VSF Distributes Agricultural Inputs To Farmers In Adamawa State

Victims Support Fund (VSF) on Thursday 28th June 2018 flagged-off its rain fed farming intervention in Madagali Local Government Area of Adamawa State. This intervention aims to administer appropriate support to victims of insurgency and facilitate the restoration of livelihood through economic empowerment of households in the Northeast.

The VSF agro-based intervention provides agricultural inputs which include: improved varieties of seeds, fertilizers, pesticides and sprayers. The rain-fed farming programme will improve household nutrition and also engender financial independence for victims who have returned to their communities. A total of 4000 households will receive agricultural inputs across the three most affected states of Borno Adamawa and Yobe.

VSF continues to work to restore hope to victims of insurgency through foster care programmes for orphaned children, strengthening health systems to respond to medical needs of victims requiring health care services, education and psychosocial support to affected children and the reconstruction of public buildings devastated by the insurgents.
