In response to the escalating hunger crisis in Nigeria, the Nigerian Red Cross Society (NRCS) has escalated its efforts to assist vulnerable families across affected states.

Already, approximately 5,000 households have received crucial cash support from the NRCS, addressing urgent needs such as food, medicine, shelter, and income-generating activities.The most vulnerable groups, including children, women, and the elderly, bear the brunt of the crisis, with over 26 million Nigerians uncertain about their next meal. Tragically, thousands of children suffer from severe malnutrition, leading to health complications and, in many heartbreaking cases, death.

Despite reaching households in seven states, the NRCS acknowledges the pressing need for expanded operations. The organization is extending its assistance to cover 11 states where acute hunger is on the rise.

The NRCS remains committed to providing relief to communities grappling with food insecurity, but the magnitude of the crisis necessitates collaborative efforts.
