Description : ICRC website, photo gallery of 10.07.2019: Wuro Dadi families get seeds, farm inputs to rebuild

In April, two hundred families in Wuro Dadi, a village in Adamawa state, Nigeria, received from the maize, rice and cowpea seeds. Each family also received a cash grant for the purchase of food and tools. This was part of a wider agricultural support programme that the International Committee of the Red Cross carried out for more than 80,000 families that were affected by armed conflict and violence.
The daily lives of the people of Wuro Dadi were recently disrupted by communal violence, further exacerbating the humanitarian challenges already posed by the Lake Chad conflict, now in its tenth year. Houses, property and farm produce were destroyed during the violence leaving the entire community with very limited resources to sustain its livelihood.
