Supporting at-risk rural populations and crisis victims in the Diffa region.

Niger :

About

Situated in the heart of the Sahel at some of the major crossroads of Africa, Niger is frequently confronted with food and pastoral crises resulting from droughts and increased grain prices (millet, sorghum, corn, and rice). Half of all Nigeriens also lack access to drinking water. Since 2012, the Diffa region in the far east of the country has been confronted with significant displacements of communities and refugees, as well as internal migration following acts of violence carried out by the Nigerien sect Boko Haram at the border between Niger and Nigeria.

In this context, Caritas International supports at-risk rural communities to enable them to be more resilient to repeated food crises, to have better access to clean drinking water, and to have access to new sources of income. We also assist crisis victims in the Diffa region and work to consolidate peace.
