Rape in Congo

The American Journal of Public Health is publishing a study today (it wasn’t posted as of this writing, but here’s the web site for it) that shows the appalling prevalence of rape in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
Here’s a link to the GlobalPost story on it. The study finds that nearly 2 million women have been [...]

What boys do in Somalia to earn money

This story from IRIN really got to me. I suppose shining shoes is better than being a child soldier. Either way, it seems, there’s a great chance they’ll be killed. A point worth making: In places and situations like these, the term street children  generally refers to boys. Let’s hope NGOs and appropriate agencies are [...]

Crises off our radar screen

I don’t think I can overemphasize the need for those who work in or care about humanitarian crises to be able to multitask responding to emergencies. Decent people cannot say to those caught in a civil war, “Oh, you have to wait until we are done dealing with these massacre victims” or “Your natural disaster [...]

Aid workers as targets

It’s a phenomenon that’s disturbing to see: Armed groups targeting aid workers. It’s not a new phenomena, though its increasing frequency suggests that such attacks are becoming an accepted tactic by some, much as suicide bombing has been embraced by some armed groups as a legitimate tactic.
It’s not.
Suicide bombing and targeting aid workers purposely shred [...]

Condolences for death of a northern Uganda activist

Nate Henn, 25, was one of the victims in yesterday’s bombing in Kigali, Rwanda of a rugby field where the World Cup final was being televised on a giant screen. Nate listed himself as a 2007 graduate of the University of Delaware. When I was on the Inquirer’s editorial board writing about Northern Uganda from about [...]

A must-see video

The Enough Project has produced this great spoof of the Mac-PC commercials to educate the public about how computers, yes, the ones in our homes and offices, are made with conflict minerals from the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Militias do the mining and then use the considerable profits to finance the continued fighting in DRC that has [...]

Again, I ask, how does the LRA survive?

Here’s part of a great story from IRIN that raises the same question: How can such a small group of rebels endure and cause such havoc in so many countries, including in the Democratic Republic of Congo as examined by IRIN. The story doesn’t give many satisfying answers, except to say that the LRA uses such brutal [...]

The LRA manages to survive, cause havoc

I got the following press release this morning from the International Crisis Group, which points out the continued, bloody existence of the Lord’s Resistance Army. As much as I respect the crisis group, the conclusions in its new report aren’t new at all. The LRA has been a regional menace for years. Think tanks and humanitarian groups [...]

Aid for Haiti

Paul Farmer’s Partners in Health not only is a reliable, strong provider of medical care in Haiti, it has been there for years before the earthquake and will be there long after the world’s attention has faded from the current destruction. If you want to donate money for Haiti, consider PIH.
I’ll also put a plug [...]

Thank goodness for IRIN…

…because it reports hugely important stories like this that get late, little or no attention from the mainstream media. This story on Somalia underscores how children ALWAYS suffer tremendously from fighting.

MOGADISHU, 14 July 2009 (IRIN) - At only 14, Ali Hussein Sid is already the sole breadwinner of his family, his father having been killed [...]
