 United Nations Raises Concern Over Increasing Number Of Displaced Nigerians

United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNCHR) has said the rising violence and armed attacks in parts of the Country was displacing more Nigerians.

The Agency said it is struggling to respond adequately to the growing humanitarian needs arising from the displacements.

The UNCHR however lamented that it was chronically underfunded.

Speaking at the formal launch of the Zakat Fund in Abuja, the UNHCR representative in Nigeria, Ms Chansa Kapaya, stated that the Agency has received only 10 per cent of the 96.4 Million Dollars it needs in 2021.

She said the Private Sector, including the Citizens, Companies and Foundations in Nigeria, have a crucial role to play in assisting vulnerable internally displaced families.
