While search teams are still looking for the over 200 abducted students of Government Girls Secondary School, Chibok in Borno State, the United Nations Fund for Population Activities (UNFPA) has put in place, plans on how to rehabilitate the girls and their parents health and psychological wise.
UNFPA revealed this in a letter sent to Women for Peace and Justice #BringBackOurGirls campaign group, signed by the Executive Director, Dr. Babatunde Osotimehin
In the letter made available to our reporter through electronic mail by the group spokesperson, Mr. Rotimi Olawale, UNFPA said: “We will be leading a coalition of partners to among others provide psychosocial therapy to stabilise the parents of the victims and prepare them to offer the necessary assistance to their children, when they are released.
“We will also provide immediate diagnosis and treatment to the victims to ensure total health, including their sexual and reproductive health. We will initiate programmes that will encourage the girl’s re-integration to the educational system to enable them complete their education.
“Specifically in the coming days, UNFPA with a coalition of partners will build the capacity of a core team in Borno on emergency Humanitarian Response in line with United Nations guidelines and also conduct a mapping and situational analysis to provide relevant information that will inform a robust response.”
