US bemoans global response to Boko Haram

27 May 2016, 18:14

Abuja - Thousands of people affected by the Boko Haram crisis in the Northeast are set to receive psychological support following a partnership between the French Embassy in Abuja and the International Office of Migration.

They have signed an agreement for a nine-month project to support to conflict-affected people in the two states most affected by displacement- Adamawa and Borno.

It also is aimed at preventing sexual and gender-based violence through the development of practices that promote gender equality, respect and tolerance of gender diversity in displacement camps and host communities.

The psychosocial support project will target at least 25 State Emergency Management Agency (SEMA), National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) camp managers and 10 200 internally displaced people (IDPs) living in camps and host communities.

Among those to benefit are 6 000 women, 3 000 children and 1 000 men.

IOM Nigeria Chief of Mission, Enira Krdzalic, thanked France for its contribution but highlighted the huge humanitarian challenge in the Northeast.

“In addition to psychosocial assistance, IOM also needs to provide shelter and non-food relief items,” she said.

IOM’s 2016 humanitarian programmes in the Lake Chad region now face a US$
25 million funding gap.
