Aisha Umaru (L) holds a basin of milk as Umaru Usman Kaski holds up firewood at the Bakasi IDP camp, Maiduguri, Nigeria. With little money to hand at the best of times, and struggling to find the goods they need, bartering is key to getting by for Bakasi camp's more than 21,000 displaced people. The eight-year Boko Haram insurgency in Nigeria's northeast has displaced around 2 million people, some in Nigeria and some overseas. The United Nations calls it one of the world's worst humanitarian crises. "We don't get money, that's why we do this," said Umaru Usman Kaski, hoping to trade a small bundle of firewood worth about 50 naira ($0.16) to support his family of eight.
