Following the humanitarian needs of countries of Africa’s Sahel, the European Union (EU) said it has mobilised over €191 million to aid the countries.

The amount, according to the EU, is meant for food security and the vulnerable in the Sahel.

The EU disclosed the mobilisation of the funds in a statement issued in Brussels and made available to Daily Sun in Abuja by Mr. Modestus Chukwulaka, Politics, Press and Information Section, Delegation of the European Union to the Federal Republic of Nigeria and the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS),

The EU added that in mobilising the funds, it aims at reaching more than 1.1 million people in need of emergency food assistance, while supporting treatment to over 650,000 severely malnourished children.
