Pour la seconde année, l’ONG CARE publie un rapport recensant les dix crises humanitaires les moins relayées par les médias. Sept des dix pays cités dans le premier rapport « Souffrir en silence », y figurent cette année encore. CARE dénonce l’inaction des hommes politiques qui négligent délibérément ces crises humanitaires.
"Ce n’est pas parce que ces crises ne font pas la une des médias que nous devons les oublier"
Geneva, January 22, 2018 - Today the international aid organization CARE launched a new report highlighting 2017's ten most under-reported humanitarian crises. The report, "Suffering in Silence", found that the humanitarian situation in North Korea received the least media attention globally. While much media focus has been on nuclear brinkmanship, the humanitarian situation has been overlooked. Other crises that rarely made the headlines were Eritrea, Burundi, Sudan, Central African Republic, DRC, Mali, Lake Chad Basin (Niger, Cameroon, Chad), Vietnam and Peru.
Concerns for hundreds of unaccompanied children sleeping rough in Greece this winter
NGOs launch roadmap for handover of refugee response to Greek Government
More than 2,000 unaccompanied children are on the waiting list for safe shelters in Greece, according to a new report by 12 organisations. The chronic shortage of accommodation for children is just one of the gaps in services that is worsening as the Greek Government prepares to take full control of the refugee response.
A MESSAGE FROM OUR CEO
Around the world, CARE celebrated its anniversary in 2016, remembering that day 70 years ago when the first CARE Packages arrived in Europe, bringing food and other essential survival supplies.
Today, a CARE Package looks very different.
Of the 225 million women with unmet need for family planning, many live in areas affected by conflict or natural disasters. Delivering family planning services in these settings is critical to ensuring countries meet their FP2020 goals, as well as to fulfilling the sexual and reproductive health rights of the more than 32 million women and girls in need of humanitarian aid.
This briefing paper puts forward CARE’s key messages and policy asks towards ensuring universal access to family planning in crisis-affected settings.
London, UK, July 11, 2017 — Humanitarian organisations welcome the transition to Greek Government management of all aspects of service provision for asylum seekers on the Greek islands and for unaccompanied children throughout Greece.
The year 2015 marked the 10th anniversary of the Global Shelter Cluster, the inter-agency coordination mechanism for shelter response. During these ten years, coordination has improved in consistency, shelter responses have grown in scale, and there are more people with experience in shelter programming, but people continue to lose their dwellings and be displaced due to conflict and natural disasters. Global humanitarian shelter needs continue to greatly exceed the capacity and resources to respond.
It is one year since the introduction of Europe’s flawed migration policies to close borders along the Western Balkan route and return migrants and refugees to Turkey, leaving thousands stranded in Greece. This update provides an overview of the current situation in Greece, and sets out what eight national and international responding agencies see as the most urgent issues to address and the major concerns with Europe’s response to this crisis.
CARE has made a long-term commitment to strengthening gender equality and women’s voice in both emergency and development contexts. In support of this commitment, CARE’s humanitarian and emergency goal is to have a lasting impact on the needs of poor women, girls, boys, and men affected by humanitarian crises, and specifically to reach and empower women and girls who are disproportionately affected in a humanitarian context.
La situation des réfugiés et migrants dans les Balkans se détériore rapidement. Le nombre d'arrivées ne cesse d'augmenter alors que le froid et la pluie frappent la région et que les frontières se ferment. CARE apporte une aide d'urgence aux réfugiés : distribution de nourriture et vêtements chauds, diffusion d'information et accès à de l'électricité pour recharger les téléphones portables.
Une catastrophe humanitaire
New Asia Impact Report provides greater donor accountability
CARE today launched the Asia Impact Report which provides a review of the impact of CARE’s work in Asia from 2005 to 2010. The report is the first of its kind in Australia and is part of CARE’s commitment to transparency, which is important for the 87 per cent of Australian donors who want to know more about how donations are spent.
Humanitarian aid is largely guided by anecdotes rather than evidence. Currently, the humanitarian system shows significant weaknesses in data collection, analysis and response in all stages of a crisis or emergency. As a result, the present humanitarian system is much less evidence-driven than it should be and than it would like to be.
