Contexte et justification de la mission

La zone de Bakala s’était vidée de la quasi-totalité de sa population (estimée à 13 000 habitants), suite aux combats entre l’UPC (qui contrôlait jadis la zone) et la coalition (le groupe armé qui contrôle actuellement la zone). La population en fuite avait emprunté 3 directions, principalement : l’axe Bakala-Bambari (Sud-Est), l’axe Bakala-Grimari (Sud-Ouest) et axe Bakala-Mbrès (Nord-Ouest).

The six-year war in Syria has killed nearly 500,000 people, uprooted half of the country’s population and blighted the economic mainstay of agriculture in one of the world’s earliest centers of farming. Mercy Corps has stepped in to help farmers feed their communities again and give displaced persons the means to raise their own food.

Children hunting rodents for food. Mothers boiling coconut skins to eat. Life in famine is a life of desperation.

More than 20 million people face starvation across the Horn of Africa, Nigeria and Yemen. But nowhere is the situation more dire than South Sudan, where the world’s only official famine has taken root.

This emergency is a grave humanitarian crisis — but it also threatens to get worse. Without humanitarian access, an additional 1 million people will be on the brink of starvation in the next three months.

The road to starvation can be long and agonizing. But for Hauwa, it happened in an instant.

One afternoon last February, Hauwa and her five children were home on their farm in Nigeria when the distant rumble of motorcycles broke through the peace of their village. Boko Haram had come. The village scattered: Hauwa dropped everything, grabbed her kids, untied the family cow and sprinted into the wilderness. In a single moment, the life they knew was over.

As the morning sun slowly warms the hillsides, 16-year-old Olga gently gathers stakes and old vine supports from a dusty plot in the Guatemalan highlands. The harvest is over, and rows of dry, papery stalks are all that remain of the lush snap pea plants that once grew here.

She talks and giggles with the small group of other youth cleaning the land beside her. Once the field has been cleared, it will be ready for them to plant again when the first rains come in spring.
