Last year more than 13 million people were starving in the Horn of Africa. People were driven to leave their homes in search of water and food.
Dan Church Aid, a member of ACT Alliance and our other partners were immediately ready with emergency relief. Thanks to the long-term commitment the Alliance has had in the region, this assistance has saved many lives.

With 159 countries having joined the Landmine Ban Treaty sine it came into force in 1997, it can already be considered a huge success in terms of international law. But with three countries laying new landmines in 2011, it is clear that the work of ridding the world of landmines is far from over.
This was the conclusion of a meeting of state parties to the Mine Ban Treaty that took place in Phnom Penh, Cambodia on 27 November – 2 December 2012, at which DanChurchAid (DCA) also took part.
The impact of Armed Violence, whether in the context of crime or full-blown conflict, is widely acknowledged by states and civil society as a major constraint to poverty reduction and the enjoyment of human rights.

Copenhagen, 29/12/2006: DanChurchAid fears that Ethiopian military intervention in Somalia will result in prolonged fighting and thus many civil victims - and thousands of new refugees in the war-torn country on the Horn of Africa.
"We follow the situation by the hour. We fear that thousands of people will flee from the war to neighbouring countries. Therefore we are searching for relief items on the international market in order to be prepared for an immediate operation," says Henrik Stubkjær, DanChurchAid Secretary General.
