In a crisis, every humanitarian actor is concerned with saving lives and diminishing the suffering of the population. But efforts in immediately obvious areas like shelter, food and protection alone do not guarantee health. There is little benefit in providing food if people are still to die of meningitis, malaria, measles or childbirth.

This is a summary of what was said by UNHCR spokesman Ron Redmond - to whom quoted text may be attributed - at today's press briefing at the Palais des Nations in Geneva.
Kenya - Shelter
Shelters for refugees collapsed in rains and were not immediately rebuilt because of budget constraints. Homeless refugees were forced to sleep in school buildings, causing disruptions to education programs for refugee children.
Djibouti - Food
Funding constraints forced a two-month suspension of programs for malnourished refugee children at two feeding centers. Malnutrition rates increased among some of the country's 20,000 refugees.
Congo-Kinshasa - Protection
