The Victims Support Fund (VSF) has flagged of a N300 million community restoration programme at Nyakwala community in Wukari Local Government Area of Taraba State to mitigate the devastating effects of a 2014 attack on the community.
Chairman of the fund and former Minister of Defense, Gen. Theophilus Danjuma (rtd), who laid the foundation for the reconstruction of some key infrastructure in the community, explained that the place was destroyed during an attack by unknown gunmen.
He said that the intervention was a full package that was aimed at restoring the hope of residents of the community and enhance their means of livelihood.
Danjuma, who was represented by his Special Assistant on Operations and Programmes, Mrs Toyosi Akerele, said some of the key areas of intervention include the reconstruction of the community’s school, total restoration of the Nyakwala Dispensary with an incinerator, stable solar power, and an ambulance with full medical supplies.
