Following revelations of unacceptable behaviour by humanitarian personnel, HI has warned that such acts cannot be tolerated or justified under any circumstances.
A new set of inclusion standards that provide humanitarian organisations with guidance to ensure older people and people with disabilities are not marginalised in emergency responses has been launched on 7th February.
HI has completed its demining operations in the Tshopo, Ituri, Bas-Uele and Haut-Uele provinces of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), launched in January 2016. Over a two-year period, HI and its local partner, AFRILAM (Africa for Anti-Mine Action) cleared 34,520 m2 of land of mines, the equivalent of 5 football pitches, benefiting the 5,600 inhabitants in the region.
