Islamic Relief began working in Niger, with an emergency programme to address the food crisis in June 2005.
Our current programmes cover health and nutrition as well as water and sanitation.
Our Therapeutic Feeding Centres – in four district hospitals – help severely malnourished children with medical complications.
There are also 35 community integrated health centres with Supplementary Feeding Centres. These deliver support for moderately malnourished children.
We also provide free health care for malnourished children, their mothers, and pregnant and nursing women.
Water and sanitation activities include constructing wells, hand pumps and latrines, and raising community awareness to reduce the spread of disease.
