United Nations humanitarian chief, Stephen
O’Brien, has released US$13 million from the
Central Emergency Response Fund (CERF) to
provide life-saving assistance to 250,000
people in areas of north-east Nigeria that have
just become accessible.
According to a statement by O’Brien which was
released today June 27th, the destruction of
crops and looting of livestock have left many
people unable to support their families. More
than 50,000 people need seeds and tools for
the upcoming planting season and CERF
funding will help them to rebuild their
livelihoods. A significant number of women
and girls, and also men and boys, have
suffered or witnessed terrible abuses; CERF
funds will enable humanitarian partners to
provide critical psychosocial support and
protection services.
“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’ UN
Humanitarian chief said in a statement
