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.
Since 2007, Oxfam and our partner Hijra have collaborated to provide support for Somali families in need through cash programming.
We have been working with Hijra as partners since 2007 to provide livelihood support to people in Mogadishu. This work to help the people of Somalia continues. Mulki, a former national women's basketball player has been a beneficiary.
