UAE inaugurates first phase of medical convoys, food aid initiative in Nigeria.

The UAE Embassy in Abuja inaugurated the first phase of the medical convoys and food aid initiative for refugees in the Nigerian capital, Abuja, and some areas in the north, within the framework of the ‘Year of Tolerance.’ The aid includes the provision of medicine, medical support and consultations, as well as food aid to widows and orphans.

The initiative will target more than 6,000 refugees in Nigeria who fled their homes due to the lack of security caused by terrorist attacks in Northern Nigeria.
