Caritas - Diffa - Niger

Djarou Ali, 45 and her daughter Hawa Babacar at a camp of displaced people in the neighbourhood of Chateau, Diffa, Niger on February 12, 2016. The camp is mixed between displaced people from Niger, Nigeria and Chad. They have fled attacks by the militant group Boko Haram on their villages and it's ongoing conflicts with the armies of each country. Caritas undertook a distribution of mosquito nets, cooking pots, sleeping covers, hygiene kits, clothes and cash transfers to the displaced. 228 households received support from Caritas among an estimated 1500 households in the vicinity of Chateau. There is still great need. There is no school system in place for the children and the housing is not adequate for many as more people arrive each day escaping hostilities.

'My husband disappeared and I expect he is dead because I have not seen him in over a year. I have support from other people in the community, those displaced and also the Nigeriens who are compassionate enough to give me something to eat or some money to support my family.'
