Damaturu — The Humanitarian Network for Northern Nigeria(HNNN), in collaboration with the Women in Sahel Initiative (WISI), has embarked on environmental fumigation in local communities of Potiskum metropolis.
HNNN Coordinator Bukar Mohammed Atiyaye noted that the objective of the exercise was to eradicate malaria.
He lamented that most of the diseases thrived in communities because of unhealthy environment and urged them to keep their surroundings clean.
The CEO of Women in Sahel Initiative, Khadija Samaila Musa, said the collaboration stemmed from the fact that her organisation had previously carried out environment-related projects in the community.
She called on government agencies and individuals for support with insecticide or logistic to enable them sustain the projects.
