Weekly Worldwide Wrap-Up

Welcome to the Weekly Worldwide Wrap-Up, in which we consolidate the international Red Cross and Red Crescent news into one list of bite-sized links for you. It’s a non-comprehensive sampling of the larger and/or more intriguing aspects of our global work…

[The place names link to maps so that you can get a quick idea of the region.]

CHILE: In one of various relief activities, mobile Red Cross teams have been taking satellite phones into some of the worst quake-damaged areas to help people restore contact with their family members.

HAITI: Last week marked the 100,000th Red Cross-assisted vaccination in Haiti. This week the American Red Cross passed the $100 million mark in aid for Haiti relief and recovery. And a third milestone: the Red Cross and partner humanitarian agencies have passed the halfway mark in the race to provide emergency shelter for those affected by the earthquake.
UGANDA: A catastrophic landslide completely wiped out three villages. The Uganda Red Cross has been assisting with search and rescue, and providing tarp, blankets, cooking sets, water purification tablets and other aid to more than 1,500 affected families.
NIGERIA: Violent attacks last Sunday in five villages just south of Jos forced thousands of people to flee their homes. The ICRC and Nigerian Red Cross Society have been providing first aid for injured persons, food and water for displaced people and detainees, and collecting the names of the missing with the aim of finding them and reuniting them with their families.

DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC OF THE CONGO: The ICRC is reuniting 15 children with their families after years of separation.
