Life Among the Ruins; Gaza, Palestine, May 2015

Life Among the Ruins; Gaza, Palestine, May 2015

Taken on 2015-05-21

"One year ago, Gaza was targeted in a major 50-day Israeli military operation. More than 2 000 Palestinians were killed, and a third of the population was internally displaced, with thousands of homes and buildings destroyed or damaged. Key infrastructure, including Gaza’s only power plant, its electricity network and water and sanitation facilities, were badly damaged. The impact on the Palestinian territory – already affected by an eight-year Israeli blockade – preventing the freedom of movement of people and goods, has been devastating. Today, nearly 80% of the population relies on international aid, with poverty rates increasing and unemployment recorded at 43% at the end of 2014. The European Commission is supporting the affected population through projects to provide essential water, health and sanitation, shelter assistance, food security, protection and livelihoods assistance. Our colleague Caroline Gluck has been to Gaza to see how people are attempting to rebuild their lives. " European Commission DG ECHO

Rohingya Refugee Rural Slum; Kutupalong, Bangladesh, Mar 2015

Taken on 2015-03-31

The Rohingya people are a Muslim minority group historically based in Rakhine state, Myanmar. The Rohingya people are considered “stateless entities”, as the Myanmar government has been refusing to recognise them as one of the ethnic groups of the country. To escape persecution and hostility, the Rohingya people have being fleeing Myanmar and Bangladesh in high numbers. From January to March in 2015, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees estimates that 25,000 people have been taken to boats by human traffickers. There are claims that around 100 people died in Indonesia, 200 in Malaysia, and 10 in Thailand (see 2015 Wiki 'Rohingya Refugee Crisis' page for more information) Featured in this photo report are scenes of Rohingya refugees settled in rural slums around the UNCHR-government run camp of Kutupalong. Unlike the refugees settled in the UNCHR camp, who are entitled to shelter, food rations, access to school and health services, the unregistered refugees in the slum are considered illegal migrants and therefore don’t have access to any government or UN services.

In the capital city of Antananarivo, the deluge damaged the main water pump that controlled water levels in the region. The rainfall caused mudslides and damaged roads.
