N'djamena - Post Report Question and Answers

What is the relative size of the expatriate community? How would you describe overall morale among expatriates?

Not huge, mostly French. - Aug 2020

Small but fairly high morale. It's a hardship/danger post but most people here knew that when they chose to come and have adjusted their expectations accordingly. The most unhappy people are those who came here for the money (currently 30% hardship and 15% danger pay for Embassy Americans) and yet expect to be able to live and work as if they are in Washington D.C. - Apr 2014

Small and getting smaller now that many organizations have declared Chad to be an unaccompanied post. Right now it's almost non-existent with the current rebel fighting. - Nov 2006
