Did you know that at least one in three women will experience some form of violence during their lifetime? It is one of the most widespread violations of human rights and has long-term devastating effects. We can change this: join us and say ‘Enough’!
We help people caught up in natural disasters and conflicts across the world with clean water, food, sanitation and protection. At any given time, we are responding to over 30 emergency situations, giving life-saving support to those most in need.
Millions of people are being forced from their homes, risking everything to escape conflict, disaster, poverty or hunger. From those fleeing the war in Syria or climate change-induced droughts, to those stranded in inadequate conditions in Europe, you can help us give life-saving support to refugees in the countries where they need it most.
The crisis in Syria continues to cause tremendous human suffering to people both inside and outside the country. The conflict is driving the largest refugee crisis in the world. Nearly 12 million people – 2 in 3 Syrians – are still dependent on humanitarian aid. They need your help.
Hace poco os informábamos sobre laCaravana Transafricana de la Esperanza al iniciar su andadura en un viaje de 6.500 kilómetros que separan Burundi de Sudáfrica, donde tendrá lugar la Conferencia COP17 visitando diez países a su paso. Mientras la caravana se desplaza hacia el sur, en dirección a Durban, nos reunimos con dos de sus miembros.
Nous voilà donc déjà au terme de la première semaine de la #COP17, le sommet sur le changement climatique, à Durban, en Afrique du Sud. Une première semaine marquée par une énergie et un dynamisme formidables, en dehors des salles de réunion, pour rappeler à nos leaders qu’ils sont là pour prendre les actions nécessaires afin de préserver l’avenir de la planète.
So the first week of #COP17, Durban Climate Change Summit is done. There has been energy and vibrancy outside the meeting rooms to focus our leaders on taking the action necessary to safeguard the future of our planet.
Récemment, nous vous avons donné des nouvelles de la Caravane transafricaine de l'espoir qui a entamé un voyage de 6500 kilomètres pour la COP 17 du Burundi jusqu’en Afrique du Sud, traversant dix pays sur son parcours. Tandis que la caravane met le cap sur le Sud, vers Durban, nous avons rencontré deux membres de la caravane.

Recently we bought you news about the Trans-African Caravan of Hope as it began the 4,000 mile journey from Burundi to South Africa for COP 17, taking in ten countries along the way. As the caravan heads south, towards Durban, we caught up with two of the caravanites.

There is an old African riddle I am very fond of: “How do you eat an elephant?” To which the answer is “A bite at a time.” It should be on every ones lips at the climate change talks in Durban. It can seem that climate change is so big, so complex, so all encompassing that, like our culinary elephant, it is too big to handle and there is nothing we can do to make a difference. Not true. It just needs to be taken a bite at a time.

It’s now two years since the frantic campaigning and manic diplomacy that led to the Copenhagen climate change conference, and the blame games that followed its inadequate result. As the next UN climate talks get under way this week in Durban, South Africa, we need a new script to explain what has been achieved since 2009 and what must come next in the fight to tackle climate change.
