A major humanitarian crisis continues to grip Africa’s Lake Chad basin, where violence and destruction have caused huge population displacements, left hundreds of thousands of children trapped behind conflict lines and led to a dramatic increase in malnutrition. Boko Haram’s attacks and military operations have displaced 2.4 million people across north-eastern Nigeria, Cameroon’s Far North, south-east Niger and western Chad.
