No preference

 

United Nations humanitarian chief Valerie Amos has allocated US$3.8 million from the Central Emergency Response Fund (CERF) for the UN Humanitarian Air Service (UNHAS) to support humanitarian operations in the Ebola-struck West Africa region.

Reduced commercial travel in the region has hindered the urgent deployment of healthcare personnel and supplies. This has severely affected the scale up of the urgent life-saving response to the Ebola outbreak in the region.

Perched on the side of the Bandiagara cliffs in northern Mali, the village of Sibi Sibi overlooks a dried creek bed. Drought has hit the village several times over the last decade, taking its toll on the livelihoods and health of the town’s 1,300 inhabitants.

Just two years ago, during the Sahel drought of 2012, Fanta Karembe, a twenty-one-year old mother from Sibi Sibi, had to fight to survive. Now, just as she was finally starting to recover from the last crisis, drought has again hit her village.
