Blog: Lives lost in Syria

Written by Camilla Jelbart Mosse, Oxfam's Humanitarian Campaign Manager

As G8 leaders meet on Syria, the stakes couldn’t be higher for those caught in the crossfire.

“My family lost our home and many loved ones. We’d go for days without being able to raise our heads to buy water and bread as it wasn’t safe, so we had to leave Syria. We just want to go home.”

There are promises and promises, but we get nothing, Fatima, a refugee from Syria, told one of my colleagues in Lebanon last week. Her counterparts in Jordan where I was visiting tell a very similar story. They call for more aid for those who have fled Syria of course – but also for something to be done for the millions left behind in their country’s vicious conflict.

Blog: All stations to aid: Global Humanitarian Assistance’s new interactive guide

I’m quite a fan of the Global Humanitarian Assistance reports produced every year by the Development Initiatives think tank. They combine invaluable data on funding with thoughtful commentary on what is and is not changing in the humanitarian world. So I was pretty excited to see last week that they’ve launched a new ‘interactive guide to humanitarian financing’.

When an emergency situation occurs, whether it’s a fast-onset emergency like the earthquake in Haiti, or a slow-onset like this year's food crisis in the Sahel region of Africa (that is, one that had been building for many months), the immediate concern of aid agencies is the survival of the most vulnerable.

Blog: Fatou’s story: Searching for safety in the DRC

A surge in violence in eastern DR Congo has forced tens of thousands of people to flee. Many, like Fatou, have arrived in the Kibati camp on the edge of Goma.
