Iraq + 1 other
Syrian families from Kobane find safety in Iraq

Report
Mercy Corps

In the northern Syrian city of Kobane, just miles from the country’s border with Turkey, the past month of intense fighting between militants and Kurdish forces has driven more than 130,000 people from their homes.

Many ran across the border into Turkey, but now some Syrian families have made the long and treacherous journey to Iraq’s Arbat refugee camp, near the city of Sulaymaniyah. There, the Mercy Corps team was able to provide desperately-needed supplies to the new refugees.

The story of Ganyiel: A safe hiding place

Report
Mercy Corps

Nearly a year of conflict in South Sudan has left millions displaced and hungry, and in Unity, one of the most violent states, there are few safe places to hide. The small and isolated village of Ganyiel is one of them, and people arrive in waves to escape when fighting erupts in other cities and towns.

But Ganyiel is no paradise. It’s considered safe, but food shortages, flooding and empty markets make survival difficult, even without a constant threat of violence.

Ebola response: Mobilizing communities to stop the spread

Report
Mercy Corps

The Ebola outbreak in West Africa continues to spread, devastating communities and killing thousands. Mercy Corps is mounting a massive public health education campaign to stem the spread of the disease in Liberia, the epicenter of the worst outbreak in history.

So far, there have been nearly 9,000 cases of Ebola reported in the region, which have resulting in more than 4,000 deaths. This week, the World Health Organization’s Dr. Aylward delivered the unsettling news that there could be as many as 10,000 new cases of Ebola every week by December.

In the field helping families stranded by Kashmir floods

Report
Mercy Corps

The Mercy Corps emergency team in Kashmir was on their way to deliver supplies in Bandipora district when they met Fatima — a 27-year old mother who was making the long trip home after traveling to a nearby village to gather a pot of clean water. She was waiting for a boat to take her across the floodwaters and explained that it can take her up to two hours just to make the trip for water each day.

Like many people in Bandipora district, Fatima lost nearly everything in last month’s Kashmir floods and worries most about her family and her children.
