Description

Levels of food insecurity and malnutrition in the Lake Chad basin have become alarming. The conflict that began more than seven years ago between Boko Haram and the military attempting to combat it has destroyed entire villages, roads, water sources, health centers and schools. Families have been unable to farm or buy food because of the soaring prices.

6.3 million people are running out of food and nearly half a million children under the age of five are malnourished.

People urgently need food, water, medicine, shelter and protection.
