Speaking on Thursday while flagging-off the NYSC intervention programme at Damare IDPs camp in Yola, the newly appointed Director-General of the scheme, Brig-Gen. Sule Kazaure, said that medical doctors, nurses, pharmacists and other medical professionals of the scheme would now be deployed to Internally Displaced Persons camps nationwide.

Kazaure said that the deployment of NYSC to the camps was part of the scheme’s contribution to government’s efforts in assisting the IDPs.

“This programme, which is designed to bring succour to the inmates in this centre, is also intended to complement government’s efforts towards provision of the welfare needs of IDPs nationwide.

“The scheme, therefore, will deploy the services of corps professionals such as medical doctors, nurses, pharmacist, etc to the centre to assist Federal Government in the provision of medical and other sundry needs of the IDPs.

“Specifically corps members will be participating in medical outreaches, environmental sanitation, educational intervention and general awareness creation on healthy living,” he said.
