We responded to support people with emergency shelter in Nigeria after many people were forced to flee their homes due violent attacks by Boko Haram. This work took place from 2018 to 2022.

We also responded in Nigeria after flooding in 2012.

Where is Nigeria?

Nigeria is in central Africa. Niger can be found to the north. To the east are Chad and Cameroon. On the west is Benin. The south coast of the country borders the Atlantic Ocean at the Gulf of Guinea.

Nigeria has a mostly tropical climate. It experiences a dry season and a wet season. The climate crisis has meant that the northern part of the country is more likely to experience drought. The south can be impacted by flooding. It is in the northeast of the country where Boko Haram have been the most active.
