As the coronavirus pandemic continues to cause hunger in poor Nigerian homes, Ray of Hope Empowerment Foundation (ROHEF) has come to the rescue of those in need.
The foundation was able to distribute relief packages to 150 Nigerian families in Nasarawa state with the support of Aids Healthcare Foundation (AHF).
The 150 families in Mararaba, Karu local government area of Nasarawa state received items that included rice, beans, yam, spaghetti, noodles, vegetable oil, palm oil, among others.
Reacting to the kind gesture from AHF, ROHEF said: "You are a blessing! We truly appreciate your organization for joining us to respond to the needs of families within Nigeria and across the world."
Members of the community were also sensitised on simple steps they need to take to help them keep safe and stop the further spread of COVID-19.
In other news, a nurse based in the United States has said she and other Nigerians living in the North American country do not believe that coronavirus back home is real.
The nurse identified as Yetunde Ifelowo said Nigeria's population is just like New York, adding that Nigeria would have had more cases than the United States if the virus is real back home.
She said the United States is more equipped than Nigeria, adding that the latter does not have a functioning hospital that could admit patients.
Speaking about cases being reported in Nigeria, she said: "Who is really taking care of these people? Who are the nurses? Which hospital were they in? How many days were they in the hospital?
"So to me and some other Nigerians, we do not believe that Nigeria has the case. I think because of the herbs and home remedies that we are taking, I think it really helps. And this very virus doesn't survive under heat - so maybe that could be an advantage."
