An innovation campaign was launched in December 2021 to further increase awareness of the Fund and what it stands for. The pilot Programmatic Partnership allows exactly that. While the crisis in Yemen is one of the most dire, brought on by protracted conflict, droughts, and floods intensified by the climate crisis, COVID-19, and other diseases, it has failed to attract adequate support from donors for years. Ahead of International Migrants Day on 18 December, the IFRC is calling for a stronger commitment to support people on the move during their journey, not only once they have managed to reach their planned destination if they ever do.

Those volunteers train yearly on communication skills, community activities, and media on the ground to perform their communication duties within the Branches, but also they have been trained by health staff on COVID prevention and on frequently asked questions. The 10 countries of implementation in the inception phase are: Burkina Faso, Chad, Cameroon, Mali, Niger, Yemen, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Panama. ACAPS analysts considered nine variables (under three pillars or dimensions) to compare humanitarian access constraints across 82 countries with active humanitarian crises. During the same period, interference in the implementation of humanitarian activities by the authorities in Yemen was frequently reported. Humanitarians are working to adapt to these diverse challenges in order to deliver. And thank you to Brazil for hosting this very important debate. The IFRC is the worlds largest humanitarian network, comprising 192 National Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies working to save lives, build community resilience, strengthen localization and promote dignity around the world.

Thank you, Mr. Kumi, for sharing your experiences and insights. The Fund received 52 applications in 2022, covering a diverse range of humanitarian projects run by National Societies in every region of the world. By United States Mission to the United Nations | 19 July, 2022 | Topics: Highlights, Remarks and Highlights, United States Mission to the United Nations. This is a European Commission website managed by the Joint Research Centre. At the end of the two-day conference, participants will aim to adopt the Baghdad Declaration, which will address a range of humanitarian issues and underline the importance of National Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies in bringing hope and support to vulnerable communities. Longer-term, strategic partnerships are essential to respond to the escalation of humanitarian crises around the world.

This is the official website of the U.S. Mission to the United Nations. Migrants and displaced populations are intensely vulnerable and must be included in COVID-19 prevention, response, and recovery plans. During the reporting period, 53 SAs were reported to be approved, including 29 by the Government of Yemen and 24 by Ansarullah authorities. More than 140 attendees, including representatives from 16 National Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, will attend the conference to explore a range of issues, including the shrinking of neutral and impartial humanitarian space, and the rising vulnerabilities of millions of migrants. OCHA coordinates the global emergency response to save lives and protect people in humanitarian crises. Reports from the National Societies whose projects were funded and implemented in 2020 generated insights in the areas listed below. Multiple Indicator Cluster Surveys (MICs), become a living hell for the countrys children, damage and closure of schools and hospitals, around 17.4 million people were in need of food assistance, signed an Action Plan with the United Nations. Remarks by UNICEF Executive Director Catherine Russell at the high-level pledging event on the humanitarian crisis in Yemen, Sanaa authorities in Yemen sign action plan with UN to prevent grave violations against children, UNICEF is supporting therapeutic feeding centres with supplies and training. We must respond rapidly, we must respond at scale, and we must modernize our approach to make impact. The conflict in Yemen caused enormous suffering for children, including denial of humanitarian access and children killed, maimed, subject to sexual violence, recruited, and used in the conflict. 17.8 million people lack access to safe water and adequate sanitation services
At the international level, this Council must ensure that all UN peace operations and political missions have adequate child protection capacity, with a prioritization of child protection during transition. We advocate for effective and principled humanitarian action by all, for all. The awareness messages are broadcasted on loudspeakers and disseminated by posters. The grant will allow the National Society to assist victims of attacks by armed groups in areas where security is a challenge. We welcome the truce in Yemen, which provides respite to all Yemenis, including children, and continue to support the United Nations engagement with parties to the conflict to protect children and prevent violations against them. Many doctors and nurses have fled from the conflict in Yemen.
Funding is the sum of commitments and paid contributions. Yemen remains one of the largest humanitarian crises in the world, with around 23.7 million people in need of assistance, including almost 13 million children. Many health workers have not received a regular salary in several years. It is administered by the Joint Commission of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies and the International Committee of the Red Cross, which maintains close contact with the Japanese Permanent Mission in Geneva, the Japanese Red Cross Society and the Meiji Jingu Research Institute in Japan. When we take steps to protect children, we are protecting and safeguarding our collective future and actively taking steps to end enduring conflicts. Luai has been sick for a while with a fever that shows no sign of abating.
They were not present before the conflict, says doctor Anisha. Ambassador Jeffrey DeLaurentis
We mobilise people and resources to create, curate, make sense of and use knowledge to inform policymaking across Europe. The Commitment to Development Index ranks 27 of the worlds richest countries on policies that affect the more than five billion people living in poorer nations.
In Yemen, a country affected by war for over five years, the YRCS has been one of the few humanitarian organizations to freely continue executing its activities and missions all over the country doing what they most excel at: humanitarian support for communities affected by conflict and natural disasters, medical services especially for women and children, nutrition aids, prevention campaigns to tackle the risks of diseases as cholera and malaria, and lately, societal awareness through field campaigns around the countrys 22 governorates to stave off the dangers of COVID-19. Its very important for us to hear them. The Pilot Programmatic Partnership (PPP) is an innovative and ambitious three-year partnership between the IFRC, many of our member National Societies, and the European Union.
Adaptability and agility

New York, New York In 2021, violent attacks on school children in Afghanistan particularly girls hindered access to education. The Portuguese Red Cross will address young people's social exclusion and the lack of space and opportunities to develop relevant skills and digital literacy, through the Platforms of Change, funded by the grant. The partnership strengthens mutual strategic priorities and is built around five pillars of intervention: disaster preparedness/risk management; epidemic and pandemic preparedness and response; humanitarian assistance and protection to people on the move; cash and voucher assistance; risk communication, community engagement and accountability. As a further consequence, an estimated 35 million people have been displaced from their homes across the Middle East and North Africa, according to the International Organization for Migration. The imperial family, the Japanese government, the Japanese Red Cross and the Japanese people revere the memory of Her Majesty Empress Shken, and their enduring regard for the Fund is shown by the regularity of their contributions to it. We raised the level of awareness among people and helped them. Five years ago, we did not see many cases of malnutrition, she says. We are encouraged by the humanitarian truce in northern Ethiopia and hope all parties build on this momentum to advance talks that achieve a durable ceasefire.
In a mountainous district of Yemen, frequent rockslides often injure people and domestic animals, disrupt transport networks and cut people off from their livelihood activities. In Geneva: Rana Sidani Cassou, +41 766715751 / +33 675945515, [emailprotected]
That is all she can do. Mr. President, it is clear we have not done enough to protect children from the impacts of conflict. Together, we will support communities worldwide to reduce their risks and be better prepared for disasters and health emergencies.
July 19, 2022. The Croatian Red Cross will use the grant funds to spread awareness of the humanitarian ideals and educate children from an early age, through the Humanity Corner. The sale of arms and dual-use technology to the military must end now. The Sri Lanka Red Cross Society is aiming for better nutrition and improved water, sanitation and hygiene in vulnerable communities that are drought-prone. As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, communities face challenges in gaining access to reliable, up-to-date information and in overcoming the rumours, myths and misconceptions around the vaccine.
At the national level, violations against children must be criminalized in national laws. Data shows an increase by 55 per cent, 159 more incidents compared to the last quarter of 2021. In an innovative way revealing a deep understanding of the local environment, the YRCS worked with the International Committee of the Red Cross to produce audio flashes containing simplified awareness messages people can incorporate into their daily lives to smoothly change their behaviours.
The situation in Myanmar is causing increasing concern. Key facts
This year the Joint Commission agreed to allocate a total of 471,712 Swiss francs to 16 projects in Burkina Faso, Cte d'Ivoire, Croatia, Dominica, the Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Jordan, Libya, Mongolia, Niger, Portugal, Serbia, South Korea, Sri Lanka, Tanzania and Yemen. Countless migrants face inhumane conditions along their way, including violence, lack of food, shelter and access to health services. In the event of an accident, smartphones can provide information that is essential for providing effective first aid. This quarter shows an increase of 79 per cent compared with the last quarter - 34 incidents were reported in this quarter and 19 in Q4 2021. The Mongolian Red Cross Society wants to use digital communication tools funded by the grant in order to help ensure there is meaningful community participation across all programmes and operations, improve its public relations management and strengthen its transparency and accountability to communities.
Nisrine Ahmed, the YRCs Media Officer, said, Before setting out to implement an activity, a coordination with all authorities in the country has to be done to commence a field awareness campaign directly with the people as to bridge the gap in all rugged locations. Thank you, Special Representative Gamba and Executive Director Russell, for your briefings.
I welcome with great hope the Pilot Programmatic Partnership with IFRC, a trusted EU partner who shares our vision of implementing efficient and effective humanitarian aid operations worldwide. We need to mobilize all efforts and resources to ensure people on the move receive humanitarian assistance and protection. The Fund has a total value of over 17 million Swiss francs and supports projects run by National Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies to benefit their communities in various ways. While they need the bare necessities for a normal life, its hard to ask people to stay home and stick to the recommended safety measures to prevent COVID-19, said Jaeem adding, people dont have money to buy a mask or gloves to use when they go outside. In response to the increasing number of crises arising worldwide, the pilot Programmatic Partnership Accelerating Local Action in Humanitarian and Health Crises aims to support local action in addressing humanitarian and health crises across at least 25 countries with a multi-year EU funding allocation. Children are also being helped with victim assistance and education on mines and explosive remnants of war. I cannot leave my patients here. The projects to be supported in 2022 cover a number of themes, including first aid and rescue, support for young people, disaster preparedness, health, social welfare and National Society development. Investment is also made to ensure communities are better prepared to cope with disasters through the implementation of disaster preparedness and risk reduction components.
And we need medicine to treat patients with hypertension and diabetes. The vaccinations need to be stored in a cold place, but because of the lack of electricity and fuel, this is no longer an option. The future is horrible. Over the first quarter, humanitarian partners reported 701 access incidents in 100 districts within 21 governorates across Yemen, affecting 5.6 million people. Brussels/Geneva, 30 March 2022 - An ambitious partnership between the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) and the Directorate-General for European Civil Protection and Humanitarian Aid Operations (DG ECHO) launched today aims to be a new model for the humanitarian sector. The grants are announced every year on 11 April, the anniversary of the death of Her Majesty Empress Shken. It is the same story with the X-ray machine which has not been working since the beginning of the conflict.
Doctor Anisha also sees many malnourished pregnant women which can lead to complications like low birth weight and premature births.
In Libya, 9 per cent of the countrys estimated one million migrants are minors, and 40 per cent of these are unaccompanied. Mr Francesco Rocca, the President of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC), said: Across the region and around the world, these people who have fled their homes because of war or violence struggle to access the services and support they need to survive. Doctor Anisha is the only doctor to help the approximately 40 patients who come to the clinic every day. Funding figures as reported to FTS. He saluted the extraordinary efforts of the thousands of dedicated staff and volunteers of the Yemen Red Crescent:
This quarter showed a decrease in restrictions, mainly in visa delays and denials, by about 66 per cent compared with the previous quarter (Q4 2021). Only 45 per cent of Yemens health facilities are currently functioning. Humanitarian action is central to UNICEFs mandate and realizing the rights of every child. Doctor Anisha examines the little boy and it does not take her long to conclude that he is malnourished and has anemia. Meanwhile, UNICEF and partners are rehabilitating damaged schools and establishing safe learning spaces. As usual, we see the YRCS present and giving the most important info that helped us to correct some of the misconceptions about COVID-19.

His brown eyes look tired almost absent and the skin is way too pale. The cases in this report were chosen based on three main criteria: i) the most affected crises under each access pillar, ii) crises or contexts for which ACAPS has reliable or more regular data on a specific access constraint, and iii) diversified examples showing how different (or similar) access constraints can be found across diverse contexts. The HIU employs geographic methods and technologies, serves as an information-sharing node, and manages projects that facilitate the creation of geospatial data. But not Doctor Anisha. The severity of these incidents (e.g., carjacking, kidnappings, intimidation, etc.) Taking a pilot approach
Access challenges have been diverse. The HIU identifies, creates, and disseminates multidisciplinary information and analysis to U.S. Government decision makers and humanitarian partners. There is also a risk that Luai is suffering from internal parasites, a condition common in many Yemeni children. Russias forces reportedly have forcibly deported more than a million Ukrainian civilians to Russia via processing through so-called filtration, including over 260,000 children.
The grant will be used to develop a virtual introductory course on planning and coordinating social support activities that is adapted to the young peoples local reality, so that they are equipped with the techniques and tools to address the needs of their community. Through the Their life is in your hands digital marketing campaign, funded by the grant, the Red Cross of Serbia will raise the general publics awareness of the value of CPR skills and AED use and provide the related training. These men and women are working tirelessly on the front lines to support the people in need and to preserve their dignity despite the complex situation. In 2017, over 43.8% of Ivorians were illiterate, and the disparities between men and women and by places of residence were enormous. Nevertheless, their impact was severe. European Commissioner for Crisis Management, JanezLenari said:
More than 10,200 children have been killed or maimed since the beginning of the conflict, and thousands more have been recruited into the fighting, An estimated 2 million children are internally displaced. Since the conflict escalatedin March 2015, the country hasbecome a living hell for the countrys children. OCHA coordinates the global emergency response to save lives and protect people in humanitarian crises. Our situation is dire, and we need protective equipment that we cannot buy. On a single day in Kayah State last December, the Myanmar military massacred at least 35 people including children and two staff members of Save the Children and then burned their bodies. We were met with obstacles to persuade the population and change their ideas about the virus. Improving communications
In Iraq itself, 15 years of conflict and economic stagnation have left more than 8.5 million people relying on humanitarian relief. Thanks to the grant, the Red Cross Society of Niger will educate and inform the public about how to store useful information in the emergency call section of their phones. But our moral responsibility demands more urgent action to save lives now. 23.4 million people are estimated to need humanitarian assistance in 2022,12.9 million of whom were estimated to be in acute need. Working closely with its National Societies, the IFRCs global reach combined with local action, its long history of community-driven humanitarian work and its Fundamental Principles, make it the partner of choice for this Pilot Programmatic Partnership with the EU. Thank you, Mr. President.
Ultimately, the coordination to carry out the activity becomes centralized with the local authority at the governorate level. We can check their blood pressure and blood sugar, but we cannot give them medicine.

Red Cross and Red Crescent teams provide multidisciplinary assistance, including health services, livelihood support, protection for children and victims of violence, mental health, and psychosocial support, as well as cash assistance. Digitalization
The geographical nature, ranging from mountains to deserts, coasts, and frontiers, has been aggravated by the poor phone and internet coverage and the unreliable electricity and made these places unattainable. The report presents countries and crises as cases whenever applicable to a given access constraint, explaining the nature of the constraint in specific contexts.
Despite some recent progress, humanitarian partners continue to work with the Government of Yemen and the Ansarullah authorities to establish accountable and principled procedures for timely approvals of project sub-agreements. We carry these awareness campaigns in coordination with the Danish Red Cross (DRC), the German Red Cross (GRC), the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent (IFRD), and the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC). Response, US State Department Bureau of International Organization Affairs. The grant will fund development of virtual reality training content by the Asia Pacific Disaster Resilience Centre, provide sets of virtual reality devices to seven National Societies and provide virtual reality training on disaster risk reduction.
