Current Crisis: Need for Refugee Charity
In the past five years, at least 15 conflicts have erupted or reignited: eight in Africa (Côte d’Ivoire, Central African Republic, Libya, Mali, northeastern Nigeria, Democratic Republic of Congo, South Sudan and this year in Burundi); three in the Middle East (Syria, Iraq, and Yemen); one in Europe (Ukraine) and three in Asia (Kyrgyzstan, and in several areas of Myanmar and Pakistan). ITH Charities works with a team of qualified emergency response teams toward helping alleviate these crisis. Current efforts are focused on response efforts among the Somali and Syrian refugee communities. Please support these efforts by donating to our refugee charity. Of key concern is that since the spring of 2011, ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Syria) has seized control of large portions of the two Eastern nations with “unstoppable force, extreme brutality, and merciless tactics against religious and ethnic minorities.” The fallout has been devastating, both on a humanitarian and spiritual level: Today, millions of refugees lack access to the most basic necessities needed for daily survival. The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), presents this chilling report in an article titled: Worldwide Displacement Hits All-time High as War and Persecution Increase.
GENEVA, June 18 (UNHCR) – Wars, conflict and persecution have forced more people than at any other time since records began to flee their homes and seek refuge and safety elsewhere, according to a new report from the UN refugee agency. UNHCR’s annual Global Trends Report: World at War, released on Thursday (June 18), said that worldwide displacement was at the highest level ever recorded. It said the number of people forcibly displaced at the end of 2014 had risen to a staggering 59.5 million compared to 51.2 million a year earlier and 37.5 million a decade ago. The increase represents the biggest leap ever seen in a single year. Half of all refugees are children ~ …The Global Trends report detailed that in 2014 alone 13.9 million people became newly displaced – four times the number of the previous year. Worldwide there were 19.5 million refugees (up from 16.7 million in 2013), 38.2 million were displaced inside their own countries (up from 33.3 million in 2013), and 1.8 million people were awaiting the outcome of claims for asylum (against 1.2 million in 2013). Most alarmingly, however, it showed that over half the world’s refugees are children. “With huge shortages of funding and wide gaps in the global regime for protecting victims of war, people in need of compassion, aid and refuge are being abandoned,” warned Guterres. “For an age of unprecedented mass displacement, we need an unprecedented humanitarian response and a renewed global commitment to tolerance and protection for people fleeing conflict and persecution.” Syria is the world’s biggest producer of both internally displaced people (7.6 million) and refugees (3.88 million at the end of 2014). Afghanistan (2.59 million) and Somalia (1.1 million) are the next biggest refugee source countries. Almost nine out of every 10 refugees (86 per cent) are in regions and countries considered economically less developed. Read More at UNHCR.
