Fleeing Boko Haram

A girl in a shelter at a camp of displaced people in the neighbourhood of Chateau, Diffa, Niger on February 12, 2016. The girls family of four generations fled their village in Nigeria which was threatened of being attacked by Boko Haram. Having lost everything they have no intention of returning. 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.
