Red Cross, EU launch ‘Silent Disasters’ campaign



The International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies has launched a campaign to draw more attention to what it calls ‘Silent Disasters’.
The organisation will broadcast a short film in 11 EU countries to highlight under-reported humanitarian crises.

It is backed by the EU Commissioner for Humanitarian Aid Kristalina Georgieva.

“Why it is important for these Silent Disasters to speak up because more people in more areas are affected by them and this stabilises local communities,” Georgieva said.

“For solidarity to work for all, we have to make the voices of people who are now in Silent Disasters heard.”

The campaign follows a series of Red Cross-backed documentaries by euronews journalist Chris Cummins, which covered Haiti’s post-quake recovery and the plight of Aborigines in Australia.

Red Cross research has found that 91 percent of the disasters they respond to often go unnoticed and can fail to attract the essential funds needed.
Watch the video below to learn more about the campaign and visit the IFRC's Silent Disasters page for more information. You can also watch euronews’ previous editions of Silent Disasters, produced in partnership with the IFRC, below the video player.

When I initially commented I appear to have clicked on the -Notify me when new comments
are added- checkbox and now whenever a comment is added I receive four emails with the same comment.
There has to be a means you are able to remove me from that service?
Cheers!

And I actually do have 2 questions for you if you don't mind. Could it be just me or does it look as if like a few of the remarks appear like they are coming from brain dead visitors? :-P And, if you are writing at additional online social sites, I would like to follow everything new you have to post.
