From 27 to 28 November, Handicap International (HI) is organising a regional conference on the bombing of civilians in Maputo, the capital of Mozambique. This conference will bring together some 20 States, 10 African civil society organisations and international NGOs. The goal is to raise awareness of this vital challenge among African countries and to encourage them to take action on the world stage to protect civilians from the devastating impact of the use of explosive weapons in populated areas.
What does this conference aim to achieve
Since violence erupted in South Sudan in 2014, more than a million people have fled to safety in Uganda. South Sudanese refugees have been warmly welcomed by the African nation. When refugees arrive, they are given vaccinations, a warm meal, even a plot of land and the resources to begin constructing their new home. And the support doesn’t stop there: CARE is training women leaders in the community to form savings groups, start businesses, and be healthcare workers.

Despite consolidated efforts by humanitarian actors to avert famine, the situation in these countries is, according to FAO, still only one step below famine.
