Responding to the needs of vulnerable people in North East Nigeria

The International Committee of the Red Cross established a sub-delegation in Yola in 2015 to respond to the consequences of the armed conflict in the North East. Since then, the sub-delegation and its offices in Mubi and Biu, continue to cater to the needs of thousands of vulnerable people in Adamawa, Gombe and South Borno.
