Lake Chad Crisis Appeal

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

Donate byCard

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 Lake Chad Crisis Appeal will support people in areas affected and those potentially affected in the future by the crisis. In the unlikely event that we raise more money than can be reasonably and efficiently spent, any surplus funds will be used to help us prepare for and respond to other humanitarian disasters anywhere in the world.
