Failure to take action now means that the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) will not be met, undermining the credibility of the international community and leaving millions to die unnecessarily.

North Korea is one of the most repressive authoritarian states in the world. In his sixth year in power, Kim Jong-un—the third leader of the dynastic Kim family and head of the ruling Workers’ Party of Korea (WPK) who exercises almost total political control—intensified repressive measures; tightened domestic restrictions on travel and unauthorized cross-border travel with China; and punished North Koreans for contacting the outside world.
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.
