Challenge

Kuchigoro camp in the FCT houses over 3000 people who fled from their ancestral homes from the North-Eastern part of Nigeria as a result of Boko Haram insurgency. These IDPs live in make shift camps made of materials like sheets of plastic and cardboard boxes. They lack basic things needed for survival e.g proper medical care, food, cloths and water. They rely mainly on the support they receive from religious bodies, private individuals and NGOs. They have long been abandoned by the Government.

Solution

JHF seeks to provide succour by donation of food items such as rice, beans and pasta to address the problem of hunger & malnutrition, especially in children. Also, the provision of cloths will keep the IDPs warm and give them a sense of living. Provision of portable water will reduce the outbreak of infectious diseases and proper sensitization will not only help to checkmate the spread of disease, but will also reduce sexual and gender-based violence amongst the IDPs.

Long-Term Impact

About 3000 IDP's will have an improved living condition. Crime rate in the camp will reduce drastically and several lives will be saved especially amongst children under 5 years. The participation of these persons in the political, economic and social life of the country will increase. Furthermore, the IDPs will be in a better position to make free and informed choices about return/integration back to their ancestral homes.
