Acción Humanitaria para la Infancia 2013
A primera vista, Fatima aparentaba tener unos 4 o 5 meses. Pero, en realidad, acababa de cumplir su primer año de vida. Estaba entre los 126.000 niños con desnutrición aguda grave tratados en uno de los 425 centros nutricionales establecidos por el Ministerio de Salud de Chad en 2012 como parte de la expansión de la atención en todo el Sahel. Se llegó a cientos de miles de niños con la atención necesaria para salvar sus vidas. Tristemente, no se pudo llegar a otros muchos.

Renforcer la résilience : l'UNICEF lance le rapport sur l'« Action humanitaire pour les enfants 2011 »
Le rapport demande 1,4 milliard de dollars é.-U. pour répondre aux crises les plus extrêmes
Par Chris Niles
NEW YORK, états-Unis, 7 mars 2011 - L'UNICEF a lancé un appel de 1,4 milliard de dollars é.-U. pour répondre à des crises humanitaires de plus en plus graves.
In 2011, tens of millions of people will need emergency aid to survive. Conflicts and natural disasters have cut them off from their homes, their livelihoods, and access to essentials like drinking water and health care. They already suffer or are imminently threatened by malnourishment, disease, or violence. Most are poor people who have few if any means to cope with these traumas.
This report covers the period 1 January to 31 December 2009.
Programme purpose: The overarching aim for this security programme is to create an effective security culture within the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) that will enable Red Cross Red Crescent personnel to operate safely and securely.
Programme summary: The primary role of the unit has been to provide advice on security to the IFRC's senior management, and to ensure that security management is adequate and functioning at all times.
WFP is deeply concerned that the scourge of hunger and malnutrition is on the increase across the developing world, with now over a billion hungry people on the planet. The global economic downturn is exacerbating the impact of the food crisis and increasing food insecurity for the world's most vulnerable people, reversing progress toward the Millennium Development Goals.
In 2007, natural and man-made disasters continued to take a toll on the lives of people.
