Ongoing conflict across West Africa has forced more than 2.7 million people to flee terrifying violence in Nigeria, Niger and Chad. Having left everything behind, these desperate families now face new dangers - hunger, malnutrition and disease.

Oxfam is there, providing life-saving support to the people who need us most - but the scale of this crisis means we urgently need your help to do more.
