Emergency aid for displaced persons in the northwest region of the country
According to information from the United Nations, in June 2022 there were around 580,000 people fleeing conflict within Cameroon. The repression of the central government, coupled with the rebel attacks, has seen an increasing number of people flee to the more remote regions. The northern part of Anglophone Cameroon, the North West Region, has been particularly badly affected, with around 280,000 people internally displaced. The region is largely inaccessible due to the conflicts, infrastructure has been heavily neglected by the government and the people are reliant on food aid as a result.
Emergency aid for victims of the violent conflicts
For years, conflict between government troops and rebel militia has destroyed the lives of the people of the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Various militia groups have either been fighting each other or the Congolese army, often for access to valuable raw materials. As a result, this country has the largest number of internally displaced persons in Africa. According to UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, there are 5.9 million people on the run. The situation has become particularly bad in recent months with the number of refugees rising sharply; 600,000 in Goma alone.
Training and vocational support for young people with disabilities
In Egypt, people with disabilities find themselves excluded from society and disadvantaged in a number of ways. Even more so when they come from poor families. Despite the introduction of a very progressive legislation to the benefit of those with disability, disabled people are still experiencing discrimination on a daily basis and are often excluded from education, training, work life and social activities.
Combating domestic violence
The social and economic living conditions of the Palestinian population in the West Bank are shaped by decades of occupation, poverty, unemployment and deprivation. One consequence of this is the high prevalence of domestic violence. Women and mothers bear the brunt of everyday life. However, they often pass on their frustration and experience of violence resulting from overwork to their own children, who then become aggressive or react with school failure and behavioral problems. The situation has been made even worse in recent years by the corona pandemic.
Emergency aid for those affected by drought
Decade-long conflict, the effects of climate change with periodic drought and flooding, as well as a locust plague, have led to a massive economic downturn in Somalia. A shortage of food and higher prices due to the war in Ukraine have only further exacerbated the situation.
Supporting the “AusWegweiser” volunteer project
The “AusWegweiser” project is aimed at young people and young adults who often spend time in urban emergency accommodation. These young people are an average of 21 years old. The average length of stay in this type of accommodation for people under 25 is currently 7.8 months.
Emergency funds for socially disadvantaged families
The aim is to provide unbureaucratic, short-term support to families or individuals living in Baden-Baden, particularly those with a migration background or who have had to flee their home country and who, through no fault of their own, find themselves in acute financial difficulty.
