Silent starvation in Chad's Lake Region
Description: The conflict between Boko Haram and the military operations to defeat it that began in Nigeria have spread to Niger, Chad and Cameroon, causing one of the worst humanitarian crises in Africa. In Chad, 350,000 people are in danger of starvation due to failing food supplies, losing their animals, their lands and crops, and being unable to carry out activities like fishing. The massive movements of people and difficulties in growing crops or distributing aid have left more than 8 million people on the brink of starvation. Oxfam is there, YOU can help: https://www.oxfam.org/en/emergencies/west-africa-crisis We provide people with emergency food support and cash and vouchers so they can buy food from local markets, clean water and better sanitation, including constructing showers and toilets. We are distributing food and cooking equipment, as well as providing seeds and tools to help traders and farmers.

Video games that protect civilians
Description: Like many other soldiers around the world, these Ukrainian army officers are learning the laws of war by planning simulated operations on a virtual battlefield. The ICRC uses this method in a number of countries. As Michael Pymble, an ICRC armed forces delegate, explains: "When we can show them what the terrain looks like in 3D – where things are, where the military objectives are in relation to civilian objects, where people are – and they’re able to see that in 3D, it just makes it far more accessible for them, and the results are much better in the planning exercises that we give them.” AV443C_long-version

Ghana Breaks the Chains on Mental Health
Description: The head of Ghana’s Mental Health Authority announced that as of October 10, World Mental Health Day, the country’s ban on shackling – in place since 2012 – will finally be properly enforced. While progress at Nyankusami is important, it’s just one of many camps where people with mental health conditions are shackled. Much more needs to be done. Human Rights Watch and other groups are now urging the government to invest in community mental health services, so other families won’t resort to chaining their loved ones.

The Rohingya Crisis in 90 Seconds
