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.

Twelve Red Cross volunteers gather on a porch in Namitotelane village, a rural area of Nampula, Mozambique, to discuss the challenges they face in preventing the spread of cholera in their communities. These volunteers are working to educate people about the disease in an environment where misinformation can lead to violence. During the meeting, they pause to remember two Red Cross volunteers who were tragically killed by a panicked mob during a similar outbreak in 2009.
Two Red Cross volunteers were killed between 25 and 26 February and a further seven injured following riots in Nampula Province, Mozambique.
The volunteers were disseminating public health information in the midst of a cholera outbreak that has so far claimed 77 lives and infected almost 9,500.
