Over 1,000 internally displaced Agatu women and children camped at the Central Primary School Ugbokpo, Apa Local Government  Area of Benue state have been provided free medical care by the Live Healthy Organisation (LHO).

The medical outreach which was sponsored by the wife of the immediate past Senate President, Mrs. Kate Mark, treated the inmates for various ailments, while those with serious health conditions were moved to health facilities outside the camp for treatment.

Speaking on the initiative, Mrs. Mark who decried the condition of the women and children in the camp, and said the outreach was her modest contribution to the wellbeing of the Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs).

She lamented that children in the camp were malnourished due to poor feeding and proper medicare and pleaded with public spirited individuals and organisations to come to the aid of the displaced persons.

Mrs. Mark, who said she was moved by the condition of the IDPs to undertake the outreach programme, promised to sustain the exercise till the inmates returned to their ancestral homes.

The chairman of the camp management committee, Rev. John Attah who lauded the initiative disclosed that 15 IDPs in the camp with serious health conditions had so far been referred to hospitals in Otukpo, Gboko and Makurdi for medical attention. He urged well-meaning individuals and organisations to emulate Mrs. Mark by coming to the aid of the IDPs who were in dire need of support and assistance.
