For years, the burst of terror provoked by Boko Haram has forced people in North-Eastern Nigeria to seek shelter in refugee camps and host communities. Since early 2015, a further escalation in violent attacks has terrorised above all Borno, Yobe and Adamawa states, creating a humanitarian crisis of a mammoth scale.
Humanitarian aid workers have identified around 5.6 million people caught up in the conflict who are living in conditions of food insecurity, who are exposed to the risk of epidemics and who are in desperate need of protection.
Since July 2014 COOPI has been responding to this emergency with interventions first in Bauchi state and then in Yobe, where we have distributed non-food items, food, seeds and agricultural equipment. In addition, we have organised activities to facilitate access to drinking water and improve hygiene conditions.
Despite our efforts, the situation remains extremely precarious: this is why we want to continue providing support and protection to the most vulnerable groups in Nigeria.
COOPI is the only Italian NGO present in this region.
