The Field Coordinator for group in Borno state, Cathy Hansens, stated this while opening the new centre at Fori in Jere Local Government Area of the State.

According to her, the new centre brings to three the total number of specialised feeding centres in the city.

She explained that the feeding programme has been impactful, considering the number of children the centre admit and cater for. ’’We are very thankful to see the children improving, playing and running out of our centre healthy”.

The District Head of Maisandanri village, Alhaji Abba Bukar, thanked the group for its efforts and urged parents and guardian to take malnourished children to Fori, Dala and Gwange health centres respectively for medications.
