March 25, 2021: Chargé d’Affaires a.i. David Gilmour toured the 9th District of N’Djamena, Chad’s rebuilding efforts, underscoring the United States support of the Chad Red Cross flood relief and humanitarian efforts in Chad. USAID provided a $100,000 grant to the International Federation of the Red Cross (IFRC) enabling the Chad Red Cross to provide construction material to 150 households and non-food items assistance to 300 households. During this visit, Chargé Gilmour was escorted by Chad Red Cross acting President Khala Ahmat Senoussi, a 9th District Government of Chad official and the representative of flood victims.
The United States is proud to support Chad Red Cross relief efforts during the past twenty years, witnessing its development into an effective institution capable of assuming greater responsibility for disaster relief. The United States is the largest donor of humanitarian assistance to Chad and responds to the Chadian Government’s international appeals for drought, population displacement, epidemics, and floods.
