- Advertisment -

The top United Nations on Wednesday released $13 million from a fund that supports rapid humanitarian responses to provide life-saving assistance to 250,000 people in areas of north-east Nigeria that have just become accessible.

In a news release issued by the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) the Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs and Emergency Relief Coordinator, Stephen O’Brien said the fund is to salvage the destitute in the region.
“People have experienced unspeakable suffering due to the violence perpetrated by Boko Haram. We now have better access finally, and a chance to help them,”
“The international community must take advantage of this opening to reach people with essential services and build on the CERF allocation to scale up the response,” Mr. O’Brien added
The humanitarian agency also noted that a significant number of women, girls, men and boys have suffered or witnessed terrible abuses, and the CERF funds will enable humanitarian partners to provide critical psychosocial support and protection services.
                                                                                                       
CERF funds will be used to provide food, cash for food purchase, nutritional supplements, protection and health services to the most vulnerable people in the newly accessible areas.
