Poverty and homelessness
An overview of the humanitarian situation in Niger, is an encompassment of nearly all types of hazards, putting its civilian population at continued risk, and displacing millions. The number of Niger’s internally displaced people and refugee population, each total to over 250,000.
Located in the middle of the troubled Sahel region, the crisis in Niger is one of the most urgent and protracted in Africa. Armed militia drive violence and insecurity, and climatic shocks cause soaring temperatures. A general lack of resources make it difficult to confront recurrent epidemics of COVID-19, measles, cholera and other infectious diseases.
In collaboration with local and international partners, we have provided our relief units in Niger as temporary homes for displaced families to live in safely, and infrastructure to promote improved health, protection and education. Learn more about our support.
