Baba Azumi Foundation has trained over 26,000 public on prevention measures to avert any possible cholera outbreak as a result of the devastating flood that ravaged many communities in Jigawa state.
The Director of Baba Azumi Foundation, Barrister Aisha Suleiman Jahun in an interactive session with newsmen in Dutse said after donating some relief materials to over 1,300 families who suffered from the flood in three local government areas, we also observed the risk of cholera outbreak as a result of the breakdown of water system sanitary facilities and other related personal and environmental hygiene facilities.
“In a move to support state government effort to forestall the possibility of the disease outbreak, we trained 60 public healthcare personnel who went and cascaded the training to the over 26,000 people in different communities.
“We have also trained 90 people on disaster management and emergency support for assisting the community in case of any eventuality.”
Barrister Aisha added that the training was provided to the beneficiaries’ community in collaboration with STAT Fund and Action Aid Nigeria.
According to her, the beneficiary’s communities are selected from the Miga, Guru, and Guaiwa local government areas of the state.
