Cases of Noma disease progressively rise in Nigeria

In 2006 126.000 Nigerians were affected by the Noma disease. Since then, this number has progressively raised . One of the main problems, apart from the entrenched malnutrition already discussed on this blog, is that a lot of people think Noma is an act of God, others think it’s ancestral curse or the anger of God.

This situation has lead the Speaker of the House of Representatives of Nigeria, Aminu Waziri Tambuwal, to launch a campaign against the disease together with the Paul Jegede Foundation, and sponsored by Japaul Oil and Maritime Services. To know more about this campaign the local newspaper Vanguard, is publishing detailed information.

In Worldcoo we are also worried about the Noma disease. That’s why we have the Construction of a fenced area for crops project together with Fundació Campaner NGO. In this case to eradicate Noma in Diffa, a small town in the border between Niger and Nigeria. Are you helping us?
