    Situation Background

    The violent conflict in North-East Nigeria prompted by Boko Haram has led to widespread displacement, violations of international humanitarian and human rights law, protection risks and a growing humanitarian crisis. Now entering its seventh year, the crisis shows no sign of abating.

     

    Since the start of the conflict in 2013, more than 20,000 people have been killed, and over 2,000 women and girls have been abducted. 2.5 million People have fled their homes, of whom 2.2 million are internally displaced, and 177,000 are seeking refuge in the neighboring countries of Cameroon, Chad and Niger. Since 1 August 2015, over 20,000 Nigerian refugees have been returned by the Cameroonian authorities, under circumstances falling short of international standards, 7 million people are in need of emergency, life-saving assistance in the four worst-affected states in the North-East, Adamawa, Borno, Gombe and Yobe, of which an estimated 3 million are caught up in insecure and inaccessible areas.

     

    92 per cent of internally displaced people are seeking refuge among host communities, where resources and basic services are being exhausted, leading to risky livelihood strategies amongst displaced and hosting communities alike. Escaping from attacks in rural areas, IDPs are taking shelter in the relative safety of urban centres, causing overcrowding in already-inadequate living conditions and putting resources and basic services under huge strain. Maiduguri, the capital of Borno State, has seen its population more than double with the influx of people displaced from other areas of the state.

     

    The crisis is affecting 3.8 million children, many of whom have been subject to violations including forced recruitment into Boko Haram, and being used as suicide bombers. Women and girls have been trafficked, raped, abducted and forcibly married.

     

    3.9 million People in the North-East are food insecure, and 2.5 million are malnourished, especially children and pregnant and lactating women. 1 million children are in need of emergency education. With the ongoing disruption to basic services like health care, clean water and sanitation, susceptibility to disease is high, like the cholera outbreak in September 2015 that infected over 1,000 people in IDP camps and surrounding communities in Maiduguri.

    An estimated 262,324 people have returned to places of origin in northern Adamawa to find their communities devastated, houses and public infrastructure destroyed, and the security situation still fragile.

     

    The North-East of Nigeria has a long history of marginalization and chronic under-development, and has a higher rate of poverty, illiteracy and youth unemployment than the rest of the country. Long-standing environmental degradation has contributed to eroding livelihoods for farmers in the North-East and fishermen in the Lac region. The Boko Haram conflict has exacerbated this pre-existing situation, and has caused displacement and human suffering on a massive scale.

     

    The Government is recapturing territory from Boko Haram, but the security situation in the North-East is expected to remain fragile. Over 80 per cent of Borno State is considered high or very high risk for international humanitarian actors to access, constraining access to vulnerable communities. As the security situation changes new areas become accessible and new dimensions of need emerge, for people reached for the first time, those in ongoing displacement or on the move, and those returning to areas of origin.

    Borno State remains the epicentre of the current conflict and the situation continues to be extremely volatile and tense.  Random attacks occur regularly, mostly targeting civilians. “Boko Haram attacked our village at night, around 10 pm,” recalls Fatima, 45 years old. “Armed men entered the houses and burnt them down. Many people were killed. My sister was kidnapped, and I haven’t heard from her since. We fled into the forest and walked for 24 hours until we found a road and transport to Maiduguri.

     

    Hundreds of thousands displaced persons today live in Maiduguri, Borno State’s capital, and more arrive every day. The majority is supported by local communities, while around 100,000 IDPs are gathered in 22 camps around the city. “There are twelve of us living in a tent, with no other choice,” tells Aisha, a 55 year-old displaced women at the Federal Training Centre (FTC) camp. “The canvas is torn and inside it is full of dust and insects. Everything gets wet when it rains.

     

    IIYL has just opened one primary health care clinic, covering around 35,000 people. The organization also runs a 72-bed hospital in Maimusari, which includes a 12-bed maternity unit and 60 beds for paediatrics, nutrition and intensive care. Regular donations are also made to local hospitals in order for them to deal with mass casualties following bomb attacks

    Current Humanitarian Response and Priority Needs

    There are very few humanitarian actors responding to the needs of the population affected and displaced by the ongoing conflict in North-East Nigeria. The Government’s response targets only government camps (10% of the IDPs1), while the assistance being provided to IDPs staying in host communities and informal settlements remains largely incomplete2. Given funding and access limitations, INGOs are providing assistance in certain sectors, but not able to neither reach all IDPs nor cover all needs. Most of the IDPs rely on their own limited resources, on the charity of private individuals and on harmful coping mechanisms to rent a place and feed them every day

    Some communities that include very vulnerable individuals (women, children, elderly and people with disabilities), who are or were formerly under the control of Boko Haram in remote areas, are still inaccessible and remain untouched by humanitarian assistance, although in dire need of help. More secure and stable conditions are required for humanitarian actors to deploy assistance in these areas in a demilitarized context

     

    Security incidents continue throughout the North East, specifically in Borno, Adamawa, Yobe and Gombe States. Since the end of May 2015 more than 100 people have been killed in gun attacks and suicide blasts by suspected Boko Haram members, resorting to terrorist attacks targeting public places or gatherings

    Food Security and Malnutrition

     

    In all affected states, IDPs identify food as their most pressing need. In at least 90% of IDP households in Adamawa State, food was universally cited as an urgent priority. More than 44% of respondents said they had just one week’s worth of food remaining, and less than 20% had received food aid. IDPs request food assistance for their livelihood support.

     

    Between 3.5 and 4 million people will face difficulty securing adequate food supplies in June 2016 with food insecurity peaking in July, particularly as the vast majority of IDPs were unable to prepare and cultivate the land for this current rainy season. This means that food assistance will be necessary until the next harvest in October 2016, while complementary low-season farming will need to be strongly encouraged and supported. This inability to meet minimum food requirements is expected to result in increased levels of acute malnutrition among the worst affected households.

    Protection and Education

     

    Women report facing various risks, especially around the camps and at night, while having no safe spaces to discuss and address the risks of sexual violence, including confidential services for victims of sexual abuse. One of the reasons stated for not being willing to talk about such risks or abuses was: "we cannot say anything bad about this community. They will think we are ungrateful. Even if we are beaten, we will be seen as ungrateful

    The conflict has resulted in the separation of children from their parents or usual care givers. 85% of the communities in Adamawa report separated children among them, with demonstrated underestimation of their numbers by the communities.

     

    The conflict is reported to have prompted a change in children’s behaviour, with all communities finding children more sad and worried. Girls are reported to develop anti-social behavior and engaging in unequal and potentially exploitative sexual activity, while boys are described as committing more crimes and being aggressive

     

    The majority of IDP households with children of school age in Adamawa are unable to send their children to school, with over 70% citing lack of money as the obstacle to their doing so. Focus groups discussions with young boys and girls revealed that their major area of concern was their education, considered an entry-door to livelihood opportunities. Some had registered for their final year exams but feared they would be unable to take them

    Shelter and Non-Food Items (NFIs)

     

    IDPs are often settled in unfinished or communal buildings, which the majority of then have to rent. Others build temporary shelter with wood and other natural materials. Shelter is generally assessed as in very poor condition, frequently lacking floors, window fittings, ceilings and securable doors, which constitute a safety issue.

     

    Only 10% in some informal settlements in Adamawa would have received clothing or other non-food items, including shelter materials. Most IDPs lack basic household items such as mattresses, blankets, and cooking pots. Soap and hygienic materials are also extremely limited, with almost no reported mosquito nets.

    Health and Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH)

    Malaria, diarrhea, cough/cold/fever, measles, pregnancy related issues and malnutrition are among the reported health challenges for IDPs in Adamawa, due to lack of mosquito nets, poor excreta disposal, poor hygiene practices and congestion in the IDP settlements. More than 90% of households surveyed reported being affected by malaria.

     

    In Maiduguri, more than 50% of households report that they do not have latrines and the percentage of IDPs having access to potable water ranges from 8% to 44% depending on the settlement.

     

    In Yobe, only 43% of IDPs have access to an improved source of water.

    Humanitarian Need

    Humanitarian needs are numerous for the internally displaced persons (new arrivals), as for the host communities, whose resources are limited. The living conditions in host villages are very poor. The most urgent needs identified so far are food, shelter and non-food items (blankets, mattresses, soap, drinking and water fetching buckets sleeping mats, kitchen utensils etc.).

    According to humanitarian needs assessment conducted by International Islamic Youth League, the majority of the internally displaced persons are women and children given that many men were killed or separated from their families during the attacks or during their displacement.

    On 7 June 2016, during a meeting organised by the Prime Minister with humanitarian partners, the Government of Nigeria requested the support of the international NGOs and humanitarian community to assist people fleeing Nigeria internally displaced persons and host communities. During this meeting, the Government expressed desire to open a camp in Adamawa, Borno, Gombe and Yobe to facilitate the provision of assistance and ensure the security of internally displaced persons arriving, whilst UNHCR, UNICEF, UNOCHA International Islamic Youth League and other Humanitarian Aid Agencies complement government’s effort  

    Since the year 2014 the International Islamic Youth League in collaboration with the Chadian Government and UNHCR has directed much effort towards the alleviation of the plight of refugees in Chad.

    Given the increase in the Boko Haram’s attacks in Nigeria, there is a risk of additional population movements to northern region and of a worsening humanitarian situation. Initial forecasts for 2016 (according to the 2016 Humanitarian Needs Overview in northern Nigeria), which foresaw the arrival of 147,000 newly Nigerian Internally displaced persons in the northern region, have already been exceeded.

    The International Islamic Youth League is now increasing efforts to access affected areas which remains a challenge, given that people are staying on several areas in the northern region, some of which can only be reached by boat, and to cope with the weather conditions that limit the possibilities of movement of humanitarian actors.

     

    Main Project Activities

    This project will seek to execute the following activities-

    • Registration and documentation of Internally displaced persons

    • Identify special cases of the victims

    • Distribute humanitarian relief items

    • Post distribution monitoring: future plans to address the problem issues and the situations of victims

    • Evaluation and Reporting

    • International Islamic Youth League (IIYL) will procure and provide from the project budget the following

      Food Commodities,

      3,750 bags of rice (25kg each), 3,750 rubber containers vegetable oil (10 liters each), 324 bags (50 kg each) of sugar, 651 bags (50 Kg each) of flour, 360 bags (18 kg each) of salt to 1,085 vulnerable groups including pregnant women, lactating mothers and children.

      Nonfood Items,

      7,500 sets of Kitchen sets, 11,250 pieces of Blankets, 11,250 pieces of Sleeping Mats, 7,500 Mosquito Nets, 7,500 of 34cm Buckets, 7,500 Plastic Drinking Buckets, 7,500 and 7,500 Kerosene Lamps

    •  At the end of distribution of every of the Items (Food and Non Food) report will be submitted to Donor Organization attached with beneficiary lists.

      This action will increase health and nutrition for the most vulnerable groups and contribute to food availability till proper measures are put in place to address the plight of target beneficiaries.

      Furthermore, fund raising and advocacy activities will continue for the enhancement of low wellbeing to high wellbeing of vulnerable groups; including soliciting more funds for the provision of more non-food items from time to time as and when the need may arise, safe drinking water, medical supplies and community services assistance.

      Overarching Project Goal

      Ultimately this project seeks to ensure that most vulnerable among the Nigerian Internally displaced persons have access to humanitarian relief, safer, nutritious food and non-food items. It also maintains healthier active life, whereby there is an increase availability of food and non-food items to address their basic household and community’s basic needs.

      By the end of the project duration, the following results shall emerge:-

    • Increased number of meals consumed by targeted Internally displaced persons Households

    • Reduced rationing of food at mealtimes by targeted Households

    • Reduced the possibility of beneficiaries embarking on certain inhuman activities, such as street begging or child labor in the name of striving for food by targeted households

    • Reduced Migration in search of income or food to buy for targeted households

    • Reduced the tendency of increase in prices of food in the market.

    • Increased availability of food commodities at beneficiary households

      By the end of the project duration, the target beneficiaries would be opportune to access Monthly Relief food Distribution for life sustenance

      Remarks:

      The result of a general needs assessment conducted in target communities by International Islamic Youth League reveals that there is a significant presence of people among the displaced persons that fall under vulnerable category. This project will target this vulnerable category of the internally displaced persons.

      As such, 20% of the beneficiaries are aged men and women (above 60 year of ages), 15 % are lactating mothers, 10 % are pregnant women, 15% are unaccompanied Children and 40% are accompanied children.

    Situation Background

    The violent conflict in North-East Nigeria prompted by Boko Haram has led to widespread displacement, violations of international humanitarian and human rights law, protection risks and a growing humanitarian crisis. Now entering its seventh year, the crisis shows no sign of abating.

     

    Since the start of the conflict in 2013, more than 20,000 people have been killed, and over 2,000 women and girls have been abducted. 2.5 million People have fled their homes, of whom 2.2 million are internally displaced, and 177,000 are seeking refuge in the neighboring countries of Cameroon, Chad and Niger. Since 1 August 2015, over 20,000 Nigerian refugees have been returned by the Cameroonian authorities, under circumstances falling short of international standards, 7 million people are in need of emergency, life-saving assistance in the four worst-affected states in the North-East, Adamawa, Borno, Gombe and Yobe, of which an estimated 3 million are caught up in insecure and inaccessible areas.

     

    92 per cent of internally displaced people are seeking refuge among host communities, where resources and basic services are being exhausted, leading to risky livelihood strategies amongst displaced and hosting communities alike. Escaping from attacks in rural areas, IDPs are taking shelter in the relative safety of urban centres, causing overcrowding in already-inadequate living conditions and putting resources and basic services under huge strain. Maiduguri, the capital of Borno State, has seen its population more than double with the influx of people displaced from other areas of the state.

     

    The crisis is affecting 3.8 million children, many of whom have been subject to violations including forced recruitment into Boko Haram, and being used as suicide bombers. Women and girls have been trafficked, raped, abducted and forcibly married.

     

    3.9 million People in the North-East are food insecure, and 2.5 million are malnourished, especially children and pregnant and lactating women. 1 million children are in need of emergency education. With the ongoing disruption to basic services like health care, clean water and sanitation, susceptibility to disease is high, like the cholera outbreak in September 2015 that infected over 1,000 people in IDP camps and surrounding communities in Maiduguri.

    An estimated 262,324 people have returned to places of origin in northern Adamawa to find their communities devastated, houses and public infrastructure destroyed, and the security situation still fragile.

     

    The North-East of Nigeria has a long history of marginalization and chronic under-development, and has a higher rate of poverty, illiteracy and youth unemployment than the rest of the country. Long-standing environmental degradation has contributed to eroding livelihoods for farmers in the North-East and fishermen in the Lac region. The Boko Haram conflict has exacerbated this pre-existing situation, and has caused displacement and human suffering on a massive scale.

     

    The Government is recapturing territory from Boko Haram, but the security situation in the North-East is expected to remain fragile. Over 80 per cent of Borno State is considered high or very high risk for international humanitarian actors to access, constraining access to vulnerable communities. As the security situation changes new areas become accessible and new dimensions of need emerge, for people reached for the first time, those in ongoing displacement or on the move, and those returning to areas of origin.

    Borno State remains the epicentre of the current conflict and the situation continues to be extremely volatile and tense.  Random attacks occur regularly, mostly targeting civilians. “Boko Haram attacked our village at night, around 10 pm,” recalls Fatima, 45 years old. “Armed men entered the houses and burnt them down. Many people were killed. My sister was kidnapped, and I haven’t heard from her since. We fled into the forest and walked for 24 hours until we found a road and transport to Maiduguri.

     

    Hundreds of thousands displaced persons today live in Maiduguri, Borno State’s capital, and more arrive every day. The majority is supported by local communities, while around 100,000 IDPs are gathered in 22 camps around the city. “There are twelve of us living in a tent, with no other choice,” tells Aisha, a 55 year-old displaced women at the Federal Training Centre (FTC) camp. “The canvas is torn and inside it is full of dust and insects. Everything gets wet when it rains.

     

    IIYL has just opened one primary health care clinic, covering around 35,000 people. The organization also runs a 72-bed hospital in Maimusari, which includes a 12-bed maternity unit and 60 beds for paediatrics, nutrition and intensive care. Regular donations are also made to local hospitals in order for them to deal with mass casualties following bomb attacks

    Current Humanitarian Response and Priority Needs

    There are very few humanitarian actors responding to the needs of the population affected and displaced by the ongoing conflict in North-East Nigeria. The Government’s response targets only government camps (10% of the IDPs1), while the assistance being provided to IDPs staying in host communities and informal settlements remains largely incomplete2. Given funding and access limitations, INGOs are providing assistance in certain sectors, but not able to neither reach all IDPs nor cover all needs. Most of the IDPs rely on their own limited resources, on the charity of private individuals and on harmful coping mechanisms to rent a place and feed them every day

    Some communities that include very vulnerable individuals (women, children, elderly and people with disabilities), who are or were formerly under the control of Boko Haram in remote areas, are still inaccessible and remain untouched by humanitarian assistance, although in dire need of help. More secure and stable conditions are required for humanitarian actors to deploy assistance in these areas in a demilitarized context

     

    Security incidents continue throughout the North East, specifically in Borno, Adamawa, Yobe and Gombe States. Since the end of May 2015 more than 100 people have been killed in gun attacks and suicide blasts by suspected Boko Haram members, resorting to terrorist attacks targeting public places or gatherings

    Food Security and Malnutrition

     

    In all affected states, IDPs identify food as their most pressing need. In at least 90% of IDP households in Adamawa State, food was universally cited as an urgent priority. More than 44% of respondents said they had just one week’s worth of food remaining, and less than 20% had received food aid. IDPs request food assistance for their livelihood support.

     

    Between 3.5 and 4 million people will face difficulty securing adequate food supplies in June 2016 with food insecurity peaking in July, particularly as the vast majority of IDPs were unable to prepare and cultivate the land for this current rainy season. This means that food assistance will be necessary until the next harvest in October 2016, while complementary low-season farming will need to be strongly encouraged and supported. This inability to meet minimum food requirements is expected to result in increased levels of acute malnutrition among the worst affected households.

    Protection and Education

     

    Women report facing various risks, especially around the camps and at night, while having no safe spaces to discuss and address the risks of sexual violence, including confidential services for victims of sexual abuse. One of the reasons stated for not being willing to talk about such risks or abuses was: "we cannot say anything bad about this community. They will think we are ungrateful. Even if we are beaten, we will be seen as ungrateful

    The conflict has resulted in the separation of children from their parents or usual care givers. 85% of the communities in Adamawa report separated children among them, with demonstrated underestimation of their numbers by the communities.

     

    The conflict is reported to have prompted a change in children’s behaviour, with all communities finding children more sad and worried. Girls are reported to develop anti-social behavior and engaging in unequal and potentially exploitative sexual activity, while boys are described as committing more crimes and being aggressive

     

    The majority of IDP households with children of school age in Adamawa are unable to send their children to school, with over 70% citing lack of money as the obstacle to their doing so. Focus groups discussions with young boys and girls revealed that their major area of concern was their education, considered an entry-door to livelihood opportunities. Some had registered for their final year exams but feared they would be unable to take them

    Shelter and Non-Food Items (NFIs)

     

    IDPs are often settled in unfinished or communal buildings, which the majority of then have to rent. Others build temporary shelter with wood and other natural materials. Shelter is generally assessed as in very poor condition, frequently lacking floors, window fittings, ceilings and securable doors, which constitute a safety issue.

     

    Only 10% in some informal settlements in Adamawa would have received clothing or other non-food items, including shelter materials. Most IDPs lack basic household items such as mattresses, blankets, and cooking pots. Soap and hygienic materials are also extremely limited, with almost no reported mosquito nets.

    Health and Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH)

    Malaria, diarrhea, cough/cold/fever, measles, pregnancy related issues and malnutrition are among the reported health challenges for IDPs in Adamawa, due to lack of mosquito nets, poor excreta disposal, poor hygiene practices and congestion in the IDP settlements. More than 90% of households surveyed reported being affected by malaria.

     

    In Maiduguri, more than 50% of households report that they do not have latrines and the percentage of IDPs having access to potable water ranges from 8% to 44% depending on the settlement.

     

    In Yobe, only 43% of IDPs have access to an improved source of water.

    Humanitarian Need

    Humanitarian needs are numerous for the internally displaced persons (new arrivals), as for the host communities, whose resources are limited. The living conditions in host villages are very poor. The most urgent needs identified so far are food, shelter and non-food items (blankets, mattresses, soap, drinking and water fetching buckets sleeping mats, kitchen utensils etc.).

    According to humanitarian needs assessment conducted by International Islamic Youth League, the majority of the internally displaced persons are women and children given that many men were killed or separated from their families during the attacks or during their displacement.

    On 7 June 2016, during a meeting organised by the Prime Minister with humanitarian partners, the Government of Nigeria requested the support of the international NGOs and humanitarian community to assist people fleeing Nigeria internally displaced persons and host communities. During this meeting, the Government expressed desire to open a camp in Adamawa, Borno, Gombe and Yobe to facilitate the provision of assistance and ensure the security of internally displaced persons arriving, whilst UNHCR, UNICEF, UNOCHA International Islamic Youth League and other Humanitarian Aid Agencies complement government’s effort  

    Since the year 2014 the International Islamic Youth League in collaboration with the Chadian Government and UNHCR has directed much effort towards the alleviation of the plight of refugees in Chad.

    Given the increase in the Boko Haram’s attacks in Nigeria, there is a risk of additional population movements to northern region and of a worsening humanitarian situation. Initial forecasts for 2016 (according to the 2016 Humanitarian Needs Overview in northern Nigeria), which foresaw the arrival of 147,000 newly Nigerian Internally displaced persons in the northern region, have already been exceeded.

    The International Islamic Youth League is now increasing efforts to access affected areas which remains a challenge, given that people are staying on several areas in the northern region, some of which can only be reached by boat, and to cope with the weather conditions that limit the possibilities of movement of humanitarian actors.

     

    Main Project Activities

    This project will seek to execute the following activities-

    • Registration and documentation of Internally displaced persons

    • Identify special cases of the victims

    • Distribute humanitarian relief items

    • Post distribution monitoring: future plans to address the problem issues and the situations of victims

    • Evaluation and Reporting

    • International Islamic Youth League (IIYL) will procure and provide from the project budget the following

      Food Commodities,

      3,750 bags of rice (25kg each), 3,750 rubber containers vegetable oil (10 liters each), 324 bags (50 kg each) of sugar, 651 bags (50 Kg each) of flour, 360 bags (18 kg each) of salt to 1,085 vulnerable groups including pregnant women, lactating mothers and children.

      Nonfood Items,

      7,500 sets of Kitchen sets, 11,250 pieces of Blankets, 11,250 pieces of Sleeping Mats, 7,500 Mosquito Nets, 7,500 of 34cm Buckets, 7,500 Plastic Drinking Buckets, 7,500 and 7,500 Kerosene Lamps

    •  At the end of distribution of every of the Items (Food and Non Food) report will be submitted to Donor Organization attached with beneficiary lists.

      This action will increase health and nutrition for the most vulnerable groups and contribute to food availability till proper measures are put in place to address the plight of target beneficiaries.

      Furthermore, fund raising and advocacy activities will continue for the enhancement of low wellbeing to high wellbeing of vulnerable groups; including soliciting more funds for the provision of more non-food items from time to time as and when the need may arise, safe drinking water, medical supplies and community services assistance.

      Overarching Project Goal

      Ultimately this project seeks to ensure that most vulnerable among the Nigerian Internally displaced persons have access to humanitarian relief, safer, nutritious food and non-food items. It also maintains healthier active life, whereby there is an increase availability of food and non-food items to address their basic household and community’s basic needs.

      By the end of the project duration, the following results shall emerge:-

    • Increased number of meals consumed by targeted Internally displaced persons Households

    • Reduced rationing of food at mealtimes by targeted Households

    • Reduced the possibility of beneficiaries embarking on certain inhuman activities, such as street begging or child labor in the name of striving for food by targeted households

    • Reduced Migration in search of income or food to buy for targeted households

    • Reduced the tendency of increase in prices of food in the market.

    • Increased availability of food commodities at beneficiary households

      By the end of the project duration, the target beneficiaries would be opportune to access Monthly Relief food Distribution for life sustenance

      Remarks:

      The result of a general needs assessment conducted in target communities by International Islamic Youth League reveals that there is a significant presence of people among the displaced persons that fall under vulnerable category. This project will target this vulnerable category of the internally displaced persons.

      As such, 20% of the beneficiaries are aged men and women (above 60 year of ages), 15 % are lactating mothers, 10 % are pregnant women, 15% are unaccompanied Children and 40% are accompanied children.
