 In the heart of Durumi, where the scars of displacement from insurgency still linger, lies an Internally Displaced Persons camp, a haven for those who have fled their homes seeking safety. Within its confines, families struggle to meet their basic needs, grappling with unemployment and the relentless surge of inflation. In this narrative of hardship, a beacon of hope emerges – the “Drum for Positive Change Foundation,” an NGO dedicated to making a tangible difference in the lives of those affected by crisis. Recently, the foundation embarked on a mission to Durumi, bearing not just food, but also essential supplies and a promise of support.


Before delving into the events of the outreach, it’s crucial to understand the context within which it took place. Durumi’s Internally Displaced Persons camp shelters individuals and families displaced by insurgency, a stark reminder of the ongoing conflicts plaguing certain regions. Despite the efforts of the government to provide refuge, the camp’s residents face numerous challenges. Unemployment is rampant, exacerbated by inflation rates that strain already limited resources. The infrastructure within the camp is deficient, with classrooms devoid of teachers and pharmacies lacking essential medications. In the face of such adversity, the residents find themselves grappling not only with physical displacement but also with a sense of neglect and abandonment.


Against this backdrop of adversity, the Drum for Positive Change Foundation emerges as a ray of hope. Founded on the principles of compassion and solidarity, the NGO is committed to addressing the needs of vulnerable communities, particularly those affected by conflict and displacement. With a team of dedicated volunteers and the support of generous donors, the foundation channels its efforts toward tangible, sustainable change. Its mission extends beyond mere charity; it seeks to empower individuals and communities, fostering resilience and self-reliance in the face of adversity.


The visit to Internally Displaced Persons Camp Durumi marked a significant milestone in the foundation’s journey of service. Led by a team of volunteers, the NGO embarked on a mission to provide not just sustenance but also essential supplies to those in need. The focal point of the outreach was the children, who often bear the brunt of humanitarian crises.


Recognizing the importance of proper nutrition for their growth and development, the foundation distributed food packages tailored to meet their nutritional needs. The sight of smiles lighting up young faces served as a poignant reminder of the impact of collective action in alleviating suffering.

However, the foundation’s efforts did not end with the distribution of food. Recognizing the diverse needs of the camp’s residents, the NGO went a step further, addressing issues often overlooked in humanitarian aid initiatives. Adolescents, particularly girls, face unique challenges, including the lack of access to menstrual hygiene products. To address this pressing need, the foundation distributed sanitary pads, ensuring that young girls could manage their menstrual health with dignity and comfort. Additionally, recognizing the importance of hygiene and cleanliness, especially in a crowded camp environment, the NGO provided detergents and soaps to the adults, promoting good hygiene practices and preventing the spread of disease.


The impact of the foundation’s visit reverberated through the camp, eliciting gratitude and hope from its residents. The camp coordinator, a figure of authority and trust within the community, expressed heartfelt appreciation for the foundation’s gesture. In a candid conversation, they lamented the neglect faced by Internally Displaced Persons at the hands of the government, highlighting glaring deficiencies in essential services. The absence of teachers in classrooms and the scarcity of medications in pharmacies served as poignant reminders of the systemic failures perpetuating the cycle of suffering. Yet, amidst these challenges, the coordinator found solace in the solidarity extended by organizations like Drum for Positive Change Foundation, emphasizing the transformative power of collective action in effecting positive change.
