‘I carried my nephews through the surges the typhoon caused. I was a council worker, but I found myself up to my neck in water, with two boys raised above my head to keep them safe.’ Kenneth Renera was one of the estimated 11 million people caught in and affected by Typhoon Haiyan, which struck the Philippines on November 8-9 2013.
Today, thanks in part to RedR UK, he is one of millions of Philippines nationals working to ensure he, his community, and his country recover, and are better protected in future.
The ongoing conflict in northern Kenya and Somalia has seen the region become increasingly unstable. KIRA, an ongoing programme led by RedR and UNOCHA, ran an orientation session in the region last month to engage with local stakeholders from the affected communities.
This evaluation report aims to provide an independent assessment of the performance of the Kenya Initial Rapid Assessment (KIRA) in phase I from June 2012 – May.
Everything they had was washed away; but RedR training means that next time floods come to Sindh, they won’t lose their homes.
Premi and her family live in Rojhi Kholi, a small village of 50 families in Pakistan’s Sindh Province. The Sindh is typically hot and dry, and when rain falls twice a year, it is just enough to irrigate the crops. Premi and her husband work are cotton farmers like most of the others in their village. Each month they earn just £19. Making ends meet is a real struggle, but they usually have enough to eat, because the land is fertile.
One hidden aspect of emergency response is the psychological toll it takes on aid workers, especially in challenging humanitarian situations like Darfur, Sudan. When RedR began work in the troubled region in 2005, we immediately saw the need to create a programme of training and support to help humanitarian staff cope with the insecurity and stress that comes with the job.
