Responding to Crises in Burundi - October 2017 Situation Report
More than 1 million people have been reached since World Vision's teams started responding to the malaria crisis in Burundi.
Still, there's more work to do. World Vision continues to be concerned that:
- 6.4 million cases of malaria have been recorded in Burundi this year
- 1.76 million people are food insecure
- More than 422,000 people have fled Burundi in the last 3 years
- 2,845 people have died as a result of malaria this year
World Vision aims to provide more people with life-saving and life-changing assistance in the next six months.
Due to the ongoing crises in Burundi, World Vision is requesting an additional US $ 6.7 million to reach people who urgently need emergency assistance to access food, clean water, health care, nutrition, child protection, income and employment, shelter and education.
