Première Urgence Internationale in Nigeria

Première Urgence Internationale has been present in Northeast Nigeria since April 2016, addressing the needs of crisis-affected populations through a comprehensive integrated response.

In Maiduguri, Borno State’s capital, Première Urgence Internationale has been facilitating access to food commodities for IDPs and host communities (through a cash-based approach) as well as ensuring the provision of primary health care and nutrition services to them. In addition, Première Urgence Internationale is managing an inter-agency logistics platform to support humanitarian partners intervening in Northeast Nigeria.

As part of its commitment to the integrated approach, Première Urgence Internationale launched a Protection and Community Outreach intervention as a mainstreaming component of all ongoing projects in 2018. A new base was also opened in Monguno, Monguno LGA in order to deploy health, nutrition and protection activities in Kukawa LGA, mainly in the towns of Cross-Kauwa and Kukawa.

The first « breakfast debate » of 2019 at the Institut français du Nigéria in partnership with Première Urgence Internationale
To launch the exhibition Through the eyes of Maiduguri by Première Urgence Internationale at the Institut français du Nigéria, the NGO organised a breakfast debate at the Institut français du Nigéria on January 22nd, 2019 
Première Urgence Internationale has been present in Northeastern Nigeria since April 2016, addressing the needs of populations affected by crisis through a comprehensive integrated response. To shed light on their programmes they decided to create an exhibition called “Through the eyes of Maiduguri” based on the work of Ilan Deutsch-Levitan, French photographer, and Clarence Ugdebe (Gottay Photography), Nigerian photographer. The exhibition reveals the faces and stories of displaced and vulnerable populations of Maiduguri.
Attended by 50 people, the Breakfast debate focused on the activities of Première Urgence Internationale in Nigeria and the creative techniques used by the photographers to capture the ubiquitous and essential humanitarian aid in Maiduguri as well as the consequences of the crisis that has affected north-eastern Nigeria for several years.
The Exhibition will remain open until the 3rd of February, 2019.
