Depuis ton départ : les familles restées au pays

DO NOT REUSE

Chaque migrant qui entreprend un voyage laisse derrière lui une famille.

Nous avons tendance à nous intéresser au voyage lui-même et aux crises qui poussent les migrants à quitter leur foyer. Mais la migration ne concerne pas seulement les gens qui fuient les conflits ou demandent l’asile. Le nombre de personnes affectées est beaucoup plus important que le nombre de migrants en déplacement qui tentent de se traverser des frontières hostiles. Ceux qui restent derrière, loin des projecteurs et de l’attention des médias, doivent soutenir leurs proches dans leur périple. Ils portent dès lors eux aussi un lourd fardeau financier et émotionnel.

Notre reportage spécial s’intéresse au sort de deux de ces familles.

It was The New Humanitarian’s investigation with the Thomson Reuters Foundation that uncovered sexual abuse by aid workers during the Ebola response in the Democratic Republic of Congo and led the World Health Organization to launch an independent review and reform its practices.

This demonstrates the important impact that our journalism can have. 

But this won’t be the last case of aid worker sex abuse. This also won’t be the last time the aid sector has to ask itself difficult questions about why justice for victims of sexual abuse and exploitation has been sorely lacking. 

We’re already working on our next investigation, but reporting like this takes months, sometimes years, and can’t be done alone.

The support of our readers and donors helps keep our journalism free and accessible for all. Donations mean we can keep holding power in the aid sector accountable, and shine a light on similar abuses.
