UNHCR calls for urgent support for more than 35,000 people who fled a surge in militant attacks The MNJTF, which includes forces from Cameroon, Chad , Nigeria, Niger and Benin, aims at countering Boko Haram and preventing other insurgent groups from gaining ground across the Lake Chad region.

This is for the situation of the displaced, but also of the refugees. "

Responding in a concerted manner should not be done only on the military plan , but aid and development programs must be the result of a consensus between the four countries bordering Lake Chad. This is so that the refugee or the displaced person in Chad does not feel better treated than the victim of Boko Haram in Cameroon , Niger or in Nigeria .
