The children in the village cry at night because they are hungry. Chaibou needs to leave his wife and children behind and go to Nigeria in search of work. He goes every year, but this year he must go early because his family is desperate. The situation is unsettled in Nigeria. While Chaibou was there, a bomb exploded less than a kilometre from where he was living.

Save The Children has given Harira and Chaibou an emergency cash transfer to so they can buy essential supplies like millet. It means Chaibou can come home from Nigeria and be with his family. Instead of relying on hand outs like clothing or food, providing cash for essential items gives families the dignity of choice and empowers them to improve their own lives.
