Eight-year-old Kelu was ill for most of the COVID-19 pandemic and lockdown in 2020. Her family relocated to the Malaysia Gardens Internally Displaced Persons (IDP) camp in Nigeria’s Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Abuja, in 2016. They had fled Boko Haram attacks in their home village of Gulumba, Borno State, north-east Nigeria. Her mother, Falmata Haruna, earns N500 (about $1.20) a day when she can find work as a hired farmhand, and is often not paid on time.
