Genevieve, Tiwa Savage, Don Jazzy & Dr Sid on Reach Out Initiative in Delta State
With the ongoing issue of flood ravaging the coastal regions of Nigeria and many states including Bayelsa,Delta,Port Harcourt,Anambra,Kogi,Edo, Nigerian celebrities (Genevieve Nnaji, Don Jazzy, Dr. Sid, and Tiwa Savage) under ‘The Reach Out Initiative’ have gone showing some support by distributing relief materials to victims of flood disaster in Asaba, Delta State.
They hope to capitalise on their celebrity status and raise more awareness about this ongoing natural disaster.
They are also soliciting for support both from within and outside the country, through relief supplies or financial donations. Right now thousands of people are homeless and have been temporarily relocated by the Government. Also many farmers lost their farms to the rampaging flood, some farmers even committed suicide because they took large loans from banks.The disaster was caused by torrential rainfall which caused the River Niger to surge.
