Canada supports child nutrition in Kano with $10 million

The Canadian government has promised a donation of $10 million on micronutrient initiative to assist malnourished children in Kano State.

The ENORMOUS donation was announced by the Canadian High Commissioner in Nigeria, Mr. Perry Calderwood, at a reception held after a two-day international conference on development in Africa, organised by Bayero University.

He said the project was part of Canada's developmental support on maternal and new born child health in Africa.

The project will be handled by a Canadian-based international organisation and would be extended to Bauchi, Katsina and other neighbouring states.

Let's just hope the money is judiciously spent.
