Mamman Kuru and his youngest child, Jaji Maji, Karasus LGA, Yobe state. Like many internally displaced persons (IDPs), Mamman Kuru and his family fled from conflict in his native community and arrived Jaji Maji, Karasua LGA, Yobe state without even the most basic materials for his family to survive and maintain their dignity. The USAID/OFDA funded WASH project provides non-food items and hygiene materials for families like Kuru's.
Background: The Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene (WASH) Support for Boko Haram conflict-affected families in Yobe State project was implemented by Catholic Relief Services (CRS) and funded by the USAID’s Office of U.S. Foreign Disaster Assistance (USAID/OFDA) between April 2016 to May 2017. The project helped internally displaced persons (IDPs) and host family households to gain knowledge about good hygiene practices and access to WASH non-food items (NFIs) using e-vouchers.
