Help thousands of displaced people with food and health
The humanitarian situation in Nigeria is desperate and the displacement crisis in the northeastern part of the country is one of the most acute in the world. Currently, close to 9 million people are in need of humanitarian assistance. Over 2 million internally displaced people need help urgently. As many as 74 percent of them live in Borno State, where Mission East is now responding with emergency aid to the most vulnerable people.
With private donations and support from The Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the aid organization can now provide emergency aid in Nigeria and thus utilize its expertise in helping hard-hit populations in crisis and conflict countries.
In Nigeria people will now receive basic food products for two months. They will also receive training in nutrition and good hygiene. This is done in cooperation with the Dutch aid organization ZOA and the local partner organization Community Health, Justice and Peace Initiative for Development (JDPH).
Mission East's expansion to include African countries was decided at an extraordinary general meeting in September 2021, when the organization adopted new and up-to-date statutes.
