Lake Chad: Italy allocates 6.3 million euros for emergency actions in favour of Boko Haram victims

Italy has allocated 6.3 million euros for emergency actions in the four countries of the Lake Chad Basin, namely Nigeria, Cameroun, Chad and Niger, which are facing the consequences of Boko Haram’s radical and extremist violence. The actions will be carried out by Italian civil society organisations and other non-profit stakeholders working in the four Countries.  

Actions will especially focus on the most vulnerable segments of the community, large families, displaced people, refugees, women and children prey to malnutrition, with the aim of providing them immediate support and curb the migration flows headed towards Europe.

The entire Lake Chad region has in fact become a place of extensive violence leading to the forced displacement of the population, which is very difficult to help because of their lack of access to humanitarian aid.
