Remembering the Tsunami: A Decade of Strengthening Humanitarian Response
Ten years ago, the global community faced what was one of the biggest tests of humanitarianism in recent history.
On Dec. 26, 2004, an earthquake rumbled off the coast of Indonesia, triggering a series of devastating tsunamis that struck 14 countries across the Indian Ocean. At least 228,000 people lost their lives and millions more were left homeless.
This accountability review is presented as part of the Effectiveness Review Series 2013/14. The report documents the findings from a review carried out in February/March 2014 that examined the degree to which Oxfam meets its own standards for accountability.
The Haitian National Police and the UN peacekeeping force must avoid unnecessary and excessive use of force when patrolling and dispersing demonstrations and thoroughly investigate all allegations of human rights violations during protests, Amnesty International said today after incidents were reported in the demonstrations which took place in Haiti on 12 and 13 December.
Snapshot 10–16 December
Iraq: 700,000 IDPs, mostly in Dahuk and Anbar governorates, are living in shelters that are not adapted for winter temperatures. 945,000 IDPs are in dire need of kerosene for heating.
Afghanistan: Kabul has been hit by at least 12 suicide attacks since early November, with more attacks also carried out elsewhere, fuelling concerns about the protection of civilians.
Concern is now into the third phase of its successful “Return to Neighbourhoods” programme in Haiti’s capital, Port-au-Prince. The programme, funded by the EU’s humanitarian aid office (ECHO), aims to relocate 2400 families who lost their homes in the 2010 earthquake away from temporary camps to suitable rental accommodation by mid-2015. It will also help families develop livelihoods activities so they can continue support themselves and their families and continue to afford the rent in their new homes.

Haiti's emboldened opposition welcomed the resignation Sunday of Prime Minister Laurent Lamothe, who faced repeated calls to go over the failure to hold legislative elections in the past three years.
The increasingly unpopular Lamothe's resignation had been widely expected after President Michel Martelly said Friday that his cabinet chief was ready to leave "to help find a solution" to the Caribbean country's dragging political impasse.

Haitian police and UN peacekeepers fired tear gas and clashed with several thousand opposition supporters who tried to march on the presidential palace Friday.
The unrest was only the latest in a series of demonstrations by opposition supporters demanding the resignation of President Michel Martelly and Prime Minister Laurent Lamothe.
The march in downtown Port-au-Prince, which still bears the scars of a devastating January 2010 earthquake, was broken up when UN blue helmets fired tear gas grenades.
L´aide de 70 millions de dollars US favorisera la création d'emploi formel et encouragera l'investissement privé
Opposition protests are growing in Haiti, demanding the resignation of President Michel Martelly.
The demonstrations have been sparked by a presidential commission report asking the prime minister to resign in order to form a new consensus government.
After eight days of consultations, the commission Thursday delivered a report recommending Prime Minister Laurent Lamothe step down.
Upon crossing the doors of Mirebalais University Hospital in Haiti’s central region, it is easy to see how this state-of-the-art facility differs from many in the country. The lobby efficiently directs people to different specialty areas, including a dedicated ward for women’s health.
The American Red Cross provided $5.5 million for the construction and equipment of this hospital, run by Partners in Health and Haiti’s Ministry of Health. Since its opening in March 2013, it has provided much needed healthcare to more than 70,000 people.
