Tchad : L'éduction pour les filles dans les camps de réfugiés soudanais, entre obstacle et espoir

N'Djamena, le 11 septembre 2014. Il ne faut pas sous-estimer ce que représente le fait de devoir marcher pendant des heures pour ramener de l'eau dans la chaleur étouffante du désert du Tchad oriental.

Report
Guardian

Why are WFP and UNHCR struggling to raise funds for humanitarian emergencies that don’t make the headlines?

It’s been called “disaster overload” – major crises in Syria, Iraq, South Sudan, the Central African Republic (CAR) and the Philippines have left the United Nations’ humanitarian response system reeling.
