Reporting to: To be defined
INTERSOS has been present in Nigeria since the beginning of 2016 and has launched an intervention in the state of Borno to provide emergency housing, ensure food security to thousands of displaced families and
support the fight against malnutrition, particularly among children. The ongoing humanitarian crisis in Nigeria has its epicenter in the states of Yobe, Adamaua and Borno. Of the nearly 3 million displaced in these areas,
80% are in the state of Borno. Almost three years of occupation by the armed group Boko Haram and the subsequent military operation launched in January 2016 by the Nigerian army to bring these states under
government control, have produced a massive displacement of fleeing people and a devastating impact on the population. For nearly three years, in the areas under the control of Boko Haram, the population has had no access to any services, particularly medical care, medical supplies, and social and educational services. The instability of the area and the ongoing attacks by armed groups have blocked food production and crops,
emptying markets and leaving 4.6 million people without any food security. Malnutrition among women and children has reached extreme levels, especially among displaced persons, who fled into the forests and later
found their homes and businesses destroyed. Much of the displaced population rely on the humanitarian aid to survive.
