NIGER: MNCG SUPPORTING RURAL AREAS AND COMMUNITIES
Multinational CIMIC Group specialists provided food kits to support the civil population of the Municipality of Tillaberi
Dara (Niger), January 16, 2023
Multinational CIMIC Group specialists have begun a large-scale food distribution from items donated by the Italian Government for the villages of Dara, Balati and Hondai in the Municipality of Tillaberi, Niger.
The MNCG team leader on the spot, Lieutenant Colonel Leonardo De Santis, said that the households are expected to have a food basket, made up of rice, corn, tomato, flour, oil and milk. Investingin rural people is a long-term solution to so many of the problems MNCG specialists face today in Africa. Hunger, poverty, youth unemployment and forced migration – all have deep roots in rural areas and all can be vastly improved through investing in small-scale agriculture and inclusive rural development.
