Video: Testimonies from women displaced by violence in northern Nigeria
The health situation in Borno State, Nigeria is critical. At least 500,000 people who are either displaced or cut off in enclaves are in urgent need of food, medical assistance, drinking water and shelter. MSF has been working in Maiduguri on a permanent basis since April 2014, focusing on paediatric and maternal health and nutrition and, on several occasions, responding to cholera epidemics that were previously under control.
Today, more than 1.2 million internally displaced people are living in Maiduguri, most of them within the host community and others in camps (two informal camps and 13 official camps).
These video testimonies come from two women affected by violence and displacement.
