Annual report: Review of 2010 - a year of disasters: the challenge of reconstruction in Pakistan and Haiti
Bonn, 15.04.2011. Since last October more than 250,000 people have returned from the north of Sudan to the south of the country. In January 2011 many of them voted in the areas where they used to live for a new and independent state, and now they want to build a new livelihood for themselves in their old homeland. Welthungerhilfe will invest in their future and will help to create better living conditions for the returnees. Two projects are providing support over the coming weeks for refugees who have returned from the north to Bahr el Ghazal Province.
Welthungerhilfe is continuing its operation unabated in Sudan. It does not belong to the organisations which have been requested to terminate either the projects in Darfur or to stop all projects in the country and to withdraw their international employees from Sudan. Welthungerhilfe is continuing to implement the projects in Darfur using local personnel and in cooperation with an indigenous partner organisation. Food is still being distributed there to refugees and needy families residing in the region.
Bonn/Khartoum, 27.10.2008. After two months of suspension of food distribution in rural areas of North Darfur Welthungerhilfe resumes its activities. "We are confronted with a situation where there is no other option than to resume." Johan van der Kamp, Regional Director of Welthungerhilfe in Sudan, says. "People are in dire need of food and as long as we still have at least one option to deliver we are committed to do so.
Bonn/Khartoum, 27.08.2008. Following two major incidents during the last five weeks, Welthungerhilfe is having to halt its distribution of supplies to the 450,000 people affected by civil war in northern Darfur. Armed gangs held up Welthungerhilfe staff and threatened to kill them, while seven trucks bringing supplies to people in the rebel zone have been stolen.
"In the light of the increasingly precarious security situation, the risk to our staff is simply too high," explains Johan van der Kamp, Welthungerhilfe's Regional Director in the Sudanese capital, Khartoum.
Five years of war in Darfur / 13th April: "Global Day for Sudan"
Bonn / Khartum, 11.04.08 - Soaring food prices, a further deterioration in the security situation, political deadlock, the approaching rainy season - and in the midst of all this, two million refugees who have been abandoned by the international community. On the fifth anniversary of the outbreak of the war, Welthungerhilfe draws attention once again to the dire situation in Darfur.
"We need a Dalai Lama for Darfur," says Hans-Joachim Preuß, Secretary General of Welthungerhilfe.
Situation in Haiti: an example of deprivation in developing countries
Bonn, 10.4.2008 - Welthungerhilfe is warning against the effects of the global increase in food prices for developing countries. In the past few days, serious rioting has erupted in Haiti, among other places, after the prices of food and petrol doubled in the past twelve months.
Khartum, 26.10.2007. Welthungerhilfe (German Agro Action) has endorsed its concerns about the safety of refugees and its own aid workers. For some weeks now - in the run-up to the peace talks for Darfur in Libya - an increasing number of violent attacks have occurred in the crisis region.
"We are concerned about the people who are suffering under the disastrous security situation," said Hans-Joachim Preuß, Secretary General of Welthungerhilfe in Khartum. Preuß is currently on a fact-finding tour of the region.
Bonn/Khartum, 4.9.2007. On the occasion of UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon's visit to Sudan, Deutsche Welthungerhilfe (German Agro Action) stresses the urgent need to promote peace talks as well as deploy UN troops in the country. Without a political solution, it says, even the "largest UN peacekeeping mission in the world" will be ineffectual.
Bonn, 1.8.2007. Deutsche Welthungerhilfe (German Agro Action) welcomes the new UN Security Council resolution to send peacekeeping troops into the war-ravaged Darfur region. Last night members of the Security Council agreed to back a force consisting of up to 26,000 African Union and UN troops. "At last a clear decision has been made," said Welthungerhilfe's Regional Director in Sudan, Johan van der Kamp, who welcomed the move. "The last few months have been dogged by negotiations and talks.
Bonn, 25.6.2007. As representatives meet today in Paris for a summit on the crisis in Darfur, Deutsche Welthungerhilfe (German Agro Action) is calling for the immediate resumption of peace talks. "What peace do the new UN troops plan to keep?" forewarns Welthungerhilfe's Regional Director in Sudan, Johan van der Kamp. It is imperative that all parties are brought to the negotiating table before UN and AU (African Union) peacekeepers engage in Darfur.
The Sudanese government recently green-lighted the deployment of around 20,000 additional UN troops to the province.
Bonn/Khartoum, 27.04.2007. Following the decision of the German Bundestag to extend the Bundeswehr's assignment in southern Sudan as part of the United Nations' Mission in Sudan (Unmis), Deutsche Welthungerhilfe (German Agro Action) points out that conditions in southern Sudan continue to be chaotic.
"The situation is by no means as dramatic as it is in the war-torn Darfur in western Sudan," says Johan van der Kamp, Welthungerhilfe's regional coordinator in Sudan.
Bonn, 23.04.2007. On the occasion of the meeting between the EU Ministers of Foreign Affairs with the UN Special Envoy for Darfur, Eliasson, Welthungerhilfe (German Agro Action)is calling on the EU and the UN to commit itself to resuming the peace process in the western Sudanese hot spot.
"The peace agreement reached almost a year ago was endorsed de facto by a single signatory on the side of the rebels, "reminds Hans-Joachim Preuss, Welthungerhilfe's Secretary General. "It was therefore doomed to failure.
Deutsche Welthungerhilfe (German Agro Action) is critical of Sudan's announcement that it has reached an agreement on the troubled Sudanese region, Darfur. "The Sudanese government is just playing for time", says Hans-Joachim Preuss, Welthungerhilfe's Secretary General.
This is the evalution report for the Project for Food Security and Peaceful Development in Lagawa (Nuba Mountains) which started in July 2004. The first phase of the Project was finished at the end of June 2007. The Project was mainly financed by the Federal Republic of Germany and implemented by Deutsche Welthungerhilfe/German Agro Action (DWHH/ GAA).
Bonn, 17.11.2006. Following the deterioration of the security situation in Sudan's crisis-stricken province of Darfur, Deutsche Welthungerhilfe (German Agro Action) has evacuated 18 of its relief workers. The workers had been working in a food distribution centre in Birmaza on Sudan's border with Chad.
"Current fighting is cross-border and is threatening to destabilise the entire region," said Jörg Heinrich, Welthungerhilfe's Programme Manager for Sudan.
