Crisis in Darfur

“The crisis in Darfur, in western Sudan, has led to some of the worst human rights abuses imaginable, including systematic and widespread murder, rape, abduction and forced displacement. Hundreds of thousands of civilians have died as a result of both deliberate and indiscriminate attacks, and more than 2 million civilians have been forced to flee from their homes. The situation on the ground has been plagued with renewed violence, Janjawid attacks, and aerial bombing by the Government of Sudan’s military. Currently, the Government of Sudan is resisting the UN Security Council-mandated peacekeeping operation that is desperately needed.


            
            Amnesty representatives have met with UN, U.S. and European officials to call for their vigorous action and have pressed the governments of Chad and Sudan directly. Amnesty’s global membership has also organized letter-writing campaigns and demonstrations to draw attention to the crisis.
The international community must, at long last, put a stop to these atrocities and bring relief to those who have survived but continue to suffer. Join the growing movement of citizens worldwide who are taking action for Darfur.”

            “In January 2011, Sudan is scheduled to decide whether or not to divide itself in two. Preparations are woefully behind, and civilians are at real risk of escalating violence and a potential return to war. In Darfur, nearly three million civilians are living in camps and facing violence, rape and critical shortages of water and medical aid. The country’s president remains wanted by the International Criminal Court for genocide, war crimes and crimes against humanity.”

Haitian Cholera Outbreak Worsens


Haiti earthquake map.png After the earthquake ,Haiti was left in devastating unrest. It seems thing are only getting worst for the natives if Haiti. 

Political unrest in Haiti is further complicating the cholera crisis. And according to an Associated Press report, the source of the outbreak has been narrowed down to a contingent of U.N. peacekeepers likely dumping waste into a tributary. Further lack of sanitation is going to prove an explosive problem here explains today’s newsletter from Soil, an organization in Haiti that provides compostable toilets.

Over 1 million people in Port au Prince‘s sprawling IDP camps are completely dependent on trucked water and clean sanitation facililities to protect them against cholera which is transmitted through water contaminated with infected feces. The services provided by medical facilities and public health employees are critical for containing the epidemic through treating the sick, burying the dead and decontaminating infected areas.

Imagine the implications of several days without sanitation services in Port au Prince. An example, in downtown Port au Prince and Petionville the camps of Place Boyer, Place Saint Pierre and Champs Mars (home to over 15,000 people) rely on approximately 450 portable toilets for sanitation.  These toilets are cleaned and emptied daily by a private company.  With a small holding capacity and extremely heavy usage, many of these toilets will fill in 1-2 days if not emptied.  Two days without desludging and the toilets of Champs Mars could be overflowing with over 5000 pounds of poop per day.  Also, recent reports indicate that in downtown Port au Prince portable toilets are being overturned and used as roadblocks, some spilling their contents into the streets where tens of thousands of people have gathered to express their discontent with the CEP and the UN troops.
