Description of the Disaster
The migration phenomenon has increased worldwide in recent years due to armed conflict, violence, economic crises and the desire for family reunification. It is believed that 3.4 per cent of the world's population is living outside its country of origin; this represents more than 247 million people.

When Hurricane Stan hit Guatemala and El Salvador, women organized emergency evacuations and set up feeding stations. As Hurricane Mitch pummeled Nicaragua and Honduras, triggering flash floods and mudslides, women began counting the missing.
More recently, amid deadly and unpredictable violence in Mogadishu, women are setting up tiny health clinics.
