Humanitarian Crises that Didn’t Make Headlines – Malawi

Date

09 May 2023 18:00 to 19:00

Event Description

ABOUT

If you don’t read about it in the news, did it really happen? Every year, humanitarian crises affect millions of people around the world. From natural disasters to conflict and displacement, some crises make headlines, some don’t.  For this event series, the Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Freedomteamed up with the aid organization CARE.  CARE’s annual report “Breaking the Silence” highlights the ten most underreported crises of the past year. Together we shine a spotlight on each crisis, giving room for discussion and hearing from experts about challenges, opportunities, and the resilience of affected communities in each country. 

Although Malawi is one of the countries that is contributing least to the climate crisis, it is among the hardest hit by its effects. Extreme weather events such as drought and cyclones occur very frequently. As a result, food is scarce, with 5.4 million people not having enough to eat. We hereby invite you to examine the situation of the country from a humanitarian and political point of view together with international experts.

CARE was founded in 1945 to support post-war Europe with the famous CARE packages. Today, the independent aid organization works in over 100 countries to provide humanitarian aid and fight poverty with a focus on empowering women and girls.
