UN Sets Aside $13.4m For Humanitarian Efforts In North-East

The United Nations (UN) has donated $13.4 million aid to the North-East for Humanitarian Efforts.

The United Nations has disclosed that it has allocated the sum of $13.4 million to Humanitarian efforts in the North-East, targeting one million people.
The United Nations Humanitarian Coordinator, Mr Edward Kallon made this known yesterday in MaiduguriBorno state.
Kallon gave details of how the funds are meant to be expended, explaining that the about N4.1 billion emergency fund was earmarked for the assistance of vulnerable children, women and men from the crisis-hit region who are in dire need of humanitarian assistance.
The UN Official noted that the North-East is one of the worst hit crisis regions in the world, with 8.5 million people who are in ‘dire need of life-saving aid.’
Mr Kallon said: “The worst affected states in the northeast include Borno State, which is at the centre of the violence, as well as Adamawa and Yobe.“We are targeting a total of 950,000 people with the life-saving aids before they return to their respective communities.”

Kallon hoped that the Nigeria Humanitarian Fund (NHF) allocation would tackle these sympathetic situations by financing 24 projects in the areas of protection, nutrition, water and sanitation.

Other sectors where the UN aid is expected to trickle to are: health, education, shelter and non-food items, as well as rapid response and early recovery in the liberated communities.
