12 days locked in the dark, then hope I UNICEF
Description: “I have a lot of things in my heart and they are bad and good, but a lot of bad.” 11-year-old Dounia from Afghanistan had to escape the conflict with her family and their journey was harrowing. Smugglers in Turkey kept her family locked in the dark for 12 days. “Nobody can say something to them, if they [do] say, they kill them.” Dounia feared that the smugglers would just take their money without helping them. After two lost years, she now lives safely in Greece with her family, and she’s back at school learning Greek and English. “We want to be safe like Europe people. Why they are safe, why? Why we are not safe?” Dounia still wonders. If you believe #AChildIsAChild, share this video to stand with refugee and migrant children. We are calling for a six-point plan to keep refugee and migrant children safe.

Helping Afghanistan Become More Resilient to Natural Disasters

Learn how the World Bank, with the support of Global Facility for Disaster Reduction and Recovery (GFDRR) and the Disaster Risk Management Hub in Tokyo, is building resilience through an on-going disaster risk management program that informs and leverages ongoing sector work in transport, education and social development in the challenging context of Afghanistan.

Afghanistan: Providing emergency education to returning refugee children
Description: Decades of conflict and insecurity have forced countless Afghan families to flee from their homes, stripping children of their right to access education. In 2016, the country saw a staggering number of refugees -- the vast majority of whom were children -- return from neighbouring Pakistan, most of them after decades of displacement. This sudden surge in the number of returning refugees has overwhelmed the capacity of Afghan schools to provide much-needed education to conflict-affected boys and girls. Unable to attend school, children are also exposed to various protection risks, ranging from early marriage to forced recruitment into armed groups. In response to the situation, the European Commission has teamed up with the Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC) to introduce an emergency education project in eastern Afghanistan, an area bordering Pakistan that has witnessed the highest number of refugee-returnees over the past few years. The initiative helps ensure access to quality education and a protective environment for vulnerable children. Video: Norwegian Refugee Council

Afghan Women Helping Afghan Women
Description: On International Women’s Day 2017, Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) is highlighting the challenges that women in Afghanistan face during pregnancy and childbirth. Aqila is 29 year-old Afghan midwife supervisor at MSF's hospital in Dasht-e-Barchi in Kabul, Afghanistan. "I’ve seen a lot of women in my life dying during delivery or after delivery because of PPH (post-partum haemorrhage) or a complication of delivery. And I’ve seen children growing without their mother. It’s really a very sad thing for me. And I decided in the future to become a midwife and now since 10 years I’m working as a midwife and I’m really happy about this."

A Sisterhood of Women in an Afghanistan Hospital #IWD2017
Description: On International Women’s Day 2017, Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) is highlighting the challenges that women in Afghanistan face during pregnancy and childbirth. #HerVoiceIsMyVoice Severine Caluwaerts is an MSF OBGYN in Khost, Afghanistan, at MSF's largest maternity project. This is her seventh time in Khost. "I’m doing exactly the job that made me study medicine so many years ago, to help people who most need help," said Caluwaerts. "Afghanistan is a war-torn country. Our patients are continuously confronted with the war. Families lose husbands, children die, mothers die. And what MSF is offering them is a safe place to deliver." " I see Afghan women, Afghan doctors, Afghan midwives. I see them from doing their first delivery to becoming really experienced and two of our national doctors still here, Dr Sadia and Dr Farida, I taught them basically their first Caesarean section and now so many years later they are independent. It’s like a sisterhood of women. It’s Afghan women taking care of Afghani women and Afghani babies." Watch "Afghan Women Helping Afghan Women": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hwMBPOVDxVo

2. Who's out there? | Humanitarian Outcomes presentation
Description: This is part 2 of the webinar Who's out there? Getting an accurate picture of humanitarian presence. In a humanitarian crisis, one of the most important things to know is who is doing what, and where. That said, it has always been difficult to get an accurate and well-informed understanding of the presence of humanitarian actors on the ground, due to the autonomous and de-centralised nature of humanitarian responses. This is particularly the case in highly insecure settings, where international organisations must operate under constrained access and where local efforts to meet humanitarian need can often go unnoticed. How can we make sure we know who’s out there? In the fourth webinar of Bridging the Evidence Gap webinar series, we speak to Humanitarian Outcomes and OCHA Afghanistan about mapping presence in hard to reach areas.
