U.N. Briefing, including update on LRA

 As a part of the “information media,” I just got this briefing from the U.N., which I dutifully pass on. I find the briefing’s transcript quite interesting. Note that the U.N. is expanding the peacekeeping force in the Democratic Republic of Congo to protect civilians from attacks by the Lord’s Resistance Army.  ‘Tis the season, it’s [...]

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

Of short-term thinking and shortfalls

This just in from the advocacy group, Results. If you ever wonder why pilot projects that have successful results aren’t replicated, this story shows one reason why: money. It’s as unsurprising as it is nonsensical. A longer-term perspective would clearly show that money overall was being saved by investing in upfront medical services. But, even when the global economy is in the [...]

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 [...]

What UNICEF is doing for kids in Qinghai earthquake

This from a UNICEF press release:
UNICEF mobilizing for Qinghai earthquake disaster
Majority of primary schools collapsed, urgent need for tents, winter clothing
BEIJING, 15 April 2010 –UNICEF will send urgently needed relief supplies for children affected by yesterday’s massive earthquake. The response will be coordinated with other UN agencies. The quake heavily damaged parts of remote [...]

Combatting child trafficking in Haiti

Just got this press release in my email today anf thought it was worth posting in its entirety. Even as the media spotlight on Haiti fails, let’s not forget the threats facing its children, who are multilayered vulnerable - on top of the vulnerability they had before the earthquake because of their poverty, they now [...]

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 [...]

Update on Haiti from IRIN

Here’s the link to a Haiti update from IRIN, the news service of the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs. While the story on that links refers to one situation, the page has links to other reports as well.
