Dita Anggraeni

Over 10 million people across the Lake Chad Basin are in urgent need of humanitarian assistance.1 Since 2014, CERF has provided nearly $156 million for life-saving humanitarian assistance to people affected by the conflict and deepening food crisis. With the support of CERF’s rapid response and underfunded emergency funds, humanitarian partners have been providing life-saving assistance and protection for the most vulnerable people – internally displaced, returnees, refugees and host population - affected by Boko Haram and military operations.
