Remote and vast area of southern Mauritania, Guidimakha has been for a long time confronted with chronic poverty and high food insecurity levels. Lack of rain, shortfalls in agricultural production and difficult access to essential food items, have led to an extreme vulnerability of populations. In addition, the region is deeply afflicted by chronic malnutrition, with rates exceeding the thresholds set by the World Health Organisation. In response to this situation, the European Commission Humanitarian Department (ECHO) and the UK’s Department for International Development (DFID) are jointly supporting organizations such as Action Against Hunger (AAH), in the implementation of a project devoted to prevent, treat and reduce acute malnutrition. Nutritional and medical follow-up, information on good health and nutrition practices, are accessible for more than 45 000 children aged 6 to 59 months, nearly 65 000 women of childbearing age and 4,670 pregnant and lactating women. Awareness-raising activities are carried out, through community agents, but also through theatre groups. Moreover, all Guidimakha health structures are benefitting from the deployment of personnel to support on-site medical staff, as well as trainings to continuously improve the children’s follow-up, all with the aim of making the fight against malnutrition more effective.

However, he and his family are only a handful amongst the many thousands more who have died already, or who are likely to perish, in attempting to flee the conflict in Syria.

Bhaktapur is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The ancient capital of Nepal, it is home to numerous architectural and artistic marvels in the form of temples and palaces. After the 2015 Nepal Earthquake, many of these ancient buildings collapsed along with homes in the neighbourhood, However, many of them are still intact although they may have varying levels of structural damage. Relief tents have been erected in the squares and other open spaces for those who have lost their homes. These photos show a square which has two standing temples amidst a lot of rubble. One cannot enter these temples yet for fear of structural damage/ a violent aftershock. One can see two Chinese Red Cross relief tents in the square between the temples.

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
