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"
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.
This regional inter-agency appeal aims at mobilizing the emergency response for the influx of refugees from the Central African Republic (CAR) since December 2013 to the Republics of Cameroon and Chad, the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and the Republic of Congo (RoC).
Immediate priorities to support the preservation of lives include the provision of food, individual and family protection, health and nutrition, water and sanitation and shelter.

For Matipaka, the last 16 years have been a struggle. For 14 of those years she had to care for her children while her husband, an army battalion commander, was away fighting. “When he was a soldier I was left alone to take care of the children. Often six or nine months would pass when we didn’t see each other. The longest we spent apart was one year.”
During these years Matipaka would survive by finding work where she could and eventually she had to sell the one asset the family owned. “We had 7 goats before he left but I sold them one by one just to survive.”
