Operational Highlights

The MSVCA will provide data on vulnerability and socio-economic situation of refugees on food security, protection, health, education, and capacities of each family that will serve as a basis to inform better programming and planning for the humanitarian assistance provided to Cameroonian refugees in Nigeria.
