Introduction

The European Commission is one of the main donors present in Chad, one of the poorest countries in the world that faces several interconnected humanitarian crises. Food insecurity, malnutrition, recurrent epidemics, and thousands of malaria cases plague the country and directly impact the high morbidity and mortality of its children under age five. Violence in neighbouring countries has forced thousands of people to flee to Chad. EU humanitarian aid provides food, helps displaced populations and refugees, and fights epidemics.

Women and children in the West and Central Africa region remain vulnerable to a range of humanitarian crises, including lack of access to basic social services, forced displacement, drought, flooding, epidemics and acute malnutrition. Conflicts in the Central African Republic, the Democratic Republic of the Congo and the Lake Chad Basin have led to mass displacement, both internally and across borders. More than 8 million people across the region—more than half of whom are children—are displaced.1 The nutrition crisis in the Sahel continues to place the most marginalized children at risk.
