Nigeria: Reuniting refugee children with their families

09 August 2016

Armed conflict in northeast Nigeria and the Lake Chad region has displaced an estimated two million people. Around 150,000 people have fled to neighbouring countries while many more remain internally displaced.

The Dar Es Salam camp in the Baga Sola region of Chad is home to around 5,000 refugees. Many of them are children, and many of those children are completely alone. The ICRC works to reunite children divided and displaced by conflict back with their families. Learn more about how we're working to restore family links
