COVID19-Pandemic: EU and FIIAPP through A-TIPSOM Project Donated Palliatives to Shelters

July 1, 2020

As COVID-19 pandemic is putting the world under enormous strain, affecting the lives of everyone, trafficked persons are among the most affected group of people. Hence, service providers need adequate palliatives that will enhance the comfort of trafficked persons staying in shelters during this pandemic.

 

To cushion the effects of COVID19 on trafficked persons,  The Action Against Trafficking and Smuggling of Migrants in Nigeria (A-TIPSOM), funded by European Union and implemented by The International Ibero-American Foundation for Administration and Public Policies (FIIAPP), donated  Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), food items and disinfection and Hygiene products worth NGN 18,722,000 to  shelters operated by the National Agency for Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons (NAPTIP) and the Network of CSOs Against Child Trafficking, Abuse and Labour (NACTAL), including some Libya and Lebanon returnees in Nigeria.

This process had to temporarily stop due to the lockdown amid the Covid-19 Outbreak.

This donation is also part of the effort of The European Union in maintaining its humanitarian support to the most vulnerable people in Nigeria, through the A-TIPSOM Project implemented by FIIAPP.

The Action Against trafficking in Persons and Smuggling of Migrants in Nigeria (A-TIPSOM) began in 2018, through an agreement between the European Union (EU) and the Government of Nigeria, with the objective to reduce the trafficking in persons and smuggling of migrants at national, regional and international level, and between Nigeria and the European Union, with specific emphasis in women and children, working with main Nigerian agencies such as NAPTIP, Nigerian Immigration Service, Nigerian Police Force and the representative of the civil society, NACTAL.   A-TIPSOM project is tackling human trafficking and smuggling of migrants in Nigeria through the 5Ps which include Prevention, Protection, Policy, Partnership and Prosecution.
