisters, brothers and children in these displaced communities, as canvassed by the wife of the President, Federal Republic of Nigeria, Her Excellency, Mrs. Aisha Buhari.”

The delegation from the Senators’ Wives Forum was earlier given a tour of all the products on display at the venue of the rally where the attendants took time to explain the nutritional value and content of all the products on sale before the Forum made its product selection and donation.

The Senators’ Wives Forum – established in 1999 – is a friendly society sustained by individual contributions from its members. It comprises spouses of Senators in Nigeria’s upper legislative chambers. It is currently chaired by Mrs. Toyin Saraki and wife of the President of the Senate, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki.
