Relief organizations say almost one third of Iraqis need emergency humanitarian aid
Tuesday July 31st, 2007
The war in Iraq has led to the greatest mass exodus of people ever in the Middle East and threatens to overtake Darfur in the numbers of displaced. A report by Oxfam International and the NGO Coordination Committee of Iraq concludes 'the slide into poverty and deprivation since the coalition forces entered the country in 2003 has been dramatic, and a deep trauma for the Iraqi people.' One in seven Iraqis have fled for fear of being killed. More than 2 million are now in Syria and Jordan. Another 2 million are believed to be living away from their homes inside Iraq, often in makeshift camps. The report says 70 per cent of Iraqis don't have adequate access to clean water, compared to 50 per cent four years ago. Humanitarian aid has also declined from 53 million in 2005 to less than 00 million last year. British journalist Patrick Cockburn writes in the Belfast Telegraph the United States 'has 18 benchmarks to measure progress in Iraq but the return of 4 million people is not among them.' APTN cameras recorded the squalid conditions for internal refugees living near Najaf.

There has been a war going on in northern Uganda ever since 1987 between the rebels of the LRA ( Lord's Resistance Army) and the Ugandan government troops.
In 1996, President of Uganda Yoweri Museveni ordered that all villagers in the Acholi region of Gulu and Kitgum districts must relocate and start living in refugee camps they call 'Protected Camps." This camps have instead become death camps and in some cases, even worse than concentration camps that were in Germany. People living in these camps have been abused, women and young girls raped by Ugandan soldier who are supposed to protect them and LRA rebels come at will to abduct the children.
By 2004, the population of these camps spiked at over 2 million people. The international community has ignored this tragedy and Uganda's Western donors like Britain and USA, have instead continued to supply Ugandan government troops with arms and munitions as well as funds. These arms are later used to brutalized the civilians in northern Uganda.
