King Salman humanitarian aid relief center (KS Relief) has donated a $300,000 monitoring and communication facility to the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) to cater to persons affected by the Boko Haram insurgency.
The Director General of NEMA Mustapha Habib Ahmed disclosed that the newly donated facility will go a long way to support the agency in the onerous task of giving care to persons affected by Boko Haram insurgency in Borno and Yobe states as well as victims of banditry in North West, Nigeria.
In his words, “you may recall that activities of Boko Haram insurgents and armed bandits in the two regions have resulted in a humanitarian crisis that requires coordinated efforts and the intervention of government, local and International humanitarian actors to give succor to persons in need.
“In this regard, the Federal Government of Nigeria through NEMA has consistently provided humanitarian relief to the people in the entire Nigerian federation. Yet there is always the need for additional support from partners; both local and international to enable the speedy recovery of the affected persons from the prolonged crises and other sudden onset disasters nationwide.
“There is no doubt that the current flood disaster that has affected the entire federation of Nigeria has tested the wits of emergency responders and has brought to fore the importance of international collaboration on emergency service delivery in the country.”
The director of NEMA further disclosed that the facility will aid in the promotion of early response and also facilitate the efficient management and deployment of life-saving human and material resources.
NEMA has continued to intensify its efforts toward disaster management after it commissioned multi-billion naira operational vehicles and specialized search and rescue equipment early last month to boost its asset base and enable better preparedness for saving lives.
