Cyclone Farni hits India and Bangladesh

GHNI teams and villagers have been hit by Cyclone Farni and we expect several more to be impacted as the storm moves through India and Bangladesh.  We have not yet connected with our staff experiencing the storm, but we know they will be met with many people seeking help after the storm passes.

As we know more, we will share.  Will you please offer a hand up to villagers seeking to end their own extreme poverty who have been hit by this monster storm?  Let's help them keep progressing forward.

Cameroon Conflict displaces families

We woke up at about 5,30 am early Monday December 3, 2018 with a fierce battle between the Separatist (local militia) and regular government security forces that lasted about 6 hours leading to deaths on both camps. These six hours were characterized by heavy gun shelling with the use of machine guns.

Cyclone hits Mozambique

The situation is very, very bad. People are still trapped on treetops and rooftops since Friday last week, (March 15th), hungry and thirsty waiting to be rescued. Those who have been rescued are in desperate need of food and shelter..a place to sleep. They are so many that the institutions do not have the capacity to host and care for them all.

Yazidi Internally Displaced People (IDP), Disaster Relief

 

Some of the Yazidi IDPs are going home to their town of Shingal (Sinjar) to see the condition of their homes and town. Mostly, only the men go back because they are not willing to take their daughters and wives. The horrible things they experienced at the hands of invaders have discouraged them from going to their town until they know the invaders are gone.
