Last year more than 13 million people were starving in the Horn of Africa. People were driven to leave their homes in search of water and food.
Dan Church Aid, a member of ACT Alliance and our other partners were immediately ready with emergency relief. Thanks to the long-term commitment the Alliance has had in the region, this assistance has saved many lives.
The impact of Armed Violence, whether in the context of crime or full-blown conflict, is widely acknowledged by states and civil society as a major constraint to poverty reduction and the enjoyment of human rights. This programme policy aims to set out how DanChurchAid (DCA) can contribute to efforts to reduce armed violence through focusing on the demand, supply and misuse of small arms and light weapons (SALW).
