Four Famines: Fragility, Resilience, and the Role of International Development
Description: More than 20 million people in Yemen, Somalia, South Sudan, and Nigeria are facing famine conditions and possible starvation. It has been called the largest humanitarian crisis the world has seen in decades. Of the $4.9 billion the United Nations desperately needs to respond to these crises, only $2.5 billion has been received. Meanwhile, the humanitarian disaster is deepening, largely due to escalating conflict in each of the four countries. Humanitarian assistance and international development have different objectives and time horizons, but must work together to respond to the crisis at hand while also preventing the next one from occurring. What role does international development play in building long-term resilience? What are the linkages between conflict, fragility, and severe food insecurity? How can U.S. leadership and international development programming break the cycle of instability and famine?

Mothers Sharing Strength to Overcome Hunger: Porridge Moms in Northeast Nigeria
Description: Action Against Hunger is proud to share the inspiring story of a courageous group of mothers uprooted from their homes by the violence caused by the Boko Haram insurgency in northeast Nigeria. Action Against Hunger launched the “Porridge Moms” program in Maiduguri in northeast Nigeria's Borno State to provide vulnerable displaced women with a daily nutritious meal, as well as health education and training to prevent their at-risk children from becoming severely malnourished. The Porridge Moms program also provides these mothers with a critical peer support network, a “sisterhood” where they can help each other cope with the trauma, violence, and loss they have endured.

Profile of the 2017 Nansen Refugee Award winner
Description: The 2017 UNHCR Nansen Refugee Award winner is Zannah Mustapha, a champion for the rights of displaced children growing up amid violence in north-eastern Nigeria to get a quality education. Mustapha founded a school in 2007 in Maiduguri, the capital of Borno State and the epicentre of the Boko Haram insurgency. The school has stayed open throughout the conflict with Boko Haram, which has seen some 20,000 killed across the Lake Chad region, and millions more displaced. The school provides a free education, as well as free meals, uniforms and health care, to children affected by violence. Those orphaned by the conflict on both sides are welcomed into Mustapha’s classrooms as a sign of the reconciliation he hopes to achieve in the region. Mr. Mustapha is a true reflection of the spirit of the Nansen Refugee Award.

NORTHEAST NIGERIA | What's going on?
Description: A conflict that has been ongoing for more than eight years. More than two million people have fled their homes, with little chance of returning home any time soon. Thousands have been killed in the fighting, many more by measles, malnutrition and malaria. An unknown number of people are out of the reach of humanitarian assistance altogether. Despite the huge scale of suffering, this is a conflict that you might not be aware of. In this video, Heather Pagano, MSF humanitarian advisor, explains the humanitarian situation and ongoing conflict in northeast Nigeria. Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) is an international, independent, medical humanitarian organisation that delivers emergency aid to people affected by armed conflict, epidemics, natural disasters and exclusion from healthcare.

NIGERIA | Monitoring malnutrition on a smartphone
Description: Undertaking a house to house smartphone survey, the team referred malnourished children to MSF’s nutrition centres for medical care, and arranged follow up food distribution in neighbourhoods with a high number of cases. The survey allowed MSF access to live data, so we could monitor malnutrition and see how rates were changing over time. The good news is that rates of malnutrition have now stabalised, thanks to a massive deployment of aid, so whilst the survey has finished, our medical humanitarian programmes in Maiduguri and elsewhere in Borno State are continuing.
