Fleeing Violence: Nigerian Refugees Receive Solace And Support After A 10-Hour Boat Journey To Chad

They arrive by boat,  tired, hungry and distressed after a 10-hour journey across Lake Chad. They are mostly women and children. And they need help. WFP has been supporting refugees fleeing escalating violence in Nigeria, in need of urgent assistance. 

Overview

Chad is an arid, low-income and landlocked country suffering from chronic food insecurity. Conflict in neighbouring countries has put additional pressure on already-limited resources, and Chad now hosts an estimated 450,000 refugees, primarily from Central African Republic and Sudan.
