The United States has promised to provide $1 million in humanitarian assistance for people affected by unprecedented flooding in Nigeria.

The aid is being provided by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), and the agency says the $1 million will allow local partners on the ground to provide emergency shelter assistance, relief commodities, and hygiene kits to promote safe and healthy practices amid the ongoing cholera outbreak.

The U.S Consulate in Nigeria on Thursday, October 20 said the unusually heavy rainfall is regrettable with flooding affecting nearly 2.8 million people across the country, completely damaging or displacing millions of people.

“We are filled with grief for the flood victims who have lost so much – livelihoods, homes, and even loved ones,” said U.S. Ambassador to Nigeria, Mary Beth Leonard.
