The UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) and its partners have called on donor nations for funds to help thousands of refugees in Nigeria and Central African Republic (CAR).
The agency seeks up to the tune of $545million to cater for those who are forced to flee conflicts in the two countries.
The Refugee Response Plans (RRRP) of the two countries presented the breakdown at a recent donor briefing in Yaounde cameroon.
$198.76 million is needed for 230,000 Nigerian refugees and some 284,300 members of host communities in Niger, Chad and Cameroon.
For CAR, a sum of $345.7 million is sought for 476,300 refugees and some 289,000 people hosting them.
“These two humanitarian crises must not be forgotten. The suffering is great and the needs acute among both the displaced and host communities.” said UNHCR’s Regional Refugee coordinator for CAR and Nigeria, Liz Ahua.
Ahua expressed concern over the new cases of displacement in the North-Eastern region of Nigeria while urging African governments and international communities to make stronger commitments.
