Thursday, September 15, 2011 — The “Lost Boys of Sudan” have some of the most heart-wrenching stories in Africa. Thanks to the Richmond chapter of the American Red Cross, one of the 20,000 boys who were orphaned or estranged from their families during the Sudanese civil war has been reunited with relatives after years of searching.
Manyang was separated from his family at age three. Initially cared for by another Sudanese family, he lived in a refugee camp for 10 years before coming to the United States in 2005 and settling in northern Virginia.

While many global emergencies never make the headlines, the international Red Cross and Red Crescent network continuously works to alleviate the suffering caused by these forgotten disasters.
"Silent crises, like floods, food shortages and disease outbreaks, are slow to make news, but cause significant humanitarian needs," said Tracy Reines, director of the International Response Operations Center with the American Red Cross.

WASHINGTON, DC, September 26, 2007 - The American Red Cross is supporting three relief workers who are joining the international response to flooding in Africa. Extremely heavy rains and flooding have affected more than 1.5 million people in at least 18 countries, driving thousands from their homes, destroying crops and displacing livestock.
Using materials available locally, Red Cross and Red Crescent workers constructed emergency shelters to house thousands who lost their homes to flooding.
