Urgent help needed to stop dire humanitarian crisis in I.Coast
More light has been shed on the dire humanitarian situation still existing in the Ivory Coast, some six months after the end of the post election violence.
Over 70% of the humanitarian needs for refugees and displaced people are yet to be filled, says a report released this week.
This conclusion is reached in a joint report published on Wednesday by three international humanitarian None Governmental Organizations (NGOs)--Oxfam, Danish Refugee Council and Care.
According to the report, humanitarian crisis of significant proportions remains, six months after the ousting of former Ivorian President Laurent Gbagbo.
While many thousands are still internally displaced with hundreds of their houses burnt, tens of thousands of Ivorians remain in refugee camps in Liberia and other neighbouring countries.
The NGOs therefore say it’s urgent for donors to commit more finding on a sustainable basis to avoid an already grave situation from further worsening.
