Last week, the Ebola outbreak in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) reached a sobering milestone by becoming the second largest Ebola outbreak in history, second only to the 2014–16 epidemic in West Africa. There were 453 total cases and 268 deaths in the affected provinces of North Kivu and Ituri, according to the latest World Health Organization (WHO) situation report issued December 5.

MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT
As wars dragged on in many parts of the world, huge numbers of people struggled to meet even their most basic needs in 2017.

If humanitarian organizations cannot rise to the challenge and provide greater relief and protection, even more people could suffer.
