In the north-west, the situation has also worsened due to inter-community violence, banditry and natural disasters, causing frequent population displacements in the area, where very few humanitarian organizations are present.
Severely affected by conflicts, climate shocks and epidemics, the population’s needs are extensive: protection, health, water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH), food security and livelihoods (FSL), shelter.
The security situation remains volatile for NGOs and the country has also been faced with a deadly cholera epidemic, which now recurs every year.

Working with local, international and sectoral partners, our NGO delivered a full range of “WASH”, “Shelter” and “FSL” services to displaced populations and host communities. Our teams also developed a new approach to repairing shelters, based on community involvement, which increases the capabilities of participants.
Finally, the emergency team played a key role in the “Cholera” response in Borno state, by providing cholera kits, disinfecting the areas surrounding outbreaks and conducting hygiene promotion activities.
