Hauwa - Nigeria

“To be a volunteer it is very good because you meet people from different backgrounds, different conditions."

When flooding hit Hauwa's village not long ago she was eager to help those affected, despite the fact she herself had been displaced and her mum’s home completely destroyed.

Hauwa started volunteering with Nigerian Red Cross a few years ago back seeing how they helped her community during earlier flooding. "The work they did - I thought, I need to be a part of this."Photo: IFRC/Corrie Butler
