The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) is providing nearly $ 104 million in additional humanitarian aid to respond to the ongoing crisis in Nigeria, which puts an estimated 8.7 million people at risk.

This additional assistance will provide much-needed support to the communities, including through programs for nutrition, health, nutrition, shelter, shelter, water, sanitation and hygiene, and humanitarian coordination. Since 2015, violence and insecurity have driven people from their homes and exacerbated humanitarian needs in northern Nigeria. The COVID-19 pandemic has further impacted food insecurity, raised protection concerns including the risk of gender-based violence, and restricted access to basic needs such as safe drinking water, food and shelter.

The United States is the largest single humanitarian aid donor in Nigeria after donating nearly $ 505 million in fiscal 2020 and 2021. The US remains committed to helping those affected by this conflict and will continue to provide vital support to the people of Nigeria. The US is calling on other donors to do the same by providing lifesaving aid to vulnerable Nigerians and the communities in which they live.
