Disbursing the funds to the women in Doma on Thursday, Mrs. Safiya Sani, the state Programme Officer of the institute, urged the beneficiaries to ensure judicial use of the resources.
Sani said that the body deemed it necessary to come to the aid of the vulnerable women and care givers to give them a sense of belonging.
“The Institute of Human Virology Nigeria (IHVN) deems it necessary to disburse this money to the vulnerable women and caregivers in Doma to improve on their standard of living and that of their family members.
“I urge you to use this fund to take care of your children, their health and other problems to better their health and standard of living,” she said.
Sani called on the vulnerable women and other people to always take adequate care of their health and that of their family members, saying “a healthy nation, is a wealthy nation”.
