Description : In 2014, this 27-year-old woman fled Amchidé, a locality affected by the Lake Chad crisis, while she was pregnant with her second child. Just after this, she lost contact with her husband. In 2018, she received news of his death and heard that he died in prison in 2015.
Today, she provides for her family thanks to her sewing activity. The ICRC supports her and gave her a sewing machine.
