COVID-19 AND THE RISING TIDE OF HUNGER IN NIGERIA...

...sent Conscience International local teams into emergency mode in June, distributing food to 346 families in the Malali area of Kaduna City in #Malumfashi, #Katsina State.

“Many people were coming to distribution areas seeking help due to loss of employment or the impossibility of obtaining food due to the lockdowns from the Covid-19 pandemic,” explains Baker Hill, Conscience International Program Director for West Africa.  “The purpose of this distribution was to tide people over until they are again able to provide for themselves.”

The distribution efforts were successful, with no mishaps or breakdowns, and an effort was made to maintain social distancing and wearing of masks, “although this is not always paracticable in Nigeria,” Baker said. 

 “There will be a need for a repeat of this distribution before the lockdowns end in Nigeria.  It is reported that COVID cases are on the rise again in some areas,” Baker concluded.
