Victims Support Fund

The Presidential Committee on Victims Support Fund (PCVSF) was set up in July 2014 at the peak of the Boko Haram insurgency as a non-military response to the terror activities. The PCVSF is made up of individuals drawn from the private sector, humanitarian and development agencies, security agencies, government agencies as well as civil society and religious organisations. The Committee is chaired by General T. Y. Danjuma and has the following Terms of Reference:

  • Identify sources and ways of raising sustainable funding to support victims of Boko Haram activities
  • Develop appropriate strategies for the fund raising
  • Ascertain the persons, communities, facilities and economic assets affected by Boko Haram terror activities
  • Assess and determine the appropriate support required in each case
  • Manage, disburse and/or administer support to the victims as appropriate
  • Address related challenges as may be appropriate
  • Advise Government on other matter(s) necessary or incidental to support victims of Boko Haram terror activities.
