Saudi Kingdom pledges 10 million dollars food items for victims of insurgency

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has promised to donate food items worth 10 million US dollars to support the Federal Government’s effort at addressing the humanitarian crisis in the Northeast.

The Northeast Coordinator, National Emergency Management Agency, NEMA Mr Bashir Garga, who made this known in an interview in Maiduguri, said that the gesture was particularly aimed at addressing the food crisis and resultant malnutrition caused by the Boko Haram insurgency in the region.

He said that the agency had taken proactive steps toward addressing gaps in humanitarian services that might have been experienced due to the humanitarian actors’ suspension of such services in liberated communities.
