Looking back at a year of commitment
Horn of Africa, Libya... Throughout 2011, ACTED has been on the frontline of a year struck by humanitarian emergencies in our countries of intervention. Our teams were mobilized to help populations affected by such shocks, and to help them rebuild their lives. These crises deepen the vulnerability of millions of women, men and children, but the most exposed in the limelight of the media hide the forgotten emergencies, such as the needs of flood-affected communities in Pakistan, cholera epidemics threatening the people of Africa, the food crisis in the Sahelian band, the challenge of rebuilding Haiti, as well as endemic situations of poverty the world over. ACTED responds every day to major crises while continuing community empowerment efforts by making the link between emergency, rehabilitation and support to development dynamics. We share our commitment to sustainable development with our partners on the ground and in Europe, with our teams, and with all private, public and nonprofit stakeholders striving for effective poverty reduction, as well as with the public. Let us keep this momentum in 2012.
