COOPI’s first intervention in Niger was in 2012, in response to the severe food crisis that had struck the country.
Over the years, we have supported the population by distributing ready-to-use therapeutic foods and providing healthcare. We also set up recreational play activities and psychosocial support finalised at reducing the mental harm and growth disorders that affect malnourished children and strengthening mother-child relationships.
In addition, with the outbreak of the crisis in the north-east of Nigeria and the subsequent arrival of thousands of refugees fleeing from attacks by Boko Haram, COOPI activated a series of Mobile Psychosocial Support Units in over 40 villages to support victims who flee the violence. We provided emergency psychological care and support to refugees through actions designed to help them cope with the atrocities witnessed and experienced first-handdialogue and support groups to promote solidarity and social cohesion.
Thanks to our Mobile Units, we are able to reach areas that would otherwise be inaccessible and cut off from all humanitarian support.
