The COVID-19 pandemic
Les réfugiés et personnes déplacées sont souvent soumis à des situations précaires, auxquelles s'ajoutent aujourd'hui le danger de la pandémie du COVID-19.
The Rohingya Crisis
The Rohingya crisis is one of the largest and most urgent crises of our time. The women, men and children who belong to this minority group have long been denied their rights and are regularly persecuted.
Crisis in the Mediterranean
For refugees and migrants, travelling between Africa and Europe remains one of the deadliest journeys in the world. Thousands of people die and the people who survive experience severe trauma.
The Venezuela crisis
The political, social and economic crisis Venezuela is currently going through has brought about violence, insecurity and the deterioration of basic human rights. Shortages in food, medicine and essential services are making matters worse.
The Syrian crisis
After 10 years of war, Syrians are still struggling to survive. More than half of the country’s population has fled since the beginning of the war, making this the largest refugee crisis since 1945. Nearly 13 million people need humanitarian assistance.
Humanitarian crisis in Yemen
The ongoing civil war in Yemen, which started in 2015, has caused the world's worst humanitarian crisis to date: four out of five Yemeni can’t survive without outside aid, and twenty million people are on the brink of starvation.
Emergency in the Sahel
The situation in the Sahel is the fastest growing displacement and protection crisis in the world. Conflict areas continue to expand, overwhelmingly affecting women and children.
Crisis in the Central African Republic
The Central African Republic is one of the poorest countries in the world. The coup led by the Seleka rebels in March 2013 to oust the President wreaked havoc, thrusting an already vulnerable population into a state of crisis.
