Vaccination scheme helps many people who rely on their animals in the Guera region of Chad to earn a living.
In Chad, 13 out of 22 regions could be affected by this food crisis: some 2.4 million people don't have always enough to eat. In Chad, where Oxfam has been present for over 45 years, we aim to reach over 200,000 people for the current crisis with cash transfers, seed distribution, food for herds, and veterinary care.
Recent evaluations suggest 12 million people across West and Central Africa are facing a food crisis following erratic rains that have caused poor food harvests and water shortages. Oxfam is gearing up our response: we hope to reach one million people across Burkina Faso, Chad, Mali, Mauritania and Niger with humanitarian aid.
