Union Bank IDP

Union Bank #WeCare4IPDs

THE BRIEF

As part of efforts to improve the conditions of Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in Nigeria, DottsMediaHouse in partnership with Union Bank launched the WeCare4IDPs campaign in 2016.
 
WeCare4IDPs is a citizenship initiative which creates a platform for all Nigerians – individuals and corporate bodies to be a part of the solution in matters concerning IDPs by raising funds to support them.
 
The WeCare4IDPs campaign is called on 1 million Nigerians to donate at least N1,000 during the campaign.. Funds raised were used directly in funding direct impact projects defined in the 2017 Nigeria Humanitarian Response Plan (HRP) developed by the United Nations Office of the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (UNOCHA) with the support of the Federal Ministry of Budget and Planning.
This project eventually helped with the following..
• Reducing the scourge of malnutrition faced by IDPs, especially children
• Preventing the potential for the spread of disease by improving sanitation and access to water
• Reducing mortality rate, especially in children, by providing access to improved healthcare
• Providing access to basic education for displaced children living in camps and host communities
• Re-integrating IDPs into society through economic empowerment and skills training.
