In the spirit of love this valentine season, Award winning singer Nikki Laoye has just announced the new project from her Angel 4 Life Foundation tagged “The Angel Relief Fund”, to provide care and support for the internally displaced persons and refugees in Nigeria.
Last year, Nikki Laoye was unveiled by the government establishment – NCFRMI SouthWest zone (National Commission for Refugees, Migrants and Internally Displaced Persons) as the Celebrity Voice of Refugees – to bring to the forefront the activities of the NCFRMI as well as the plight of refugees, internally displaced persons and other persons of concern.

In line with her service as an ambassador for the commission, Nikki Laoye and her foundation have set up “The Angel Relief Fund – TARF” to further support the ongoing relief works for internally displaced persons (IDPs) and refugees within Nigeria, who have been badly hit by the present scourge of violence, terrorism and natural disasters.
Speaking about the initiative, Nikki Laoye says “It is really a sad situation in the north for our fellow brothers and sisters and we do pray for God’s help and strength to our troops to quench this invasion once and for all. In the meantime, We have to look out for our own and do what we can to soothe their pains. They are in constant need of food, water , clothing and more to survive daily. Lets spread some love this season and beyond, kindly Donate what you can and we will ensure it gets across to them”.
The Angel Relief Fund aims to raise funds for the purchase of relief materials and other amenities for onward distribution to IDP camps and Refugee shelters across Nigeria which will be supervised by Angel 4 Life Foundation and the NCFRMI Southwest office.
The NCFRMI Southwest Zonal Office, which is located in Ikoyi-Lagos, caters for incidences in the Southwest Zone of Nigeria and presently runs a Safe House in Ikorodu for Refugees and Assylum Seekers from countries such as Libya, Syria, Mali, Cote D’ivoire, Ivory Coast, Central African Republic, Sudan.
The Commisision is also in the process of setting up a Migrant and Internally Displaced Persons Resettlement Resource Centre in Lagos, which will offer lodgings, counselling, training, mentorship for their proper reintegration back into the society.
NCFRMI was established by the Federal Government on 23rd August 1989 and has several working affiliations with agencies such as the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) , ECOWAS, IOM (International Organization for Migration) and ICRC (International Committee of the Red Cross).
