Violence has erupted in South Sudan and several of our international partners are responding to provide emergency supplies and support. All donations to the projects listed below will support recovery and relief efforts for people impacted by the conflict in South Sudan. GlobalGiving and its partner organizations will post reports about how funds have been used and will email these reports to donors and subscribers.
The lack of access to legal counsel for poor men, women, and children accused of crimes is a serious problem in post-conflict countries. These people routinely languish in detention for months or years without trial, and face torture, coerced confessions, and wrongful convictions. This project will allow the ILF to expand into new countries with no functioning legal aid systems, and work to establish legal aid programs that provide effective, quality criminal defense services to the poor.
With more than 11,000 staff worldwide; 350 warehouses globally; strategic transit hubs in Copenhagen, Dubai, Panama and Shanghai; and a 24/7 emergency operations center in New York, UNICEF stands ready to provide both immediate and long-term necessities-food, water, shelter, protection and physical as well as mental health care-whenever a crisis arises. UNICEF also works to reunite children with family and provides care for those who are orphaned.
There are 43.7 million refugees in the world today. Refugees have well-founded fears of persecution for reasons of race, religion, nationality, and other factors. CARE places the needs and rights of women and refugee girls at the forefront, reflecting CARE's experience that empowering women and girls is a critical pathway to reduce vulnerability and long-term poverty. CARE provides short and long term assistance to refugees- from shelter, food, water as well as education, health and security.
In order to help the millions of people who have been displaced due to armed conflict, persecution, or other dangers, the member organizations of Aktion Deutschland Hilft are implementing numerous projects for refugees worldwide. These projects cover areas such as the provision of emergency shelters, psycho-social support for traumatized children, distribution of food and hygiene articles, assistance for unaccompanied refugee minors, and medical care.
This project will sustain and enhance HOCW's adult education program. Refugees arrive in Uganda having lived in conflict areas most of their lives and have not had the opportunity to access basic education services nor are they prepared for work in their new home country. HOCW provides English classes, basic literacy, & job training for 120 refugees. This project will expand the existing program by building an additional classroom and a computer lab as well as allowing us to hire 3 instructors.
