In Relief: Five Other Crisis Situations

As the world continues to give to the relief effort in South Asia, aid groups don’t want people to forget about the rest of the world. Here are five places that still need assistance.


In September 2004, Hurricane Jeanne caused flash flooding, killed 3,000, and left 200,000 homeless.

In December 2003, an earthquake in Bam killed 26,000 and injured 50,000. About 150,000 people are still in temporary shelters.

More than 1 million people have been displaced during fourteen years of civil war. Many who fled the country are now trying to return.

More than 20,000 children have been kidnapped to serve in militia groups.

The ongoing civil conflict has displaced more than 1 million people and killed at least 70,000. Chad, which hosts 200,000 refugees from Sudan, also needs help.

The American Red Cross, CARE, and UNICEF (among other charities) allow you to route money directly to these countries.
