COOPI’s worldwide operations increased once again in 2017. It means also that the number of humanitarian crises we have tried to respond to as effectively as ever has increased. We have decided not to limit ourselves to intervening when there is an emergency, only to then move on elsewhere; instead, we remain alongside the communities hit by those emergencies in the medium-to-long-term, so as to help them overcome their critical issues and launch a reconstruction process.
Message from our Regional Director
Despite numerous humanitarian challenges in 2017 in Africa, there were also a number of heart-warming accomplishments. A case in point, was when a local response of Red Crescent teams—and other partners—curbed Somalia's cholera outbreak through the power of local volunteers and shared international expertise. In terms of support to our members, 36 National Societies were able to kick start initiatives that built their capacity through seed grants.

In Nigeria, Boko Haram militants recently abducted and killed two aid workers. In the Democratic Republic of Congo, civilians threw stones at Ebola health workers, a day after rebels shot and killed two medics with the Congolese army.
London-based research group Humanitarian Outcomes says 139 humanitarian aid workers were killed worldwide in 2017, with another 102 wounded and 72 kidnapped. Data show the bulk of attacks against relief workers took place in South Sudan, Syria, Afghanistan and the Central African Republic.
Some 180 veterinarians drawn from 14 African countries will benefit from a training programme, In-Service Applied Veterinary Epidemiology (ISAVET), launched today by the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations and the Institute for Infectious Animal Diseases (IIAD), part of Texas A&M AgriLife Research.
The countries involved include Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Côte d'Ivoire, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Ethiopia, Ghana, Guinea, Kenya, Liberia, Mali, Senegal, Sierra Leone, Tanzania and Uganda.
Key trends in the week of October 21st in Africa include the rise in fighting in Cameroon after the re-election of president Biya; the continuation of the Islamist violence and the rapid escalation of intercommunal violence in Mali; and other escalation triggers in CAR, DRC, Guinea and Ethiopia.

GUNMEN AMBUSH FOOD AID CONVOY
Armed attackers on 25 October accosted a food aid convoy from the capital Bangui to Paoua town in the north-west and robbed the truckers of their belongings. The convoy managed to reach its destination despite the ambush, the eighth of its kind in the area since the start of the year. Attacks on aid workers and humanitarian operations are recurrent in several parts of the country where armed groups operate.
