Why Chad? Chad was ranked 190 of 191 countries in the UNDP 2022 Human Development Index and is one of the poorest countries in the world. Chad continues to be highly vulnerable to climate change and other stressors. In 2022, Chad recorded its heaviest rainfall in the past 30 years, these floods affect more than one million people.
A country left vulnerable
Food insecurity affects 6.1 million people and the situation is deteriorating - Chad is experiencing a third consecutive year of severe food insecurity and its worst lean season in the last 10 years. There are nearly one million people displaced, including 524,417 refugees and 406,573 internally displaced persons, as well as Chadian returnees and formerly displaced returnees.
We are responding to the humanitarian needs of host communities and displaced populations in the Lake Chad area, implementing health and nutrition programmes to deliver life-saving assistance and access to basic services health, water, hygiene and sanitation.
Health and nutrition
In 2022, we supported 68,902 vulnerable and displaced people with improved health and nutritional services; free health care services via our mobile clinics; and clean and safe drinking water though the construction and rehabilitation of boreholes.
Education in communities
