Surrounded by a region in conflict, Ethiopia is Africa's second largest refugee hosting country, after Uganda. In addition, conflict, drought and flooding causes displacement inside the country. How are these refugees welcomed?
In January 2018, Ethiopia hosts close to 900,000 refugees, and the number is growing. They are mainly from neighbouring South Sudan, Eritrea, Sudan and Somalia. More than 1.5 million people in Ethiopia are internally displaced.
In 2017, there were at least 701 attacks on hospitals, health workers, patients, and ambulances in 23 countries in conflict around the world. More than 101 health workers and 293 patients and others are reported to have died as a result of these attacks
Despite a decrease in rainfall, flooding continues in East Africa.
Due to poor rainfall since November western Namibia is in a severe drought. Conditions may worsen as limited rain is forecast next week.
In southwestern Madagascar, an uneven and inadequate rainfall distribution since the start of the rainfall season has resulted in severe drought. Drought conditions are likely to persist.

Despite calls to reform and “localise” the response to humanitarian crises, two thirds of the money went to just 13 major groups
The numbers are in: 2017 was another costly year for humanitarian aid donors, but despite huge needs in Yemen, Syria, South Sudan, and elsewhere, funding levels have stagnated.

NEW YORK, le 15 mai 2018 – « Tout au long des quatre premiers mois de l’année, de la République centrafricaine au Soudan du Sud, de la Syrie à l’Afghanistan, dans les régions touchées par des conflits, les enfants ont continué d’être la cible d’attaques incessantes.
Étrangères aux remords, et encore plus à l’obligation de rendre compte, les parties aux conflits continuent de bafouer ouvertement l’une des règles les plus élémentaires de la guerre : la protection des enfants.
