Giro555 launches help famine victims campaign

Today, the Cooperating Aid Organizations (Samenwerkende Hulporganisaties) announce a national campaign for famine victims in Yemen, north-eastern Nigeria, Somalia and South Sudan. In total, 20 million people are suffering from serious malnutrition in these and neighbouring countries. In South Sudan alone, 100,000 people are living on the brink of starvation. As of today, Giro555 takes action to save millions of lives.

Humanitarian aid

Farah Karimi, chairwoman of the Giro555 action: “Such a major disaster, spread over as many as four large areas, is unprecedented. A fatal combination of climate change, drought, poverty and violence puts millions of human lives at risk. In particular, the lives of children, the sick and the poorest are in acute danger. We cannot continue to sit back and do nothing. This is why I ask every Dutch person today: Donate for food, save lives. Donate to Giro555.

Yemen, north-eastern Nigeria, Somalia and South Sudan

In the first instance, the Giro555 campaign focuses on Yemen, north-eastern Nigeria, Somalia and South Sudan, where the worst famine occurs. Where possible, the money collected will also be used to assist neighbouring countries, where the hunger crisis is also rapidly spreading.

An official famine is an exceptional crisis with severe food shortages and during which mortality rates from malnutrition increase rapidly. An official famine has already been declared in parts of South Sudan, but in other countries a similar situation is likely to arise.

“Impossible choices”

According to Jolien Veldwijk (Care aid organization) who works in Yemen, two-thirds of the population currently needs help. “Mothers are faced with impossible choices: do I buy medicines or food for my critically ill child? Every ten minutes, a child dies from causes that could have been prevented. People here are stuck between the warring factions and are at risk of starvation,” according to Jolien Veldwijk.

The humanitarian aid organizations behind Giro555 provide immediate emergency aid, such as food, medical care and safe drinking water. At the same time, they work on longer-term solutions and making the population more resilient to weather conditions.

Karimi: “Our main challenge at the moment is gaining access to flash points in Yemen, north-eastern Nigeria, South Sudan and Somalia. Every day, aid workers of the Giro555 organizations set off to help victims. And we will continue doing so. At the same time, we need to realize that emergency aid does not resolve major crises. Aid workers do not end wars. This requires structural aid, diplomacy and political pressure.”

As of today, fundraising spots are broadcasted. In the coming weeks, campaigns will be launched throughout the Netherlands to raise money for this famine. People in the Netherlands, companies and organizations who wish to contribute, are more than welcome to do so.

Terre des Hommes in South-Sudan

In South Sudan, Terre des Hommes specifically works on the themes of food security, and water, sanitation and hygiene.
