UNICEF Cameroon Humanitarian Situation Report March-April 2016

Situation Report
Originally published



  • Within the Lake Chad Basin crisis, Cameroon is the second country most affected by displacement after Nigeria. In the last month an increase of 20,000 IDPs in the Far North has been reported bringing the number to 190,591 people.

  • Since the beginning of 2016, 1,361 refugee children under 5 and 9,952 Cameroonian children <5 with SAM have been admitted to therapeutic care.

  • 505 children (out of 4,650 expected children) unaccompanied and separated as a result of the CAR refugee crisis and the Nigeria crisis have been either placed in interim care and/or are receiving appropriate follow-up through UNICEF support.

  • The funding situation remains worrisome and is hampering the implementation of lifesaving activities: Child protection, education, WASH and health remain the most underfunded sectors and globally, only 5% of UNICEF appeal has been funded.
