Food Distribution North Nigeria - Secours Islamique France
Although largely unreported, three states in Nigeria’s north-east are experiencing one of the biggest humanitarian crises in Africa, with an estimated 13 million people in areas affected by Boko Haram violence.
Now in its seventh year, the crisis is adding to pre-existing deep poverty and chronic under-development. Up to 2.1 million people fled their homes to escape the conflict, including over 191,000 who crossed into the neighbouring countries of Cameroon, Chad and Niger.
In recent months, humanitarian workers started to gain access to areas that armed groups had previously controlled, and have been able to bring humanitarian assistance to people in urgent need.
