The drugs and items worth one million naira were part of the Community Development Project of the Corps member.
 
Dr. Iniabasi Bassey, a  Youth corp member with the joint military force in Yenagoa said her visit to the camp early this year was to see what she can do to assist the women and children suffering in the camp.
 
Bassey who addressed the beneficiaries, said she was moved with  the deplorable situation at the camp and took it upon herself as part of her primary assignment to put smile on their faces.
 
“When I visited the camp early this year, it was a horrible situation and I took it upon myself to render the little assistance I can to alleviate the suffering of the people medically because health is wealth.” she said.
She therefore advised them to make judicious use of the drugs and the treated mosquitoes net saying they should not fail to go for medical help where necessary.
 
Accepting the items from Dr. Iniabasi,  Chief Noel Meshack, Chairman of the (IDPs) in Bayelsa, thanked Bassey for her kind gesture and promise to make good use of the items donated to them.
 
He also used the opportunity to call on other donor agencies to come to their aides to compliment efforts of the government.
 
The Director of Sports in Bayelsa Mr. Ayerite Judgenut who represented the Commissioner for Sports, Mr. Igbete Dasime, NYSC Local Government Inspector  Yenagoa, officials of the joint force amongst others attended the ceremony.
