Lake Chad Crisis Appeal

Please donate now to the Lake Chad Crisis Appeal to help families in desperate need.

Years of conflict, food shortages and disease across Niger, Nigeria, Cameroon and Chad have created a devastating humanitarian crisis.

Thousands of families have been forced to flee their homes and are struggling to survive without clean water, shelter, health care and food.

Please donate now to help those in desperate need.

The number of people suffering is almost unimaginable. More than half a million children are severely malnourished. They need urgent life-saving treatment to survive.

Your donation today will help provide desperately needed shelter, food, water and medicine. Please give now.

Please note

The money raised will be used to assist the victims of the attack, their families and dependants. In the unlikely event that we raise more money than can be reasonably and efficiently spent, surplus funds will be used to respond to similar events in the UK that charity trustees consider appropriate.
