In ‪#‎Nigeria‬ there is a major food and nutrition emergency, but a window of opportunity has opened – your urgent help is needed to reach 250,000 children suffering from acute malnutrition after being isolated by Boko Haram in parts of Borno State for two years.
We've been in Nigeria since 2010 and our expert teams helped 2.1 million people last year – but we haven't been able to access many communities, which were cut off from aid. Now Boko Haram has been pushed back; we have a window of opportunity to travel to these “no go” conflict zones.
The reports and images we are receiving from our colleagues are harrowing – more than anyone should see or experience – and we need to act with extreme urgency. We will save thousands of lives if you are able to support our rapid emergency response. Please act now by making a lifesaving donation: www.actionagainsthunger.org/nigeria

Behind the frontlines of fighting in northeast #Nigeria, 615,000 children are acutely malnourished and have been cut off from essential, lifesaving aid. The Nigerian government has declared a food and nutrition emergency in Borno State, and humanitarian actors are now getting limited access to that area for the first time in nearly two years. We are calling for protection and full support of aid workers to conduct rapid needs assessments and reach families who have been without shelter, food, water, and nutrition assistance: http://nohun.gr/29LFJMx

In undertaking long-term research projects, often qualitative research serves as an important complement to quantitative data points. Check out this fascinating Q&A with a researcher in Pakistan for the REFANI project, aiming to strengthen the evidence base on the nutritional impact and cost-effectiveness of cash- and voucher-based food assistance programs: http://nohun.gr/29ORq1Z

Who's an unsung hero in the humanitarian world? The dairy cow! It's ‪#‎CowAppreciationDay‬ -- yes, that's a real thing, folks -- and we want to acknowledge that cows are power players when it comes to food security and livelihoods. A single dairy cow can provide a family in need with years of nutritious milk and a source of income: http://bit.ly/29vNSzX

As many of us the US experience a mid-summer heatwave, let us remember how lucky we are to guzzle down a cold glass of water or splash some clean water on our faces. Let's work together to bring clean water to our friends across the globe.

Sneak peak - we'll be proudly cheering on ‪#‎TeamRefugees‬ at the Rio Olympics next month! This summer, for the first time ever, an all-refugee team will compete under the Olympic flag. Ten world-class athletes, forced by conflict and circumstance to flee their homes, are being given a chance to compete in Rio. Stay tuned for more the week of 8/1.
