World in Progress:   Week 07

 

Forgotten crises

 

This week, we'll take a look at the conflict in the Central African Republic — one of the world's forgotten crises. We'll also hear from strong women in Honduras who fight against the deadly machismo culture in the country.

 

World in Progress: Dire situation in the Central African Republic

The conflict in the Central African Republic has displaced over one million people and there is no end in sight. Fighting between rival militias has forced them to flee their homes. The situation is particularly bad in the country's northwest. But even in the south, entire areas have been abandoned. The Red Cross warns that very soon as much as half the population will need humanitarian aid.

 

 

World in Progress: No peace in sight for the Central African Republic?

Fighting has intensified again in the Central African Republic where more than one million people have been displaced due to warring militias. According to the United Nations, over 2.5 million people are in dire need of assistance — they lack access to clean water and food. Jürgen Schneider went to a refugee camp on the outskirts of Kaga Bandoro in the country's north.

 

 

World in Progress: Fighting Honduran machismo culture

Honduras in Central America is one of the world's most dangerous countries for women. Every 18 hours, a woman is killed, according to the Violence Observatory at the National Autonomous University of Honduras. Violence against women is common in the country — activists say it's due to the machismo culture. We'll meet the women pushing for change.
