Body

According to the National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA) in Banjul, at least 6,350 internally displaced people and refugees have been registered in the Foni Kansala area of The Gambia due to insecurity along its southern border since 21 March. Most of the affected families have critical needs such as food, shelter, water, sanitation, and hygiene. Host families have limited resources to assist the displaced and refugees. Kansala district students have been absent from school since February. Displaced persons camps have been set up in Bintang, Kansala, and Bondali districts. Humanitarian organizations are mobilizing to provide critical assistance.
