People Living "In Sheer Terror" Around Lake Chad

24 November 2015

The Lake Chad region is beset by violence, as attacks by Boko Haram, also known as the Islamic State’s West Africa Province (ISWAP) group, continue unabated, driving huge numbers of people from their homes.

Government military operations in response are also contributing to the mass displacement across the region. To date, more than 2.5 million people have been rendered homeless by violence, fighting, and terror in Nigeria, Cameroon, Chad, and Niger. Doctors Without Borders (MSF) is scaling up its medical and humanitarian response in the four countries.
