Lake Chad: Life amidst a protracted crisis (Chad)
Since 2015, thousands of people in the Lake Chad region have been forced to flee their homes as a result of violent clashes between armed groups and Chadian military forces.

Between 2015 and 2018, we ran mobile clinics in the areas around Baga Sola, Bol, Liwa and Kiskawa to provide basic healthcare and mental health support to displaced people and the local population. Most of the medical conditions we treated were linked to the precarious living conditions and poor sanitation.

We also supported the health centre in Tchoukoutalia and offer mental healthcare to Nigerian refugees in Dar es Salaam camp.

We are still present in the east and south of Chad, and have an emergency response unit (CERU) capable of delivering medical care in under 72 hours.
