Chaque année, la Belgique alloue 600 000 euros à la Croix-Rouge pour financer ses interventions lors de « catastrophes silencieuses ». La seule année 2015 a été le théâtre de 346 catastrophes dont (quasiment) personne n’a entendu parler. Pourtant, elles ont causé près de 23 000 décès et affecté environ 100 000 personnes. Le manque de couverture médiatique à ce sujet entraîne une absence de soutien du public.

Highlights

  • Denmark made a generous contribution of DKK 6 million which has enabled WFP to maintain food distributions and nutrition programmes for refugees in Tanzania.

  • Since September 2016, over 10,000 refugees have fled into Tanzania each month. As a result of the continuing increase, WFP is facing a shortfall in funding and potential ration reductions. In response, WFP issued a second funding appeal in December to help maintain food assistance to refugees in Tanzania.
