Goal and Strategic objectives
The overarching goal of this strategy is to support the Government of the Republic of the Union of Myanmar and local communities to ensure that the lives, dignity and well-being of persons affected by conflict and disaster are protected.
To achieve this goal, the Humanitarian Country Team (HCT) has agreed on the following strategic objectives for humanitarian action in 2015:
02 December – 09 December | Issue 73
When the conflict broke out on 15 December last year in South Sudan, shattering two-and-a-half hopeful years of independence for the world’s newest nation, tens of thousands of people fled to the ‘Protection of Civilian’ (POC) site at ‘UN HOUSE’ in Juba. Most were from the Nuer tribe. Overnight, the Nuer people became displaced in their own country, desperate for security. In chaotic and violent scenes, children were killed, and many separated from loved ones.
The high number of IDPs in Kirkuk, along with ongoing insecurity in the area, make the governorate a humanitarian priority.
Tents are being used to host some of the millions of Arbaeen pilgrims in Kerbala in order to not re-displace the IDPs that are sheltering in the pilgrimage accommodations; these will be transferred to IDPs after the celebrations.
Humanitarian airlifts for mobile health clinics and winterisation items have arrived in country, with more planned for the coming weeks.
WFP announced 9 December that it is reinstating food assistance to Syrian refugees in neighbouring countries thanks to a massive expression of support from the public, the private sector and donor countries. By mid-December, Syrian refugees in Lebanon, Jordan, Turkey, Iraq and Egypt will have their electronic food vouchers – also known as e-cards – uploaded with an average amount of US$ 30 per family member that can immediately be used to buy food from local shops.
