Mataram (yellow veil) and a boy pump water from a water hole installed by UNICEF in a displaced people camp in Garin Wazam, Niger on August 10, 2016. Garin Wazam is located 55km east of Diffa town and currently host an estimated 22,800 individuals, refugees, internally displaced and host community according to the authorities of Niger. Most of them are Peul, Boudouma and Haoussa and come from Bosso, Yebi and Toumour, having arrived end of May, beginning of June 2016 after Boko Haram attacks. Since July 22th, Garin Wazam now has 6 new boreholes constructed by ACTED with UNICEF support. Before that, the water supply was made possible thanks to water trucking only. 

Boko Haram attacks have caused a population displacement and security crisis in the Diffa region. Today, Diffa hosts an estimated 300,000 displaced people (including Nigerian refugees, Nigerien returnees from Nigeria and IDPs), many settled along the RN1, the main road crossing the region. This number includes an estimated 69,000 newly displaced people as a result of the May and June 2016 attacks perpetrated by Boko Haram in Bosso, Yebi and Kablewa. The newly displaced settled on existing sites, putting an enormous pressure on the temporary health facilities in place on the various RN1 sites.UNICEF works to increase access to safe water through the construction/rehabilitation/improvement of water points, installation of emergency water supply devices and water trucking. The agency also promote adequate hygiene practices, distribute water purification products and soap and collaborate with partners to increase access to sanitation facilities in the sites for displaced people and strengthen maintenance and management of water points with implementation and training of committees.

On 24 August 2016 in the Syrian Arab Republic, two children walk arm in arm down a war damaged street in Aleppo.

By end August 2016, children continue to bear the brunt of the latest surge in violence in Aleppo.  In the eastern part of Aleppo, around 100,000 children remain trapped since early July.  Water has ceased flowing through the public network, as the generator that operates the main water pumping station needs urgent repairs.  UNICEF does not have safe access to provide the urgent humanitarian assistance needed in the area.

In the western part of Aleppo, an estimated 35,000 people were displaced when new waves of fighting hit the al-Hamadaniyah neighbourhood.  Already displaced by the war and living in half-built apartment towers, again families had to flee and leave everything behind.  Most families are currently staying in informal shelters such as schools and mosques as well as in parks and on the streets.  UNICEF trucks in water daily for 300,000 of the most vulnerable people including newly displaced families in informal shelters. The main electricity network that powers pumping stations sustained damage in recent fighting. UNICEF supports the delivery of fuel to operate generators for water pumping stations and groundwater wells that provide safe drinking water to around 1.2 million people.

阿勒頗兒童被困於「現實的噩夢」──聯合國兒童基金會副執行主任福賽斯

© UNICEF/UN029871/Al-Issa 紐約/香港,2016年9月28日 - 聯合國兒童基金會(UNICEF)指出,自上星期五以來,阿勒頗東部有至少96名兒童被殺,223名兒童受傷。 UNICEF副執行主任福賽斯(Justin Forsyth)表示:「阿勒頗兒童被困於現實的噩夢,他們經歷的痛苦無法言喻。」 阿勒頗東部目前只有30名醫生工作,醫療系統面臨崩潰,幾乎沒有設備及緊急藥物可用來救治傷者,而創傷個案卻與日俱增。 一名前綫醫生告訴我們,由於資源有限,生存機會渺茫的兒童通常只能被丟下不管。 福賽斯表示:「無法接受任何攻擊兒童和完全無視人類生命的行為。兒童身心承受的打擊是我們看過最嚴重的。」
