Message from our Regional Director
Despite numerous humanitarian challenges in 2017 in Africa, there were also a number of heart-warming accomplishments. A case in point, was when a local response of Red Crescent teams—and other partners—curbed Somalia's cholera outbreak through the power of local volunteers and shared international expertise. In terms of support to our members, 36 National Societies were able to kick start initiatives that built their capacity through seed grants.
BESOINS HUMANITAIRES ET CHIFFRES CLÉS
Aperçu de la situation
Heavy rains and flooding affect 142,000 people across Sudan
Fuel shortages and access constraints hinder delivery of food assistance
Deteriorating economic conditions lead to acute food insecurity and malnutrition
The Lake Chad Basin Crisis remains one of the largest humanitarian emergencies in the world and continues to affect the North-East of Nigeria, the Far North Region of Cameroon, the Lac Region of Chad and the Diffa Region in Niger. Around 17 Million people live in the affected areas across the four countries. More than 2.4 million people remain displaced.
Summary of major revisions made to emergency plan of action:
The Lake Chad Basin is facing the worst cholera outbreak since 2010. With more than 38,000 cases and 845 deaths officially reported in Cameroon, Niger and Nigeria since the beginning of 2018, it is 15 times more than the average cholera caseload over the past four years.

WORKING WTH PARTNERS
L’Est du Tchad (Ennedi Est, Ouaddai, Sila et Wadi Fira) est affecté par une crise multidimensionnelle où l’insécurité alimentaire, la malnutrition et la présence prolongée de réfugiés soudanais s’ajoutent à un contexte de faible développement et d’accès limité aux services sociaux de base.
