This 1968 photograph depicted a group of Nigerian refugees, who were waiting for food rations, while at a relief camp in Port Harcourt, Nigeria, during the Nigerian-Biafran civil war of the late 1960s. In 1967, the National Communicable Disease Center (NCDC) was asked to assist the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) in its disease control and death prevention efforts during the Nigerian-Biafran conflict. A large number of relief camps were established for nutrition assessment, and feeding operations for the local villagers around the war zone.
