“The conditions I met the internally displaced persons, when I visited their various camps were terrible. They were really terrible.

“The 2Face Foundation has, therefore, decided to enter into partnership with the UNHCR to see how we can help put smiles on the faces of these persons.

Many of the IDPs are victims of the attacks led by insurgents, Boko Haram, who are responsible for countless deaths in northern Nigeria.

They were forced to abandon their homes when the crisis grew extreme, seeking shelter in 'protected' zones managed by the Nigeria military and human relief organizations.
