Of course, we’ll still write individual posts about international issues, but there’s just so much going on in the world that we thought an additional weekly round-up would be handy.
Today’s list is short. Not because there’s not much going on, but because I don’t have much time to write it:
UKRAINE: The Ukraine Red Cross and IFRC are helping to repair and waterproof houses in recently-flooded, vulnerable areas.
MALDIVES: The IFRC has undertaken the biggest single construction project in it’s history: building an entire island community in Maldives.
GAZA: The ICRC, Palestine Red Crescent Society, and Magen David Adom continue their efforts to bring humanitarian aid to the crisis in Gaza. Aid workers were allowed some access during a brief ceasefire today. We (the American Red Cross) are now contributing $500,000 to aid the humanitarian relief efforts.
