Germany has provided an additional 15 million euros in aid to improve the lives of people living around Lake Chad affected by the Boko Haram crisis.
This support is part of the country’s commitment to contribute to security in the region as well as infrastructure and improving the lives of communities in the region.
German Ambassador to Nigeria Birgitt Ory said the donation was part of a wider effort to help their Nigerian counterparts and that Niger, Cameroon and Chad were expected to benefit from the donation.
Ory said the aid was part of a pledge by Germany, the European Union, the Netherlands, Sweden and the United Kingdom to resettle people in the Lake Chad region as a whole.
The program is also supported by the United Nations and the African Union.
