Ouagadougou, 02 December, 2023 / 9:22 pm (ACI Africa).
Caritas Burkina Faso, supported by Caritas Internationalis (CI) will be providing aid and support aimed at strengthening livelihoods of vulnerable families displaced by terrorism in the West African nation.
In a Monday, November 27 report, CI officials say terrorism coupled with harsh climatic conditions and lack of government assistance has left many Burkinabe men, women, and children exposed to further risks including malnutrition, violence, and exploitation.
“In view of the humanitarian situation and in coordination with other humanitarian actors, OCADES-Caritas Burkina with the support of Caritas Internationalis plans to provide aid and various support to strengthen the livelihoods of vulnerable families including food and nutritional supplements, drinking water, and livestock products,” they say.
They add, “Due to rising insecurity, drought, and flooding, many vulnerable populations within Burkina Faso are without adequate resources to meet their basic needs.”
In the report, Dadjoa Mano, explains the dire situation he has been living in since he was displaced from his home.
