Poverty and homelessness
Ongoing challenges in Burkina Faso have caused one of the fastest-growing displacement crises in the world. Burkina Faso has been subject to a myriad of emergencies in recent years: poverty and inequality, food insecurity, changing climate, and widespread conflict that has put the civilian population in the line of armed conflict.
Over 1 million Burkinabe have been forced to flee, outside of the danger zones within the country, or across the border where they face continued challenges in the troubled Sahel region.
In collaboration with local and international partners, we have provided our relief units in Burkina Faso as temporary homes for displaced families to live in safely. Learn more about our support.
