Our local partners in Burkina Faso are offering immediate, practical help to families displaced by the recent insecurity in parts of the country.

Areas of the north and east have seen a recent rise in attacks by militants. Many familes have been forced to flee to safe areas, including those where our projects are based.  Those arriving often have little food or money to buy supplies and, in response, our partners have been providing emergency food aid.

One of these food distributions, shown in the picture, was made in our project area at Ouahigouya, in the north west of Burkina Faso.  Here 100 familes recieved food and other essentials with fhe help of funding from UK donors.

More donations are still urgently needed for this work and please consider supporting it here
