U.N. Receives Pledges For $672M Toward Humanitarian Aid, Famine Relief In Nigeria, Lake Chad Region

The Guardian: Donors pledge $672m at Oslo summit to avert famine in Nigeria and Lake Chad
“A third of the $1.5bn in emergency funding sought by the U.N. this year to prevent a famine in Africa’s stricken Lake Chad region has been raised at a summit in Oslo. The U.S. has not yet made any new pledge of money. Aid agencies must get food to almost three million people by July to avert a famine in the region. The conditions for a largely neglected crisis have been created by drought, chronic poverty, and Islamist insurgents Boko Haram, the U.N. said on Friday…” (Quinn, 2/24).
