Where we work
Our annual report
Why Burkina Faso? We have been working in Burkina Faso since 2021, responding to a complex humanitarian crisis. Political unrest, conflict and climate change have combined to form an unprecedented humanitarian emergency in a country that already struggled with chronic hunger and malnutrition.
Burkina Faso is facing a multitude of challenges
By providing displaced families with basic necessities and access to quality health care, they are able to let go of some of the stress and start to rebuild their lives.
Conflict has displaced more than 1.9 million people in just two years, making Burkina Faso the fastest-growing displacement crisis in recent times. 80% of all internally displaced Burkinabés are women and children. More broadly, one-fifth of the country’s population, or 3.5 million Burkinabés, require humanitarian assistance; a 60% increase in the last year. Burkina Faso also has one of the highest child mortality rates in the world.
Over 350 households received emergency assistance to cover their basic food and shelter needs after fleeing armed conflict in the East and Sahel regions.
How we are helping in Burkina Faso
We are working with people living in Burkina Faso to improve food security, nutrition, healthcare, access to water, sanitation and hygiene.
