Our Operations Coordinator Ayeasia Macintyre will be giving a special focus on the Chad Basin crisis.
Since 2009, the Islamist militant group Boko Haram has been waging an insurgency in Northern Nigeria. The violence has since spread to the neighbouring border regions of Niger, Chad and Cameroon. According to the United Nations (UNOCHA), the crisis has affected 30 million peopleShelterBox has been responding to this crisis since 2015 through the provision of shelter and other essential aid to communities and camps in Niger and Cameroon. In 2017 ShelterBox began also responding to the crisis in Chad.

We'll also be celebrating volunteer achievements and look at what is coming up for volunteers in the area.
