Caption : North-Eastern Nigeria. This man’s wife and three children went missing in 2014. He busies himself with his farm and herd of cows which his children used to help him with. “My son used to help me take care of the livestock; since his disappearance, I have a huge burden on my shoulders and I do everything myself”, he explains. Through prayers, he continues to hope that his family will be found.

"The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) works with National Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies to reunite family members who have been separated during the armed conflict of Lake Chad. Providing knowledge about the fate of those who have gone missing during situations of armed violence is a core part of the ICRC's work. Presently, over 21,600 cases of missing persons have been reported in Nigeria and are actively being handled. This series of pictures depict persons who have no knowledge about their loved ones' whereabouts."
