East Africa Crisis Appeal

Disasters Emergency Committee

Hunger on a massive scale is looming across East Africa. If we don’t act now, it will get much worse. Drought and conflict have left 16 million people on the brink of starvation and in urgent need of food, water and medical treatment. People are already dying in South Sudan and Somalia. In Kenya, the government has declared a national emergency and Ethiopia is battling a new wave of drought following the strongest El Nino on record. Women, children and older people are suffering the most; more than 800,000 children under five are severely malnourished. Without immediate treatment, they are at risk of starving to death.  DEC member charities are already delivering life-saving assistance in all affected countries. But, they need more money to help reduce the scale and severity of the crisis.

DFID Iraq Humanitarian and Responsible Transition 2019-2022

UK - Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO)

In 2014, Daesh’s expansion across Iraq set ablaze a major humanitarian crisis, compelling the UK to respond to acute needs, and also to join the counter-Daesh global coalition. Daesh has now been defeated as a territory-holding force, and increasing numbers of people have returned home. However, the situation is precarious, and complex humanitarian needs remain for many. From 2019-2022, DFID Iraq will respond to the acute needs of the most vulnerable, address the complex needs of high-risk protracted caseloads, promote responsible transition to national-led efforts, and fund enabling activities crucial to achieving this. The funding envelope for this programme reflects that DFID Iraq is planning for the best, but preparing for the worst – a seemingly optimistic trajectory one month may belie a precarious situation the next. DFID Iraq will monitor any deterioration, setting trigger points to indicate if or when we will approach ministers for any critical change in approach.

Cyclone Idai Appeal

Disasters Emergency Committee

Cyclone Idai swept through Mozambique, Malawi and Zimbabwe leaving behind a trail of destruction, killing at least 960 people and leaving around 3 million in need of help. Strong winds and widespread flooding ripped apart roads, bridges, houses, schools and health facilities and submerged vast swathes of agricultural land. As flood levels recede, work to clear debris, reopen roads and reconnect electricity and water supplies is underway. Some people who fled their homes as flood waters rose are returning home but more than 230,000 remain displaced across three countries and are living in communal sites such as schools and churches. A growing number of cholera cases have been confirmed and there is a high risk of outbreaks of other waterborne diseases as supplying clean water remains a significant challenge. The aid effort is fully underway and DEC member charities are working closely with national partners to support government-led relief efforts. They are prioritising the delivery of clean water, building toilets and handwashing facilities to tackle the outbreak of cholera. They are also delivering emergency shelter materials and blankets, food such as pulses and maize flour, and urgent health assistance. Focusing on longer-term food security and rehabilitation of livelihoods is paramount and some members are already providing seeds and tools to communities.
