The European Commission has announced a support package of 143 million Euros for the early recovery and reconstruction needs in Borno State. 

A statement by the EU delegation in Nigeria says the support package will assist approximately 1.3m  people in desperate need of food aid, education, water access, sanitation and hygiene. 

Nigeria is one of four countries across the globe experiencing or at risk of famine this year, along with 
Somalia, South Sudan and Yemen. 

The statement adds that the package combines short term EU humanitarian aid with long 
term development support to help those in the affected area, which has been devastated by the terror 
campaign of Boko Haram. 

This announcement comes almost a week after acting President Yemi Osinbajo flagged off a door to door food distribution programme in Maiduguri the Borno state capital. 

Total EU support for the crisis in Nigeria's Borno state is now over 224 million Euros for 2017.
