            In September 2017, U.N. Aid Chief Mark Lowcock said, “that the Government and humanitarians had made important progress in delivering life-saving relief to millions of people in north-east Nigeria.” He made this statement after visiting the country for two days. He did insist on continued efforts from the international community to support humanitarian aid to Nigeria.

            The area that the U.K., international donors, and West Africa Christian Mission are concerned with is the North East region. According to the Humanitarian Aid Relief Trust, “Nigeria is a country riven with inequality. 85 percent of the population survive on less than two dollars a day, and certain regions, especially the North East, are far behind the rest of the country in terms of development.” It is extremely important to have funds to support this region.

            Because of efforts like these, West Africa Christian Mission has specifically offered frontline humanitarian services in these regions and hope to continue these services by providing food and resources to maintain stability in Nigeria. These efforts will continue to provide support for Nigerians in need of aid.  36, a total of 2,184,254 Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) were identified in 447,628 households of which we reach out annually.  The number of IDPs in the region is now well above the increase by 7.8%. To gain insights into the profiles of IDPs, interviews were conducted with 5.4 percent of the identified IDP population as Borno is the most affected by conflict-related displacements in northeast Nigeria. Charity donations would relieve and save a dying soul.
