Feeding 4,400 families in crisis

 

We’re supporting the International Committee of the Red Cross with their response to the ongoing food crisis in Nigeria and neighboring Chad, Cameroon and Niger. In this region many people are facing starvation, malnutrition and hunger, having been forced to flee their homes to escape the fighting between government forces and armed groups. Our donation can feed 4,400 vulnerable families for one month.

"Some 2.6 million people have been driven from their homes and more than 6 million are caught up in a daily struggle to put food on the table”
