Facing #famine, girls and women bear the heaviest burden. #foodsecurity #fourfamines #conflict #facingfamine
It's World Humanitarian Day on 19 August! We're celebrating the bravery of medics who work in tough and dangerous places. This is Patricia, a nurse who volunteered for us this summer in Kenya, where our outreach teams are going to remote villages everyday to treat families suffering from malnutrition. #worldhumanitarianday #humanitarian #aidworker #medecinsdumonde #doctorsoftheworld #kenya #isiolo #marsabit #fightfamine #fightingfamine #facingfamine #drought #malnutrition

Hardly news anymore, #wartorn  #yemen is #facingfamine and #fightingfamine. Recently the #yemencholeraoutbreak is also making victims, many of whom are children and women. - "The worst humanitarian crisis the World have since the foundation of the @unitednations" (UN). The violence turmoil escalated from clashes since the Spring of 2011, to violent war in March 2015. The result is that most of the foreign supply of food has stopped and people are hungry. Starving to death.  From the 27.7 million Yemenis, about 18 million can't feed adequately. Over 4.5 million need services to treat or prevent malnutrition. About 14.5 million Yemenis are in need of WASH - Water, Sanitation and Hygiene assistance (all according to the UN-OCHA, in March 2017). Now, from an "unprecedented"outbreak, as the WHO - World Health Organization pointed out, an epidemic of Cholera is feared by everyone as the suspected cases rises today above the 450.000 and the associated deaths are already more than 1900. We are also working for educating towards hygiene and prevention of cholera as well as the distribution of hygiene kits.  Vision Hope International staff knows it. Since 2002 VHI works for development and human relief of communities in #yemen. We are making a difference and YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE TOO ! When you like us; When you follow us; When you share our pictures here or on https://www.facebook.com/VisionHopeInt/, you are not remaining indifferent. We have a solid group of volunteers and perhaps you can join them too.  Donations in 2016: - Yemen: 71% - Tunisia: 1.5% - Jordania: 6.7% - Syria: 16.9% - Headquarters Germany: 3.9%.

Im Oktober 2016 wurde im Jemen die Ausbreitung von Cholera identifiziert - ein kleines Zeichen dessen, was kommen sollte. Die Antwort gegen die Krankheit wurde dann auf beschränkte Gebiete des Landes konzentriert.  Mit dem Jahr 2017, sind Hungersnot und einem zunehmenden Verlust des Zugangs zu primären Bedürfnissen Dienstleistungen wie sauberes Wasser, Gesundheit und Bildung, Alle 10 Minuten starb im Jemen ein Kind - jetzt ist es ein Kind alle 7 Minuten!! Aber bis dahin, war eine Hauptursache eine schwere und akute Unterernährung: 462.000 Kinder unter fünf Jahren waren betroffen. Die Situation im Jemen wurde von den Vereinten Nationen als die "schlimmste humanitäre Krise" seit ihrer Gründung.  Jetzt kehrte Cholera zurück und der Cholera-Ausbruch wurde zu einer Epidemie. Seit Beginn des Ausbruchs im April, Fast 1.900 Menschen starben an der Krankheit und über 425.000 Verdachtsfälle sind identifiziert. Seit 2002 sind wir im Jemen tätig. Unsere jetzige Arbeit konzentriert auf die Verteilung von Hygiene-Kits, Wasser Silberfiltern und die Schulung von Gemeinden und Mitarbeitern, wie man die Ausbreitung der Krankheit mit unseren Cholera Response-Projekten bekämpft. Parallel dazu versorgen wir Gesundheitseinrichtungen mit Medikamenten und Hygieneartikeln, Wassertanks und Verbrauchsmaterialien. Dies geschieht im Rahmen des Integrated Water Resources Management.  Bild: Auf dem Bild sehen wir die Kinder, die über Cholera und Hygiene lernen und auch, wie man den Ausbruch verhindert. Eine Aufgabe, die von einem männlichen und einem weiblichen Field Information Officer durchgeführt wird.  Der beste Weg, um unsere Arbeit zu unterstützen, ist durch eine Spende.

: "Where indifference ends, life begins"  In October 2016 Cholera was identified in Yemen as spreading - a small sign of what was to come. The answer against the disease was then focused on confined areas of the country.  With the new year of 2017, entering year 3 of violent war, suffering with famine and an increasing loss of access to primary needs services such as clean water, health services and education, Yemen saw 1 child dying every 10 minutes - now 1 child dies every 7 minutes!! But by then, in March, April and May, a main cause was Severe Acute Malnutrition: 462.000 children under 5 y.o. were in this situation and Yemen was pointed by the United Nations as the "worst humanitarian crisis" since its foundation.  Now Cholera returned and the Cholera Outbreak became an Epidemic. Today, since the start of the outbreak in April, reported 1.864 people died of the disease and 390,865 suspected cases are identified.  Therefore our present work in Yemen focuses in the distribution of hygiene kits, water filters (silver filters), and the education of both communities and staff on how to tackle the spread of the disease with our Cholera Response projects.  In parallel, as we work in Yemen since 2002, we are also supplying health facilities with medicines, and hygiene materials, water tanks and consumables, as part of the IWRM - Integrated Water Resources Management.  Picture: in the picture we see a family receiving being educated, at the door of their house, about Cholera, hygiene, and how to prevent it. A task undergone by a male and a female field information officer.  The best way to support our work is by donating. So, if you can, please donate!
