1,000 pupils dewormed in Taraba

Two NGOs — Beam a Smile Humanitarian Foundation and Keziah and Mary
Foundation — have jointly executed a deworming exercise in Ardo-kola and
Lau Local Government areas of Taraba.

Miss Mariam Dunji, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Beam a Smile
Foundation, said at the occasion on Wednesday in Malum, Taraba, that no
fewer than 1,000 pupils benefitted from the exercise.

Dunji said that the essence of the programme was to promote good health
among pupils, adding that
the children were also taught how to wash their hands properly.
She said that the pupils also received water bottles and school bags.
“Our aim is to make all of you stay free from the common sicknesses and
enjoy good health so that you will do well in your studies.”

Dunji urged the pupils to take their studies seriously in order to become
responsible citizens in future.

On her part, Miss Keziah Kefas, the CEO of Keziah and Mary Foundation, said
she was excited because God had given her foundation an opportunity to
positively touch the lives of the children in the locality.

Kefas urged the government and other humanitarian organisations to
collaborate and improve the lives of school children in the rural areas.
Earlier, Dr Judith Odekina, a medical practitioner with the foundation, who
administered the deworming tablets and multivitamins, urged them to always
maintain personal hygiene.

Meanwhile, Mr Yuguda Kunku, the Head Teacher, Garin Malum Primary
school, Malum, one of the benefiting schools, expressed delight over the
exercise.

Kunku noted that the gesture would inspire other children in the community
to enrol in the school in order to have a better society.
