Étudiants privés d'université, difficultés d'approvisionnement pour les commerçants: les conséquences de la crise au Burundi voisin commencent à se faire durement sentir au Sud-Kivu, dans l'est de la République démocratique du Congo.
In the face of the global El Nino and other crises, leaders at the national, regional and international levels have an unprecedented opportunity and responsibility to address the underlying causes of food insecurity and guarantee that the most vulnerable children and communities get a head start through an immediate, effective, global response to prevent loss of life and livelihoods.
A total of 221,375 Burundian refugees and asylum-seekers have arrived in the neighbouring countries of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), the United Republic of Tanzania, Rwanda, as well as Uganda and Zambia since April 2015.
La plateforme des Enfants Reporters de RDC a été créée par le ministère du genre, de la famille et de l’enfant en collaboration avec l’UNICEF. C’est un cadre idéal qui permet aux enfants congolais de participer sur les questions les concernant, comme l’éducation, la santé ou la protection de l’enfant.
Somalia: Flooding has affected 132,000 people and displaced an estimated 60,000 as low-lying areas of Mogadishu have now been inundated, as well as areas of Middle Shabelle and Lower Juba. Main supply roads are impassable and some airstrips unusable The middle and lower reaches of the Shabelle River remain at high risk of flooding.
On 22 and 24 September 2015, our UNICEF delegation made its way to various municipalities of Kinshasa in light of its “Door-to-door” campaign aimed at enrolling out-of-school children aged 6 to 7 in their first year of primary school. Let me tell you about my enlightening experience.
In the reporting period, a total of 278 Burundian refugees arrived in Uganda, higher than last week’s 179 new arrivals.
Of these, 79 refugees were received at Kabazana Reception Centre, up from 36 new arrivals reported last week. Eight individuals were transported from Mirama Hills and Bugango border points, 16 were referred from Kampala and 55 individuals directly arrived at the reception centre.
The U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) supports Objective 1 of the Action Plan for Children in Adversity through comprehensive programming working to promote sound development of children living with and affected by HIV/AIDS. Early childhood development (ECD) is a critical component for breaking the cycle of poverty and inequality, particularly among this most vulnerable young population.
Nairobi, le 18 novembre 2015 – Les enfants courent le risque d’être les plus durement touchés par l’escalade de la violence au Burundi, a alerté aujourd’hui l’UNICEF, en précisant que 17 enfants ont déjà été tués et de nombreux autres blessés à cause de cette crise.
Summary of WFP assistance:
While Tanzania has a fast growing economy, this is predominantly an urban phenomenon. A vast majority of Tanzanians reside in rural areas and rely on subsistence level farming, which renders them vulnerable to climatic, economic and seasonal shocks. WFP runs a Country Programme in food insecure areas of the country and a Refugee Operation in north western Tanzania.
Summary of WFP assistance:
In 2015, WFP implemented a Country Programme (CP) aligned with the WFP Strategic Plan and based on two pillars of the Country Strategy: i) Access to adequate and nutritious food and basic social services; and ii) Risk and disaster management. The CP is composed of four components:
NAIROBI, Kenya, 18 November 2015 – Children risk bearing the brunt of an escalation in violence in Burundi, UNICEF warned today, noting that the crisis has already left 17 children dead and many more injured.
Since the crisis began in April, child rights violations have multiplied, with children being caught up in violent clashes and raids, schools being hit by grenade blasts and more than 100 children being arbitrarily detained, at times for long periods alongside adult prisoners.
Ali was 11 and his brother Akim was just 8 when they arrived alone in Swaziland in 2010. They remember little about their long journey here from their native Burundi – or maybe they prefer not to talk about leaving their home and what happened to their family. “We don’t have any parents,” the boys say.
“But we do remember that then we had two brothers. They died in the war. We’re scared of war.”
Yemen: 14.4 million people are now food insecure: two million more than in June and four million more than before the escalation of conflict in March. 7.6 million people are severely food insecure. Heavy fighting continues, in particular in Al Dhalee and Taizz governorates. Peace talks between Houthi and government representatives, which were expected to begin mid-November, are yet to take place.
