Welcometo SEMA official website. As we work tirelessly to bring up-to-standard emergency services to the people of Borno State, we greatly appreciate the contributions of our partners, particularly to the ongoing displacement crisis plaguing the state. It is a problem of unprecedented proportions, but with the resources available to the State Government and the support of our partners, we are highly confident of restoring normalcy very soon. However, without the continued support of the general public, the State would not have achieved all that it has, especially in the last two years. The majority of Displaced Persons (IDPs) are living among the general population, not in formal IDP camps. As a result, there is an immense strain on social and other basic services. We are counting on our people’s understanding, patients and inherent generosity as we move forward.

By pooling our efforts, and with effective coordination of the activities of all stakeholders, we can bring succour to displaced persons and other individuals affected by the current crisis.

Projects

At present, we have three on-going projects namely - Food Aid Community Outreach (FACO), Household Food Distribution and Common Services Feedback and Response Mechanism.




Food Aid Community Outreach (FACO)

This Project was implemented to address food security issues among the general population in Maiduguri and Jere. It is necessitated by the fact that a lot of displaced individuals are living with relatives in Maiduguri and Jere, and this has left some people unable to afford enough food to feed their families.




Household Food Distribution

Originally, feeding in formal IDP camps comprises of serving hot meals directly from collective camp kitchens. The household food distribution is introduced to counter various problems associated with communal cooking. So far (first distribution was conducted in May 2016), it is being implemented in five camps, and post-distribution monitoring and evaluation indicates a marked improvement from the communal kitchen method of feeding.




Common Services Feedback and Response Mechanism

To enable displaced persons living in IDP camps report, to the appropriate organization (State or NGO), issues that need addressing, IDPs from six sample campsunderwent a six-day preliminary training on Feedback and Response Mechanism. This training will set them on a path to becoming ambassadors that will help realize a more efficient humanitarian emergency response in IDP camps.
