Donor Update - 19 September 2005
UNICEF is grateful for the generous donor support of US$ 17.4 million, which enables us to respond to the immediate and medium-term needs of children and women, particularly in the fields of nutrition, health, water and sanitation and protection. The situation in Niger remains of concern, however, and UNICEF’s appeal requirements may increase in the future in order to respond to the longer-term needs of children and women.
Niger Food Crisis - Donors Alert - 28 July 2005
Drought, combined with a locust invasion, has hit the most vulnerable areas of Niger. 3.6 million people, including 800,000 children under 5 years of age, have been made vulnerable to the current situation. Of these 800,000 children, an estimated 20% suffer from moderate wasting (160,000) and 4% suffer from severe wasting (32,000). UNICEF is working with partners to treat children with severe and moderate malnutrition and to reduce the effects of household food insecurity. The attached document reflects the UNICEF component of the UN Joint Flash Appeal to be issued to respond effectively to the crisis.
Niger Crisis Appeal - 24 May 2005
On May 19, a UN Flash Appeal was launched by OCHA for the nutritional needs of the population in Niger. Please find attached UNICEF's segment of the Flash Appeal, with a request for $1,353,000 for emergency nutritional support for children and for a food project which will support community cereal banks. 150,000 children are currently showing signs of malnutrition. The resources of the national coordinating body for Food Crisis Prevention and Mitigation Mechanism (DNPCGA), in which UNICEF is participating together with sister agencies such as WFP, FAO and UNDP, have been depleted, and funds are thus required for renewed efforts.
