Crise humanitaire au Nigéria et dans les pays du bassin du lac Tchad (Niger, Tchad et Cameroun)
Description: Les réfugiés, les rapatriés et les communautés hôtes ayant survécu à la violence et aux traumatismes après les attaques commises par les insurgés de Boko Haram ont besoin d'une aide d’urgence. Après une nouvelle année de conflits, de déplacements de populations et de souffrances dans une zone d'extrême pauvreté, de conditions climatiques rigoureuses, de perturbations dans l'activité économique et d'infrastructures limitées ou détruites, les besoins en matière de protection et d'assistance sont plus pressants que jamais. La situation étant imprévisible et sans perspectives immédiates de résolution ou de retour significatif, il est essentiel que la communauté internationale renforce son soutien financier. Il faut répondre d’urgence aux besoins humanitaires. Le HCR et ses partenaires ont besoin de fonds pour continuer l’action sur la base des progrès réalisés en 2016.

LWF Chad: Chitete – self reliance
Description: East Chad hosts several thousands of refugees who have fled war in Sudan. Many have lived in Chad more than a decade.

The project is funded by the US Bureau for population, refugees and migration (BPRM) and implemented by The Lutheran World Federation program in Chad.
