Pan-African Association Provides Aid to Internally Displaced in Rollo

PABRÉ — The Pan-African Community Association of Eden took a significant step forward in assisting internally displaced persons (IDPs) in Rollo, Pabré, by distributing essential food and survival supplies on Saturday, March 30, 2024. The initiative targeted the displaced individuals from Bilgo, originating from Rollo in the Center-North region, extending much-needed support during challenging times.

According to Burkina Information Agency, Ayité Delali, the aid package was prepared to benefit at least 350 individuals, including 170 children. Throughout the week, these IDPs were to receive an array of supplies comprising food, festive attire, farcloths, mats, shoes, and solar lamps, all valued at approximately one million francs. Delali emphasized that this initiative was a response to the patriotic call to action issued by the President of the Transition, Captain Ibrahim Traoré, underlining a community-driven approach to aid.

Furthermore, the aid distribution event served as a platform for the IDP beneficiaries to voice their additional needs, focusing on critical areas such as education for their children, women’s empowerment and training, and access to water resources to facilitate market gardening activities. The association’s commitment to extending its support into the following week underscores a sustained effort to alleviate the hardships faced by the IDP community in Rollo.
