Highlights from the Representative on social media
Many people were killed when #Gwoza in NE #Nigeria was attacked in June 2014. It was a heartwarming to see the town rebuilt during my visit today w/ a high-level delegation from @EUinNigeria, Chief of Borno Field Office @GeoffreyIjumba & Chief of Child Protection @KidaneMilen pic.twitter.com/WYGdDaztjJ— Mohamed M.

I saw glimpses of hope in #Gwoza, NE #Nigeria. People not only relying on humanitarian assistance, children going back to #school, and adolescent girls & boys being trained in new skills. @UNICEF_Nigeria and our partner @EUinNigeria are on the ground supporting the #recovery. pic.twitter.com/MhaS2KHSvf— Mohamed M.
