Disasters, Conflicts Internally Displaced Over 31 Million Last Year: Report
Storms, floods, drought, wildfires and other natural disasters are also forcing people from their homes. The numbers are on the rise, with three times as many people displaced due to these factors in 2016 than in 2015. Researchers fear these figures will grow as countries cope with climate change and more extreme weather events. The Democratic Republic of Congo topped the list of conflict-driven dislocation, with more than 922,000 new IDPs in 2016, exceeding Syria and Iraq, which came second and third, respectively. In eastern Congo, the United Nations has its largest peacekeeping mission there with 22,000 troops and police, funding for humanitarian appeals has dwindled and the Congo’s problems have fallen off the top of the international agenda.

The White House Also Targets Hundreds of Millions in Funding For U.N. Programs For Children and The Poor.
Colum Lynch has the scoop. “The White House budget office informed State Department officials this week that the administration plans to eliminate all U.S. funding to the $326 million International Organizations and Programs account, which provides more than $130 million to the U.N. Children’s Fund, a sizeable chunk of the more than $500 million the U.S. contributed to UNICEF in 2016, and around $70 million to the U.N. Development Program. They were also told to brace for a 40 percent cut to the State Department’s U.N. peacekeeping budget. The U.S. contributed over $2 billion to the U.N.’s $8 billion-plus peacekeeping budget last year.”

Through the Mirror of: Foreign Affairs
Present at the Destruction?
Covering the Trump administration is difficult because it requires disentangling three strands of its behavior: the normal, the incompetent, and the dangerous. The normal aspect the administration’s conventional Republican policies and appointments is, broadly speaking, politics as usual. The amateur aspect its early fumbling and bumbling is what one finds every time power changes hands, exacerbated by an unusually inexperienced incoming team. The danger is unique.

Deaths From Hunger Are Mounting in Somalia
Food From Aid Agencies Needed Urgently

A reminder that famine looms in Somalia. At least 26 people died from hunger in the semi-autonomous Jubbaland region of southern Somalia in just a day and a half. Somalia, like other countries in the region is facing a devastating drought that has killed livestock, cut harvests and left 6.2 million people about half its population is in need of food aid. The acute hunger gripping Jubbaland caused an exodus of hundreds of families into the capital Mogadishu seeking help. The Jubbaland assistant minister of interior saying that severe drought had killed the people over a span of 36 hours to Monday, all in various towns in middle Jubba and Gedo areas. The rivers have dried and there are no wells there, cows and farms have perished. Residents of the city supplied the families with bread and bowls of water but they said relief food from aid agencies was needed urgently. Most of the affected towns were controlled by al Shabaab militants, who have been waging a violent campaign to topple the Western-backed federal government in Mogadishu.

World Faces Worst Humanitarian Crisis Since WW II. The United Nations is warning that the world is facing its worst humanitarian crisis since the end of World War II, with more than 20 million people facing starvation and famine in four countries. The world body's humanitarian chief Stephen O'Brien called Friday for an urgent mobilization of funds $4.4 billion by July for northeastern Nigeria, Somalia, South Sudan and Yemen to "avert a catastrophe." Otherwise, many people will predictably die from hunger, livelihoods will be lost and political gains that have been hard-won over the last few years will be reversed," O'Brien said in his stark warning to the UN Security Council. Without collective and coordinated global efforts, people will simply starve to death. Many more will suffer and die from disease. Children stunted and out of school. Livelihoods, futures and hope will be lost. He called war-wracked Yemen "the largest humanitarian crisis in the world," with two thirds of the population, or 18.8 million people -- three million more than in January in need of assistance and more than seven million with no regular access to food. The conflict in Yemen has left more than 7,400 people dead and 40,000 wounded since an Arab-state coalition intervened on the government's side against rebels in March 2015, according to UN figures. In just the past two months alone, more than 48,000 people have fled fighting in the Arab world's poorest country, according to O'Brien, as it grapples with a proxy war fought by archrivals Iran and Saudi Arabia 'Arbitrarily Denying' Access ...more

Mission statement:
One of the most important principles of work IHRC is impartiality and independence. International Human Rights Commission painstakingly observes its aim for defending human rights not to become an instrument for political, economic or military interests. Particularly in conflict areas it attaches great value to asserting its independence from all parties involved. The nature and scope of the assistance are adjusted to the situation in the disaster zone within the framework of available possibilities. Aid measures are designed to suit the local conditions and are integrated in the economic, social and political context of a specific country or region. They are adjusted to respond to the needs and the situation of the victims, respect the dignity of the people, and protect valid laws and traditions. Aid commodities are deployed according to need and correspond to local standards. They are purchased locally so far as it is possible and useful. In its activities International Human Rights Commission is committed to the basic principles defending human rights and humanitarian aid as laid down UN and in the Code of Conduct of the Red Cross and Red Crescent and of non-governmental aid organizations in the context of emergency assistance.
