Support needed to save and protect the many children and women in need (MGC)
On Wednesday, August 24, 2011, Mercy International Association at the UN heard first hand from Chris Tidey, a UNICEF Communication Specialist for Emergencies, who recently returned from Dadaab, Kenya where he was supporting UNICEF’s efforts in the Dadaab Refugee Camp, on how humanitarian support for the crisis across Somalia, Kenya, Ethiopia and Djibouti is critical for the more than 12 million people in dire need of assistance. In a teleconference hosted by Mr. Tidey, participants were given an overview of the crisis, the challenges faced by children and women living in and outside the refugee camp, UNICEF’s efforts on the ground, and the support needed to save and protect the many children and women in need.
