#Snapshots June

Here a few updates about how your support helped people around the world in June.

Providing Water and Hygiene Services in Indonesia

We’re working with our in-country partner KUN Humanity Systems to bring water and sanitation to schools in Indonesia, in response to the Sunda Strait tsunami, which hit the country in December 2018.

We’re also working with Indonesia Bhadra Utuma Foundation to train volunteers in the area on how to provide psychological first aid, psychosocial support and child protection. Together, we have built child-friendly spaces and helped more than 700 children.

Overcoming Challenges in the Central African Republic

Our field staff made their way along flooded roads as the rainy season began in the Central African Republic (CAR). These photos show just one example of how they traveled on foot to respond to reports of a measles outbreak in Vakaga, CAR, where they also screened and treated children for malnutrition.

Our Battle Against Ebola in the DRC Continues

The Ebola outbreak in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) — now the second-largest in history — has passed 2,300 cases. Our Emergency Response Team has been on the ground helping people since the beginning of the outbreak almost a year ago, and is a key part of the Ministry of Health’s efforts to contain the deadly virus.

Despite the challenges, there has been good news from the incredible health workers at our Ebola Treatment Center: Late last week, seven people left our Ebola Treatment Center in the DRC cured of the vicious disease, including two children aged just 3 and 4 years old! More than 100 people have now been cured at the center.

Celebrating World Refugee Day

Our teams around the globe celebrated World Refugee Day. These photos show our team in Pakistan recognizing this important day by hosting several events to commemorate the occasion.
