There is a fundraiser ongoing for those who have been victims of the extremist group Boko Haram. It is for the Al-amin Dagash IDP Camp, in Maiduguri, Nigeria.

Many refugees remain, against their life plans, in dire circumstances and then stay open to the elements with poor housing provisions, because they are refugees. The live in huts with “thatched” roofing.

However, whenever the rain comes in, this causes leakages and problems for their quality of life, even in as terrible as circumstances as they are in post-Boko Haram.

One possible solution proposed, through the fundraiser, is the use of tarpaulin to prevent further leakages in the huts. If you can spare some finances to help these refugees, it would be greatly appreciated:
