Testimonies from Borno State: “Soon our children will die from hunger."

“Leaves are not enough to live on, but that’s all we have”

Awa Mudu lives in Kokerita IDP camp, Yobe, the state located next to Borno. “The only way to survive here is to gather wood to cook and sell.

"We suffer a lot from a shortage of wood because it is very difficult for my husband and I to collect it as we are quite old. We just returned from the forest where we gathered some leaves. The leaves are not enough to live on, but that’s all we have.” 


“Soon our children will die from hunger"

"We were threatened with guns while we were looking for wood. We were so afraid and we are still afraid. We don’t really have food and that poses a serious problem for the children. Soon our children will die from hunger.

"We try to do our own activities to survive.”

Aissa currently lives in the IDP camp in Beni Shiekh with her five children.
