OFFICIALS at the Muntada Aid charity say it is closely monitoring the ongoing political developments in Niger.
As of today, our ongoing humanitarian programmes will continue delivering assistance to those in need.
“We are constantly in touch with our team in Niamey and are monitoring the situation,” said Naif Sheikh, CEO of Muntada Aid.
Muntada Aid runs health, food, livelihoods and clean drinking water programmes in the country’s capital, southeast and northeast regions.
“Our aim remains of delivering vital assistance to those who depend on our services in the country. Most of the projects are being delivered by our amazing local team, however, we have a. planned cataracts mission in October which we deliver in partnership with the local government, doctors and our London team. We are aiming to carry out over 800 eye surgeries during this deployment and as of now, we are not changing any dates. We will also continue our ongoing work on five solar-powered water stations in the region of Zinder,” said Sheikh.
