**1. INTRODUCTION **
In The Gambia, political turmoil following the presidential elections in December 2016 led to an estimated 150,000 internally displaced people (IDP).1 A number of families in communities where ChildFund operates hosted IDPs, taking in an average of six IDPs for almost one month. The additional people strained household resources, prompting ChildFund to plan an emergency response to protect the welfare of children in affected families.
While there is room for disagreement about migration policy, the humanitarian imperative means that we must never needlessly sacrifice the survival and dignity of any vulnerable people, including migrants.
With a population of 1.9 million, the Republic of The Gambia is faced with rising food insecurity, poverty and malnutrition, despite a promising environment for improved growth, stability and partnerships.
