World Water Day 2017

Clean water is a basic human right, but the hard reality is that 319 million people in sub-saharan Africa don’t have access to safe water. Water related diseases are responsible for many illnesses and deaths in rural communities. Women and children in Africa are responsible for the collection of water and often walk for up to six hours each day to reach a water source. Their journey through various areas puts them at risk of attack and rape.

Famine stalks South Sudan

In late February this year, famine was declared in parts of South Sudan and the situation is expected to worsen sharply as the lean season, four months away, draws near. In the lean season, food stocks are depleted and prices are expected to rocket. Declaring a famine means that people have started to die from starvation, and this announcement has been made long before the period in which stocks are usually reduced.
