(Kinshasa, 10 April 2018) – CARE International is calling on donors to significantly increase their commitment to the humanitarian crisis in the DRC ahead of this week’s pledging conference taking place in Geneva.

Labelled a “silent humanitarian tsunami”, as the humanitarian situation in the DRC deteriorates dramatically, this week’s meeting will seek to raise $1.68 billion, nearly four times the amount secured in 2017.

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"

There is a place on earth where every day, on average, over 5,000 people have to flee their homes. There is a country in which nearly half of all young children are malnourished. Do you know these places? If the answer is “no”, you are not alone.

Yet telling the world about people who are facing their darkest hours is more important than ever.

Geneva, January 22, 2018 - Today the international aid organization CARE launched a new report highlighting 2017's ten most under-reported humanitarian crises. The report, "Suffering in Silence", found that the humanitarian situation in North Korea received the least media attention globally. While much media focus has been on nuclear brinkmanship, the humanitarian situation has been overlooked. Other crises that rarely made the headlines were Eritrea, Burundi, Sudan, Central African Republic, DRC, Mali, Lake Chad Basin (Niger, Cameroon, Chad), Vietnam and Peru.

The year 2015 marked the 10th anniversary of the Global Shelter Cluster, the inter-agency coordination mechanism for shelter response. During these ten years, coordination has improved in consistency, shelter responses have grown in scale, and there are more people with experience in shelter programming, but people continue to lose their dwellings and be displaced due to conflict and natural disasters. Global humanitarian shelter needs continue to greatly exceed the capacity and resources to respond.

By Michael Kleinman, Regional Advocacy Advisor, East and Central Africa

Occasionally I realize that I've changed. The sights and stories that once would have left me unable to sleep now pass almost without comment - the suffering caused by conflict in Darfur or elsewhere in the region almost never strikes a personal chord any more; it's simply part of the job. It's a sense of detachment that serves a purpose, a way of protecting oneself.

But sometimes it's impossible to keep that reserve, to maintain that sense of detachment.

report CARE

The nations of central Africa - Congo, Rwanda, Uganda and others - are currently embroiled in a fifth year of regional war. Victims of the ongoing fighting are tens of thousands of refugees, most from Congo and Burundi. Neighboring Tanzania has accepted the bulk of these refugees, and agencies like CARE are charged both with sheltering and sustaining thousands of people in refugee camps in the west of the country, as well as protecting Tanzania's fragile environment.
