Social Transfer for Emergency Response in States affected by Insurgency and Fulani Herdsmen Conflict in Nigeria

In December 2014, Caritas Nigeria implemented an emergency response project that supported 11,060 Households in some dioceses (states) in Nigeria that were affected by the insurgency in the North Eastern part of Nigeria and the Fulani herdsmen conflict in the middle-belt.
The project provided Supplementary Rations in a one-off distribution which addressed food needs Households. The Project initially targeted 2000 families in all. But in view of the overwhelming population of internally displaced persons (IDPs) whose food needs ought to be addressed, and in order for the diocesan Caritas offices not to cause any form of disaffection amongst the IDPS, Caritas Nigeria decided to provide Supplementary Rations in a one-off distribution. 
 
Similarly, in October, 2014 Caritas Nigeria also distributed food items to families who fled their homes in Gwoza, Borno state in the wake of massive attacks on them perpetrated by the dreaded Boko Haram Islamic sect, and are now residing in a squatter camp in new Kuchingoro, behind the Games village in Area 1, Abuja.  The food items distributed enabled over 50 Households (approximately 350 individuals) on an average of seven persons per household to address their immediate food needs. These projects were supported by Caritas Internationalis (CI).
