Forgotten Humanitarian Crises Around The World

From Afghanistan to Ukraine, Syria to Somalia, families are forced to flee their homes every day because of conflict, natural disaster, and insecurity.

Last month, the number of refugees globally reached 100 million for the first time ever.

Away from the media spotlight, some of these refugees are being forgotten.

When a new crisis appears, other crises are neglected. This puts humanitarian funding for them at risk.

Relief International refuses to overlook the families caught up in these crises.

Rohingya

Persecuted for decades, the Rohingya people are the world’s largest stateless population, despite living in Myanmar for centuries. They are denied nationality, and with that lack access to basic rights such as education, health care, employment and freedom of movement.

In Bangladesh, we

South Sudan

Ten years after independence and three years after the signing of the revitalized peace agreement, people in South Sudan continue to face devastating humanitarian conditions caused by conflict, public health challenges, and climate-related emergencies such as flooding and localized drought.

We provide healthcare across the Upper Nile region, including

  • Treating children with severe malnutrition,
  • Helping women give birth safely,
  • Treating malaria and pneumonia,
  • Training local healthcare workers to support others in their community.

Yemen

In war-torn Yemen, over 24 million people – 80% of the population – are in need of humanitarian aid and protection, over half of which are children. The UN predicts 19 million Yemenis will go hungry in the coming months, and our teams are seeing high levels of acute malnutrition in children under five years old.

As the hunger crisis worsens, we provide

  • Monthly food assistance to tens of thousands of households,
  • Health consultations where we check and treat children suffering from acute malnutrition.

 

We are committed to supporting communities affected by crisis day in, day out, 24/7 in the 16 countries where we work.

But we can only continue to do this with support from donors like you.

With your help, we can ensure families facing crisis in these countries are not forgotten.
