The first team has visited two communities, Kwaikwayu and Kafin Babushe  in Ringim local government area of Jigawa state, which have been badly hit; on Monday 15th September, 2020.

At both communities, most of the homes have been washed away, rendering hundreds of the occupants homeless and forcing them to relocate to a block of five classrooms in the village primary school.

Head of the delegation, Mr. Hadi Uba, Special Assistant to the President on Administration (Office of the First Lady), who spoke on behalf of the First Lady during delivery of the items, expressed concern over the frequent flooding in different parts of the country, noting the economic and emotional trauma associated with flooding which leads to loss of loved ones, property and farmland.
