Description: 6 pays, 90 projets, 11 000 victimes de violences sexuelles, à 90% de sexe féminin, en majorité âgées de moins de 18 ans.
Ces données de 2015 illustrent un problème majeur auxquels sont confrontées les équipes MSF, mais elles ne disent rien du traumatisme et des milliers de vies brisées par ces agressions.
Que peuvent faire les équipes MSF pour leur venir en aide, et les protéger si besoin ?
Dans la clinique de Mathare, au Kenya, les portes sont ouvertes 24h/24 et 7 jours sur 7. Située au milieu de bidonvilles de la capitale, Nairobi, c’est le plus gros projet de MSF dédié aux victimes de violences sexuelles.

Description: Half of Kenya is affected by severe drought and the government has declared a national drought emergency. The pastoralist Turkana have been particularly hard hit and it is women who often bear the burden of collecting water.
With EU humanitarian funding, OXFAM has introduced an innovative way of ensuring access to water for drought-stricken communities. The E-wallet - an electronic card loaded with cash - provides beneficiaries relief when natural water sources have dried up and there’s no cash to buy water. The system has been rolled in Kenya’s Turkana county.

Description: Over 3 million people in Kenya face starvation after three consecutive failed rains left almost half of the country’s counties in need of food assistance. Most of the affected populations live in pastoralist lands where livestock is the main source of livelihood. Since the beginning of the year, many families have lost all or almost all of their livestock.
In February 2017, the Kenyan government declared the drought a "national disaster" and appealed for international help to deal with the crisis. In an emergency response to the crisis, the European Commission allocated €29 million in funding to humanitarian partners, providing cash assistance for food and providing critical nutrition supplies for infants and lactating women.
With part of this funding, the Kenya Red Cross rolled out a cash transfer programme to the most vulnerable people in the arid north, giving out €30 per month to needy families.
In recent years, the European Commission in Kenya, while strengthening coordination between humanitarian and development departments, has supported partners to help communities and authorities prepare for and respond to disasters

Description: Drought in northern Kenya have left some 2.6 million people in northern Kenya struggling to find enough to eat. Women and girls in Turkana County, northern Kenya, are being exploited in exchange for money to buy food. The IRC is seeing an increase in gender-based violence, early and forced marriage, and women and girls engaging in transactional sex as a direct consequence of food insecurity caused by drought in the region.
The International Rescue Committee helps people whose lives and livelihoods are shattered by conflict and disaster to survive, recover and gain control of their future.
