A desperate and largely unknown humanitarian crisis is deteriorating in the Lake Chad Basin region of West Africa, forcing millions of people to flee their homes and leaving millions more in need of humanitarian assistance. Oxfam is providing life-saving support but help is urgently needed to prevent the crisis turning into a catastrophe.
The conflict that broke out in South Sudan on 15 December 2013 has left thousands dead and displaced more than one million people. Oxfam is currently supporting people affected by the conflict with clean water, sanitation and emergency food security.
Nearly 7 million people need food, water and support urgently including 1.2 million children under the age of 5.
