Terre des hommes (Tdh) is the first humanitarian organisation to bring emergency aid in the west of Mosul. We support children and their families displaced due to the fighting between Iraqi Security Forces and ISIS.
Emergency distribution took place last week in the informal camp of Tal Jarabia, an hour away from Mosul. Children and their families have found refuge there after the fighting to gain ground from ISIS has started. We are the first organisation to work in this newly regained area in the west of Mosul.
Famine has been declared in some parts of South Sudan on February 20. This declaration is based on the highest level on the IPC scale* of food insecurity. It is only called out in the worst case scenario, where more than 20% of the families face acute food shortage and the death rate of children under five is higher than four deaths per 10,000 children a day. In some other parts of South Sudan, humanitarian actors talk of deaths of starvation and the urgent need of food and agricultural assistance.
A humanitarian crisis is currently unfolding in the besieged town of Yei, in South Sudan, trapping 100,000 people. In response to the crisis, Swiss Church Aid (HEKS/EPER) and the children´s aid foundation, Terre des hommes have launched a CHF 1.5 million project, supported by Swiss Solidarity.
