So far, there are nearly half a million people (refugees, IDPs, returnees) in the three bordering countries, displaced by Boko Haram. Increased displacement is placing additional pressure on already vulnerable host communities who are also in need of food assistance. WFP is scaling up its food and nutrition assistance to over 670,000 people in Cameroon, Niger and Chad response to rising food insecurity and population displacements due to the conflict. WFP appeals for USD 16.3 million to respond to immediate and sudden needs. Lack of funding has been hampering WFP’s response.  Chad English Africa Video News Release Emergencies Refugees and IDPs General Food Distribution Thu, 17 Sep 2015 13:13:11 +0000 WFP 647898 at WFP Continues to Support Sudanese Refugees in Chad Since 2003, when millions of civilians fled their homes to seek protection from violence in Sudan, Chad has become home to more than 400,000 Sudanese refugees.
