Description:This photograph showed members of the Nigerian-Biafran civil war relief team unloading crates of codfish, which were airlifted from either of the Nigerian cities of Calabar, or Port Harcourt.
With the assistance of the Nigerian military, food supplies, like the dried fish shown here, were distributed to Red Cross refugee camps outside of the war zone. The CDC responded to widespread famine among refugees of the civil war by carrying out rapid health and nutrition assessments, coordinating the overall health and nutrition response, and implementing surveillance systems to track rates of illness and death.
