Challenge

The 3-years running Anglophone crisis, now an armed conflict between government forces and separatist fighters has seen many homes burnt down in over 200 villages, besides much killings. This has led to serious internal displacement to mainly urban areas. The IDPs lack and need everything, including clothing. While well-wishers provide mainly food and bedding items as humanitarian aid to the IDPs, their clothing needs are generally overlooked. This project is to fill that gap of human need.

Solution

This project addresses a rather overlooked need of the IDPs, most of who escaped their burning homes with just what was worn - virtually naked. It's a structured form of an informally applied and slightly ongoing strategy of humanitarian support during the 3 years old crisis.

Long-Term Impact

The potential long term impacts of the project include: Provision of clothing solutions Prevention of health problems from lack of adequate clothing, like pneumonia. An operational centre where needy IDPs can come to solve clothing needs. Run a project that can be replicated in other localities for the same humanitarian goal. Help some IDPs to keep aside money that could have been used for clothing instead to use for the reconstruction/refurbishment of their destroyed/abandoned homes.
