Development and Peace has raised $6.3 million for humanitarian aid for the Horn of Africa, which is currently experiencing the worst drought in the region in 60 years.
Somalia has been hit particularly hard by the current drought affecting the Horn of Africa. Conflict and the absence of a legitimate government have made the impacts of the drought far more difficult to cope with. There are six regions where communities are currently experiencing famine and an estimated 750,000 people are at risk of death. There are also close to 1 million Somalis that are now living as refugees in the four neighbouring countries of Kenya, Ethiopia, Djibouti and Eritrea, and more continue to make the perilous migration to get across the Somali border.
Ethiopia is currently hosting thousands of Somali refugees that are fleeing famine and conflict in their own country, but in addition many Ethiopian communities suffering devastating impacts from the drought that is currently affecting the Horn of Africa and can’t be forgotten.
Moins de quatre ans avant 2015, date limite fixée par les chefs d’État du monde en l’an 2000 pour réaliser les Objectifs du millénaire pour le développement, c’est‐à‐dire éradiquer l’extrême pauvreté de la planète et réduire la faim de moitié, une nouvelle crise alimentaire dans la Corne de l’Afrique met en péril la vie de 12 millions de personnes.
Less than four years from the 2015 Millennium Development Goals deadline - the date that world leaders gave themselves in 2000 to eradicate extreme poverty from the planet and reduce hunger by half - a new food crisis in the Horn of Africa is threatening the lives of 12 million people.
The current food crisis in the Horn of Africa is one that has been slowly building over the last few years. Several factors have made it increasingly difficult for the people of the region to have access to sufficient food. After nearly three consecutive years of poor rains and drought conditions, people have been suffering from chronic hunger, as they try to cope. The fragility of life has been rendered all the more precarious by rising food costs and conflict, particularly as livelihoods are destroyed by ruined crops and dying cattle.
TORONTO / April 7, 2006 - In response to a severe drought in Kenya and neighbouring countries, particularly Ethiopia and Somalia, DEVELOPMENT AND PEACE is providing $80,000 in emergency aid to Caritas Kenya to help communities affected by famine.
The $80,000 forms part of a $1.4 million, nine-month Caritas Internationalis project to distribute food and drought-resistant seeds to 45,000 people.
Montréal, le 6 janvier 2005 - Les dons recueillis par DéVELOPPEMENT ET PAIX au nom des victimes des tsunamis ont franchi le cap du million de dollars.
«Et cette somme va certainement doubler», estime Richard Renshaw, le directeur général intérimaire de l'organisme, «puisque les évêques catholiques du Canada ont lancé un appel demandant à toutes les paroisses du pays de tenir une collecte spéciale, dimanche prochain, 9 janvier, afin de venir en aide à la population d'Asie».
