Written by on March 16, 2022
The Government of Chad and the humanitarian community have inaugurated the country’s 2022 Humanitarian Response Plan to support the vulnerable populations and refugees in the country.
The Humanitarian Response Plan will prioritize food security and nutrition, health emergencies, and addresses the impacts of climate change, according to UN Spokesperson, Mr Stéphane Dujarric, briefing journalists in New York.
Dujarric said in addition to the Humanitarian Response Plan, the Cameroon Refugee Response Plan covered the humanitarian and protection needs of 60,000 new refugees who fled Cameroon to seek refuge in Chad in December 2021 as well as the communities that host them.
He said it would require 95 million dollars to strengthen the coordination and management of the new crisis and respond to the urgent needs of the newly arrived refugees.
