Precious Water

Description

A woman cleans her face in front of her tent in a refugee camp in Niger.

Worsening conflict in Nigeria between government forces and insurgents has caused tens of thousands of people to flee to Diffa in Niger. Aid agencies estimate that 150,000 refugees have relocated there in the past two years.

Refugees gather under plastic sheeting in makeshift camps with few possessions. An estimated 2.5 million people in Niger are facing severe food shortages, and 1.3 million children are acutely malnourished.

Since January 2015, World Vision has assisted about 1,000 refugee families with household items. In one camp, the organization drilled a borehole well and is equipping a community group to manage and maintain it.
