February 2022 - Twelve years of conflict between Islamist insurgents and government forces in northeastern Nigeria have left the region facing a desperate humanitarian crisis, characterized by mass population displacement and severe human rights abuses, including abductions, killings, and sexual violence. Destruction of infrastructure has left most of the population without access to safe water, sanitation or health care. Widespread food insecurity, worsened by the ongoing impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, has left the region on the brink of famine. Across the three conflict-affected states of Adamawa, Borno and Yobe, an estimated 8.3 million people will need humanitarian assistance in 2022. With GAC’s support, Save the Children prevents and treats acute malnutrition, improving access to water, sanitation and hygiene, and providing protection services for up to 121,869 conflict-affected internally displaced persons and host communities in Nigeria’s Borno state. Project activities include: (1) identifying and treating acute malnutrition; (2) rehabilitating water points and gender-responsive sanitation facilities and latrines; (3) providing case-management and other services to survivors of sexual and gender based-violence or those at risk; and (4) engaging with community stakeholders to improve their understanding of and response to protection risks.
