Internally displaced women in Monguno, Nigeria

ECHO humanitarian assistance Nigeria

An ECHO-funded project providing emergency humanitarian assistance to people affected by the armed conflict in Borno State, north east Nigeria. We are addressing the urgent needs of internally displaced people, returnees and host communities.

The programme aims to support highly vulnerable communities and reach 4,000 households - approximately 30,000 people - in Konduga, in Borno State, Nigeria.

We are focusing on:

  • food security through unconditional e-cash vouchers to provide immediate food assistance
  • water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) work to ensure safe drinking water, improve sanitation facilities and hygiene practices.
