The United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) has donated over 5,700 relief material to the Nigerian government in response to flood-affected states in the country.
The acting UNFPA Country Representative, Eugene Konguyny, made the donation to the Minister of State for Health, Dr. Osagie Ehanire, in Abuja.
while donating the items, Mr. Konguyny said they were mainly for women and girls, especially pregnant women and lactating mothers and the items include dignity kits for pregnant women, sleeping mats in temporary locations, and traditional wrappers for women and children.
About 12 states in Nigeria have been affected by flood this year as warned by the Nigeria Hydrological Services Agency (NIHSA).
The government has declared national disaster across the four worst affected states, which include Kogi, Delta, Niger, and Anambra states.
