Camp officials in the nine flood victims’ Holding Centres in Anambra State have been tasked on proper distribution of food and other relief materials donated for the use of the victims.
The Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) Consultant, Anambra Ministry of Public Utilities, Water Resources and Community development, Mr Clement Chigbo said this to newsmen while discussing the plight of the affected persons.
``The state government as well as some organisations and good spirited Nigerians have been doing their best to provide relief materials to the flood victims in the various holding places.”
He noted that the team of the State Rural Water Supply and Sanitation Agency (RUWASSA) had also been providing portable water to the holding centres to boost hygiene.
