Chad Needs $510.7 Million For 3.9 Million Vulnerable People – UN

The aid will be to provide support for 3.9 million Chad citizens who are most affected by the ongoing humanitarian crisis in the country.

The Chadian government and its partners of the United Nations system on Monday, March 15, launched the country’s joint humanitarian response plan for 2022 in N’Djamena.

According to the United Nations system, almost four million persons in Chad are in vulnerable situations and need urgent humanitarian assistance. This number is out of a total of 6.1 million Chadians in need of humanitarian assistance.

The amount of money needed to render urgent assistance to the 3.9 million vulnerable Chadians, according to the UN System, is $510.9 million, to be used for education, food security, and the protection of children.

The humanitarian assistance plan launched on Monday has three main strategic objectives such as the amelioration of the physical and mental well-being of the populations affected by various crises, as well as the improvement in their living conditions.

In detail, these conditions include saving and preserving the lives and dignity of affected persons, reducing the vulnerability of affected persons through the reinforcement of their resilience, contributing towards the protection of vulnerable populations, and reinforcing their accountability towards the affected populations.

“This humanitarian response plan is the fruit of a refined analysis and a participative work between the humanitarian actors and the government for the best way of taking care of the realities on the ground,” explained Violette Kakyomya, the Resident Coordinator of the United Nations System in Chad.

“Chad has for some years in succession been facing crises and without adequate finances freed within the relevant time, the humanitarian situation risks deteriorating and limiting all perspectives of sustainable development.”
