50,000 people are now getting support from Christian Aid in Nigeria.
Violence in northern parts of the country have forced people to flee their homes leaving everything behind.
The charity says it's providing food, cooking utensils and mosquito nets.
Charles Usie, country manager for Christian Aid Nigeria said: "Farming is the primary occupation in Benue state and the main source of income for most households.
"As well as people losing their lives, violent attacks during this conflict have destroyed farmlands leaving people homeless and jobless.
This is another example of the growing insecurity in the country but we must put pressure on the authorities - they cannot ignore the crisis in Benue".
A Monthly Gift Of $11 Makes A World Of Difference
In a world of fake news there’s never been a greater need for quality Christian journalism. Premier’s mission is to provide the Church with the most up to date and relevant news, told from a Christian perspective. But we can’t do it without you.
Unlike many websites we haven't put up a paywall — we want to keep our journalism free at the point of need and as open as we can. Premier’s news output takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. No one in the USA is sharing news like we are across radio, magazines and online so please help us to continue that today.
For a monthly gift of $11 or more we’d also be able to send you a free copy of the brand new Premier Bible, a wonderful Anglicised version of the NLT packed with exclusive bonus content, reading plan and resources to help you get the most out of scripture.
Your monthly support will make a world of difference. Thank you.
