Niger: our work from January to December 2022

Present in Niger since 1990, the ICRC protects and assists people affected by the consequences of armed conflict or other situations of violence, particularly in Liptako-Gourma and the Lake Chad Basin. In collaboration with the Niger Red Cross, we provide assistance by responding to the needs expressed by the populations concerned, with the aim of strengthening their resilience.
