Follow-up on Pakistan floods

In my continuing effort to return the spotlight periodically to forgotten crises, this just in from Handicap International:
 February 1, 2011

WASHINGTON – For the last six months, Handicap International’s 500-strong team has supported people stricken by the flooding that has devastated Pakistan, affecting 20 million people and damaging 1.7 million homes. The [...]

Aid tourism

The writer of this opinion piece brings up issues touched on in my story on Haitian evacuees. He wrote this for the UK’s Guardian. Here’s the start of it and a link to the full story.
Save Haiti from aid tourists
The ‘republic of NGOs’ is in a vicious circle of dependence and institutional infantilism

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 [...]

Checking on Myanmar, post-Nargis

AlertNet has posted a blog article today written by a Myanmar Red Cross worker and the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent on how some Myanmarese are doing two years this month after Cyclone Nargis struck the already-troubled Southeast Asian nation. It by no means gives a complete picture of the situation there, [...]

On donations to Haiti

Check out this post from the GiveWell blog on whether contributers’ money to Haitian relief services are being well-used, and whether it may not be better at this point to give to othr efforts.

Children in Haiti

I’ve been wanting to give a roundup (since even before the NY Times did its story on kids, she says with pride and procrastination) of how Haitian children are doing post-earthquake. So here’s a roundup of info and the activities of some non-governmental and international groups whose work I respect.
First, though, I need to comment [...]

Lets not forget what else is going on

Iraq, Sudan, Somalia, Myanmar — there still are crises in these countries and others around the world requiring a slice of attention. Even as the urgency of Haiti clearly rises to the top of the agenda, as I’ve said before, the world must be able to multitask on humanitarian situations. Look to Thomson Reuters Foundation [...]

Clinton goes to Africa

And thank goodness she did, human gaffes and all.
Secretary of State Clinton will always be a lightning rod for people who are at odds with her or her husband, former President Bill Clinton. I remember back when Bill Clinton was making his first run for president, and there were wild stories out there that said [...]

A debate on bed nets

Stef Schiffer commented on my previous post about what Concern Worldwide was doing for World Malaria Day, arguing that bed nets was just a Western feel-good initiative. The comment included this site, with a well-done video.  Thanks to Stef for telling me about it. The people on the video, many of them first- and second-generation Africans, make a good [...]

Tomorrow is World Malaria Day

Thought I’d reprint a press release that i just got from the United States chapter of Irish NGO, Concern Worldwide, to illustrate how one organization is trying to combat the disease in sub-Saharan Africa.
The secret weapon in fight against global killer
April 25 is World Malaria Day
Malaria kills up to 1 million people each year—mostly children [...]
