Nigerian legendary singer, Tuface Idibia made a cheque presentation on
Monday, February 27, 2017 to the United Nations High Commission for
Refugees (UNHCR) in Lagos.
Tuface who talked on the condition of the IDPs on his last visit said;
“The conditions I met the internally displaced persons, when I
visited their various camps were terrible. They were really terrible.
“The 2Face Foundation has, therefore, decided to enter into
partnership with the UNHCR to see how we can help put smiles on the
faces of these persons. My foundation is today presenting this cheque to
the UNHCR to support it in its operations of alleviating the sufferings
of these IDPs.”
Ms Brigitte Mukango-Eno, the UNHCR’s Acting Country Representative to
Nigeria, who received the cheque, thanked Tuface for the kind gesture.
“We sincerely want to express the gratitude of the UNHCR to 2Face.
This is a right step toward our private sector following. Over these
years, it has become important for us, as an organisation, to depend on
the private sector, for us to be able to meet our responsibilities.
2Face has scored a very important goal by discovering the UNHCR Office
within the UN system. We want to use this opportunity to appeal to other
private Nigerians and philanthropists to emulate this gesture by the
2Face Foundation in alleviating the conditions of the IDPs in the North
East.” she said.
