The International Rescue Committee (IRC) is one of the world's leading crisis response agencies, providing life-saving assistance and supporting recovery and reconstruction for people affected by war and natural disasters. Active in public health, education, livelihoods, women's empowerment, youth development, and protection and promotion of rights, IRC assists people from harm to home.
IRC entered Nigeria in October 2012 to respond to a widespread flood disaster. IRC’s Emergency Response Team, with local partner CISCOPE (Civil Society Coalition for Poverty Eradication), implemented a project to support livelihoods and improve WASH in Kogi State from February to May 2013; 54 communities benefited from distribution of seeds and seedlings, new farming techniques trainings, household items, water, sanitation and hygiene promotion activities. This was followed by a 3-month nutrition and food security program in the same location from October 2013 to January 2014. Our current project addresses malnutrition and associated health concerns among conflict-affected children in the newly liberated areas of Borno State
