In the hell of Boko Haram: Africa's worst humanitarian crisis

In the hell of Boko Haram

Boko Haram’s attacks and military counter-offensives caused Africa's worst humanitarian crisis. 20 million people across the Lake Chad Basin are affected; 7 million are on the brink of famine - half a million of them are children.

In North Nigeria, the conflict has forced 1.4 million people off their land. Thousands survive in camps or makeshift shelter in communities with scant resources. Looting, destruction, murder and abductions are the wounds of war.

People have seen their homes ruined, their lives completely disrupted. Having left everything behind, they now face new dangers – hunger, malnutrition and disease. They are in urgent need of food, water, medical care, shelter and safety.
