The Lake Chad region is suffering a humanitarian crisis. Over a million of people have fled the conflict and are currently living under difficult conditions inside Nigeria. Others have moved to Niger, Chad or Cameroon and are in an equally dire situation. The International Committee of the Red Cross is appealing for extra funds so that it can help these people.

Statement by ICRC president Peter Maurer
I am deeply shocked and saddened by the loss of hundreds of lives in such tragic circumstances in the Mediterranean. These deaths of men, women and children, are an appalling reminder of the impact of worsening conflicts in Libya, Syria and other Middle Eastern and African countries in driving people to desperate decisions to meet their most basic needs for safety. Some of them are fleeing from the violence which has engulfed their countries, others are simply caught up in it along their way as they seek to escape oppressive poverty.
