Cote d'Ivoire

UN agencies and their partners issued an appeal Jan. 23 for nearly USD 40 million to bring humanitarian relief to over 300,000 people in Cote d'Ivoire. The money is expected to fund 17 projects as part of the strategic humanitarian priorities identified for the West African nation for 2009, which are to protect internally displaced persons (IDPs) and improve vulnerable people's nutrition. Aid workers have focused on assisting the uprooted who are returning to their homes, especially in Cote d'Ivoire's west. They are also working to help children suffering from severe acute malnutrition. (UN News Service)
