Gaps & Challenges

Nakivale, one of the oldest refugee settlements in Uganda, was opened in 1958 and officially established as a settlement in 1960. The settlement hosts more than 100,000 refugees from Burundi, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Rwanda, Somalia, Sudan, and South Sudan. During the Burundian crisis in 2015, the population of the settlement greatly increased. Markets are bustling and food is available for purchase, but many refugees struggle to afford basic items and face serious protection issues when utilizing the land near the host community.

In the hot and dusty county of Turkana in northwestern Kenya lies the sprawling Kakuma refugee camp.

Informal settlements, constructed mainly using a variety of materials such as iron sheets, mud, or traditional thatching, dot the landscape and offer residents relief from the sweltering heat, which can sometimes reach 40 degrees Celsius during the day and only drop to the low 30s at night.

Besides the harsh climate, the camp lies in an area which is dry, windswept and prone to dust storms.

report CARE

Pour la seconde année, l’ONG CARE publie un rapport recensant les dix crises humanitaires les moins relayées par les médias. Sept des dix pays cités dans le premier rapport « Souffrir en silence », y figurent cette année encore. CARE dénonce l’inaction des hommes politiques qui négligent délibérément ces crises humanitaires.

"Ce n’est pas parce que ces crises ne font pas la une des médias que nous devons les oublier"
