LWF Chad and its partners, UNHCR, CNAR and CARE, have distributed blankets and baby clothes donated by the Lutheran World Federation in Gore refugee camps and surrounding villages. The distribution organized with the help of refugees and host communities representatives have helped more than 13 955 persons in Gore.

The distribution teams based the distributions on partners’ statistics so as to provide a fair help to those in needs, the teams have also arranged to firstly help the group with the most urgent needs: the new arrivals. Blankets were thus distributed according to the number of members in the family and baby clothes were distributed to every woman with a baby under 1 year old.

A teenage mother living in the Azarai quarter of the Dosseye refugee camp, Sadia is the mother of a one month old baby. She explains that the father refused to recognize his child and being an orphan herself having the baby was a real struggle. Thanks be to God, she gave birth to a healthy baby and didn’t have any health problems. Without revenue and activity Sadia only survives thanks to the help she receives every month. She would like to sell oild and pastries to better support her child. Sadia is very thankful for the baby clothes LWF Chad distributed as she will be able to change her new born more often and protect him from the cold.

To support beneficiaries like Laya and Sadia LWF Chad intervene in camps and surrounding villages near Gore since 2013. LWF Chad hopes that its projects aiming to enhance food safety, develop income generating activities and promote peaceful coexistence will durably help the populations.
