Hadiza Aliyu Gabon, a Kannywood Actress and Founder of Hgabon Foundation has kicked off relief food distribution to Nigeria’s urban poor who are affected by the lockdown as a measure to contain the COVID-19 outbreak.
Hadiza Aliyu Gabon recently flagged off a door-to-door food distribution, which started in some areas in Kaduna state.
Speaking on the gesture, the Actress said, “We have today flagged off a Hgabon Foundation relief food distribution program to vulnerable individuals who have been affected by lockdown measures.
“The focus will be making sure the elderly, sick and pregnant women are taken into account.
“To ensure social distancing, the relief food is going to be distributed house to house; door to door.
“There will be no lining and no semblance of crowding”, she said.
Kaduna State is under lockdown as a measure to contain the spread of the disease in the state.
Currently the country has about 600 confirmed cases of COVID-19.
