Snapshot of life in an informal settlement in Dikwa
Many of the shelters in Dikwa are not suitable for families to stay in. However, most people arrive without any possessions, and have no choice but to make do with what they can find. Rainy season has now begun, and the first few storms have already damaged many shelters in Dikwa and other cities in Borno state. In addition to food, a place to stay is a concern for many families who are literally seeking shelter from the storm.
