Help people like Kaltoumi

Kaltoumi arrived at Minawao camp with nothing but her young child in her arms. She was exhausted after a long journey from Nigeria and traumatised by the violence she’d witnessed when Boko Haram attacked her village. Nine years later she has rebuilt her life in the camp thanks to the kindness of ShelterBox supporters.

With your support we’ve been providing emergency aid for displaced people in Minawao camp since 2015. Yet more people arrive every day.

Will you help us to continue to be there for families in Cameroon and displaced people around the world?
