The Embassy of Israel in Nigeria, together with volunteers of the Durumi IDP (Internally Displaced Persons) Camp in the FCT, opened a temporary pediatric clinic at the camp site to treat displaced children in need of primary care.
The clinic provided medical assistance to IDP children from Bama and Gwoza LGAs in the Borno State, who have been staying in the Durumi camp since they fled the Boko Haram insurgency a few years ago.
Thirty children (ages 0-4) were diagnosed and given primary medical treatment. The children were attended to by Dr. Avner Goren, an Israeli pediatrician with a sub-specialty in allergy and immunology.
The Embassy of Israel in Nigeria will strive to continue addressing the immediate needs of the IDP community.
