The 21st Motorized Infantry Brigade (BRIM) headquartered in Buea has donated a huge consignment of Anti-coronavirus materials and food stuff to some 80 trainees at the National Disarmament Demobilisation and Rehabilitation Committee (NDDRC), Buea. This, in a bid to guard against the COVID-19 pandemic at the Centre.
The Anti-COVID-19 complete sanitary kit comprising: taps-adapted hand washing containers, Carmel water, wooden stands, waste water collectors, cartons of soap, dozens of hand sanitizers, protective face masks, cartons of soap, floor rags. BRIM equally doled out food stuff: bags of rice, cartons of vegetable oil, soft drinks, cartons of tin fish, breakfast items, amongst others were handed to the trainees by the BRIM Commander, Colonel Eyenga Severin in the presence of the Divisional Officer for Buea, Abba Abdouraman, and the South West Regional Coordinator for the NDDRC, Fonju Njukang Bernard. Handing over the gifts to the visibly happy trainees, Col Eyenga told them that it was the desire of the military to protect them against the killer virus because the trainees equally constitute an important component of the nation.
Speaking during the event, both the Divisional Officer for Buea and NDDRC Regional Coordinator hailed the military for their good gesture and the ex-separatist fighters to have heeded the Head of State’s plea and dropped their arms. This, in the hope that the ex-fighters will call on others still in the bushes to do same and join any of the Rehabilitation Centres in Bamenda or Buea. The songs of joy that rented the air were ample proof of the trainees’ gratitude to the BRIM for such a wonderful gesture.
