Hope and Community Support for IDPS

Help us provide food, water and shelter to children and families fleeing armed conflict!

Ongoing terrorist attacks have displaced over two million people in Nigeria. We have launched a Nigeria IDP Crisis Appeal to reach children and families in desperate need of food, water and shelter.

Violent attacks by terrorist group Boko Haram have affected millions of people. The scale of the Nigeria crisis is widespread and hundreds of people have lost their lives. Yet media recognition has been slow. We need to act fast.

Our director, Counsellor Funmi Ademilua, recently witnessed Nigeria’s situation first hand. She was speechless because she saw children and families clinging to life in utterly desperate situations.’

How we are helping

We are supporting people in north-east Nigeria mainly in Gurku camp in Nasarawa. Nearly 80% of displaced people live with families who offer them shelter. We are one of few humanitarian organisations giving life-saving support to both displaced people and these host families.

Deborah's story

Deborah stands with her only surviving son after she was rescued from Boko Haram’s camp in 2016.

She told us: ‘They killed my first husband and three kids before abducting me.

The man I was forced to marry gave me 2 kids before I was rescued.

Unfortunately, one of the kids died of malnutrition when I was running through the forest.

People like Deborah are struggling to support theirselves and their families after enduring so much ordeal. Please give what you can to our HACS4IDPS Appeal.
