The UN Volunteers says it is ready to assist Nigeria to respond to the overwhelming humanitarian situation caused by the Boko Haram terrorist group in the northeast.
Chief of the Development Programming Section at United Nations Volunteers, Geoff Prewitt, made the offer following his recent travels through Nigeria, including visits to Northeast.
Geoff said “in times of crisis, the valuable role of volunteers should never be underestimated.
“Efforts by the United Nations through the Humanitarian Response Plan for Nigeria are underway to increase funding for food aid and life-saving humanitarian assistance, yet commitments from donors remain low.
